In the midst of the urban bustle of Amsterdam, you can find refuge and quiet in the city's famous botanical garden. An important centre of research and education for more than 375 years, the garden gives the Dutch capital significant historical relevance. In 2019 it is hosting an exhibition dedicated to botany and health. Medicinal plants contain active ingredients that have many positive effects on the body, but these are not the only focus of the exhibition: it also covers the plants that you can observe while wandering through the streets of Amsterdam. These restore a sense of authenticity to the urban environment and help maintain cleaner air. Wander through the greenhouses and feast your eyes on the beautiful greenery that surrounds you.
