We followed the signs from the town centre which were very useful. The Gardens are lovely, easy to walk round and to follow the plan. Interesting plants in the greenhouse. Children got a bit bored though.

A smallish botanical garden, charmingly presented. We were lucky that there was a quirky art display and Indonesian food stalls. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit!

A calm place for an interesting stroll to see a good range of plants. This is not a garden like RHS ones in England, nevertheless it was worth a visit. Very helpful staff who spoke English. Some good projects going on.

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.

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.
