"Hortus Botanicus"... sounds like a spell that Harry Potter would say, waving his wand around.
The Botanical Garden makes a very pleasant change of pace from museums and sight-seeing. Most of the plants were collected a few centuries ago by the Dutch East India Company, and some are at risk of becoming extinct now. Don't miss the Palm House.
The garden isn't too big - I think we wandered around the whole of it in about half an hour, although we might have stayed longer if we'd been in town for more than a day.
Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam
This is one of the oldest botanical garden in the world (from 1638). It's a living museum with some plants more than 300 years old. I was very surprised to see the Welwidschia-plant from the desert of Namibia (you will find a picture in my Namibia-travelogue)
One of the oldest botanic gardens in the world.
Different tropical greenhouses (lovely on a cold day), gardens & a small butterfly house.

The Hortus Botanicus is a great place to spend an hour or two in Amsterdam! It is a botanical garden with great old atriums! Also, a nice break from the overwhelming hordes of people on the street!
