Plantage aan het Water

De Amsterdamse Hortus Botanicus werd in 1638 opgericht als

medicinale kruidentuin voor artsen en apothekers. Het is een van
de oudste botanische tuinen ter wereld. De Oranjerie is een
rijksmonument. Al in 1715 werden op deze plek tropische planten
gekweekt in houten broeikassen. Het huidige gebouw is in 1875
gebouwd als collegezaal. Later werd dit langgerekte, gepleisterde
pand gebruikt als overwinteringplek voor citrusvruchten: 'oranje-
boompjes'. Nu huisvest het gebouw een modern museumcafé.

The Hortus Botanicus
The Amsterdam Hortus Botanicus was founded in 1638 as a medicinal garden for doctors and apothecaries. It is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. The Orangerie is a national monument: tropical plants were raised here in wooden greenhouses as early as 1715. The current building was built as a lecture hall. This stretched-out plaster-covered building was later used to store citrus plants, 'Oranjeboompjes' in Dutch, through the winter. Today, the building houses a modern museum café.
