One of my favorite things to do while traveling abroad is to visit a city’s botanical garden. De Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam did not disappoint. I fell into a plant-lover’s wonderland, eyes-wide brimming with joy, excitedly taking in the majestic beauty of it all. The serene energy emanating from the luscious gardens swept me into such a peaceful state of mind. Oh, how I longed to move my things in and make De Hortus Botanicus my home!

De Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It is located within the city of Amsterdam making it a perfect destination to retreat from the noise and stress of the urban environment. The gardens are open daily and include a delightful cafe and cute gift shop. De Hortus Botanicus was definitely a highlight of the trip so I just had to share!
