Good price value (4€ entrance fee), nice and calm atmosphere and a great variety of plant species are definitely good reasons for going there. A small drawback is that most of the info about the plants is only available in dutch.

Cheap to visit and lovely staff who had good English. Great variety of plants and trees from across the world outside and in the tropical greenhouses. Even have a place for endangered plants which you could go into (just don't touch!), fantastic to see them...More

Botanical garden linked to Delft Tech. Cola and Rubber, Cucumber and Ginger trees: it's all there, in the tropical glasshouse and in the garden: studied over generations and applied in industry worldwide. A must see in the Netherlands!

The botanical garden was small, but had so many varieties of plants. It's surprising how many kinds of plants can survive in The Netherlands. Admission is free for students!

The garden is an actual study garden attached to a university. You should adjust your expectations accordingly. It is very inexpensive and the people in the shop are lovely. If you are interested in botany, you will enjoy it.

I did visit early January but it was a very short visit. Although the garden remains open, it’s, put mildly, the low season for all plants in there. Pretty bleak, and not much to see. I would recommend to wait until spring.

A ' technical garden' and linked to the university yet really well laid out with an excellent range of interesting plants and displays showing how the links to common products and foods are made.

This small botanical garden is well worth a visit. As part of Delft’s Technical University, the garden specializes in plants of scientific and medicinal value. When I was there in August there was an interesting exhibit of various kinds of chili peppers. Don’t visit the...More

A century old this year, so extra festive. The garden had a lot of regular plants, flowers and trees, but also special ones: medicinal, poisonous or almost extinct. The latter section is within an enclosed area to protect it from the birds.

We loved this small piece of heaven in Delft. Fair warning: if you don't like to garden, or like to visit gardens, this tour may not be for you. It only cost 4 Euros to visit. There is a medicinal garden, hot houses and a...More
