The Hortus Festival

I amsterdam
July/August 2013. Every summer, the Hortus Festival brings classical music to the Amsterdam botanical gardens.

Providing a beautiful way to spend a balmy yet cultured summer evening, the Hortus Festival brings classical music to the botanical gardens of Amsterdam, Haren, Leiden and Utrecht every year. Performances in Amsterdam take place on various dates between July and August 2014.

Live classical performances

In 2014, the Hortus Festival looks set to celebrate its 11th year with live classical music performances on the terrace of the Orangery at the Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam. Traditionally held on various Thursday evenings throughout July and August, the performances vary from funky jazz to passionate tango. The Orangery usually adjust their evening menu for each performance, in keeping with the character of the different acts.
