The Hortus botanicus Leiden is open. Because of the coronavirus, practical matters concerning your visit may change. On this page you can read what is and what is not possible at the moment.

Current corona measures in the garden:

  • Only visit the garden if you feel healthy. So none of the following complaints in the past 24 hours: cold, runny nose, sore throat, slight cough or fever. 
  • Throughout the garden (Winter Garden, Tropical Glasshouses, the outdoor area and the Hortus Grand Café) it is compulsory to keep 1.5 metres distance from other visitors.
  • In the indoor areas of the Hortus (Winter Garden, Tropical Glasshouse, Hortus Grand Café, Garden House toilets) it is compulsory to wear a mouth mask
  • We’ve started working with a traffic light system in the Tropical Glasshouses. When the screen is green you can visit the glasshouses, when the screen is red you can either wait or visit another part of the garden first. 
  • Visitoris have to show their coronavirus entry pass to visit the gardens, glasshouses and the Grand Café of the Hortus botanicus Leiden. 
  • When entering event venues (such as the Oranjerie or Tuinkamer) our staff will also ask to see a coronavirus entry pass, for instance during lectures or Science Café's.
  • The maximum number of people on guided tours is now 10.
