dinner at a unique location

Do you have something to celebrate? Would you like to surprise your guests with a dinner at a unique location in Amsterdam? Organise your dinner in the monumental Orangery or the Palm greenhouse in the Hortus Amsterdam.

dine in the orangery

The Hortus Amsterdam is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. Also the Orangery, which houses the Hortuscafé, is located in a centuries-old monument where you can dine among the exotic plants.

The spacious and bright Orangery offers a special ambiance for an exclusive dinner. The glass doors give direct access to the beautiful terrace in the garden. You can dine both indoors and outdoors. In case of bad weather, the terrace can be partially covered by tents. Beautiful candle lights and a campfire complete your party.

Dinner in the Palm Greenhouse

For an exclusive and stylish dinner we also offer the Palm Greenhouse in the summer season (depending on weather conditions from May to October) for events.
The Palm Greenhouse is an iconic, light, monumental greenhouse that houses our collection of palms and cycades in the winter, and functions as a great location for events in the summer months.


To be able to meet your wishes as much as possible when you hire room(s) with us for lunch, dinner or drinks, the Hortus works together with a selection of experienced caterers and suppliers who know the various rooms and their possibilities well.

Information about the current caterers can be requested from our staff.
