The Hortus can arrange tours which focus on special themes like trees, medicinal plants, the greenhouses (very suitable on a rainy day!), religion, love and marriage or evolution.

Guided tours can be arranged in Dutch, English, French and German. Each tour lasts about one hour, shorter if desired.
