Just stroll through the beautiful park. Great in every seasons and good for fotoshoots. Not very educational.

I've only been the once but now i've got the museumkaart i'm itching to go back. Beautiful place! Took me a while to find the entrance so maybe check google .. oh and check the map when you are there so you don't miss the "secret" bit across the road!

In every time of the year this place is very good for people who are looking for some rest and a quiet place with nature. As there are not real woods in the Rotterdam area, this is a nice alternative. Just strolling aounr, but also a huge variety of trees and flowers etc. If lucky, the tea room is open... More

Great place to spend a sunny afternoon! Luscious trees all around, benches, grass that invites a picnic and a small café for coffee and a sweet treat. If you have a museumkaart there is no entrance charge.

The Arboretum is one of the botanic garden of Rotterdam: situated nearby the University (Tram 21/24 Woudestein), it is enjoyable in all seasons: you will have the opportunity to see different types of flowers and birds all around. This is so peaceful to go there and it's very cheap. I particularly loved the greenhouse and the bird aviary!

Arboretum Trompenburg is somewhere in between a park and a botanical garden, that is a botanical garden that feels more cozy and relaxing. It still one of my favorite spots to relax in Rotterdam, nice plants, conveniently placed benches to relax, and a nice cafe in the middle of it. The entrance fee is around 6 euros, but if I... More

During our trip in Rotterdam we visited the arboretum and it was perfect. It is a beautiful garden with different types of trees and flowers, a small spring. It is a quiet place, perfect for a slow and relaxing walk. It has also lots of benches if someone wants to rest or just to sit and enjoy the view. It... More

The collection of trees from all over the world transplanted to this special garden is at least as spectacular as the flowers and flowering bushes and canals with their ornate bridges. Rarely crowded except for Sundays, it's a haven of tranquility and bird song and scented air. I live near it and so have a season pass. It's also free... More
