The Botanic Gardens


The Botanic Gardens are located at the heart of Utrecht Science Park. They were laid out on and around Fort Hoofddijk, which dates from the 19th century. This extraordinary stretch of green space, covering nine hectares, is part of Utrecht University. To this day, the Botanic Gardens continue to serve their primary function, which is to support education and research. In addition, there has been an increasing focus on the public role played by the Botanic Gardens. Nature conservation, especially in an international context, is another important aspect.


As an organisation, the gardens date back to 1639, making it one of the oldest botanic gardens in the whole of the Netherlands.


On and around Fort Hoofddijk, a total of six gardens were planted, each with its own distinctive character:

  • Rock Garden
  • Systematic Garden
  • Discovery Garden (Theme Garden)
  • Greenhouses
  • Outer Fort
  • Wildlife Garden
