In the weekend of 10 and 11 September the Hortus will be open for the Heritage Days Leyden. In this weekend the oldest botanical garden in The Netherlands will be freely accessible for everybody. Come and enjoy the beautiful garden, and, of course, the monumental glasshouses and Oranjerie (1744).

Open Monumentendagen 2016 (Heritage Days) in the weekend of 10th and 11th September highlight Icons and Symbols which refer to statues and signs with a special extra layer that exceeds itself. You see them everywhere in monuments: inside and outside, in ornaments, reliefs and in paintings. Monuments themselves may have iconic value in the skyline of the city, such as church towers, wind mills, city halls and castles.
