Plantentuin


"Botanical Garden"

Adjacent to the Saint Elisabeth Hospital and behind the Mayer van den Berg Museum you'll find Antwerp's famous Plantentuin, a small and historical botanical garden in the heart of the city. In 1825, the vegetables in the hospital garden had to make room for more noble plants. Doctor Sommé thought it more interesting to cultivate plants that were useful for the biology classes in the Medicine College. This Hortus Botanicus still has an interesting variety of plants and trees, each with its very own name tag. Entrance is free.
