It's amazing and colourful! You can see plants from every part of the world! Keep attention to the way you are dressed because inside the room with the plants the temperature is really high!

This is hidden away near the Nymphenburg Palace. For us it provided a relaxing end to our visit, although I am sure gardeners will get much more out of it. We enjoyed the Glasshouses and exploring the different climatic zones. My children spent a lot of time discussing which climates the preferred, as well as spotting plants like Cinammon. It... More

We hadn't planned to visit but saw the path through from the Schloss Nymphemburg and decided to check it out. Initially, a little dull with formal gardens laid out with a plant in turn, we happened upon the greenhouses... A fantastic show of cacti, tropical plants and superb ferns. Other than that, there are nice formal borders, a wild flower... More

The botanical gardens were very unimpressive. I enjoyed the statute in the centre of the fountain for a photo or 2. Otherwise the gardens were frequented by fairly drunk individuals. From a botanical perspective I saw nothing interesting or capitivating

If you're a plant person, this is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. The greenhouses are quite nice, but make sure you walk around. I especially loved the Alpine Garden and the pond area.

My wife is into the plant seen. She thinks it is 5 stars, so thus the rating. I am not such an enthusiest but still thought pretty cool. Think worth the 5euro entry

Near Nymphenburg Palace, the botanical gardens have a beautiful arrangement of flowers in the main area bursting with colors. As a result, you do need to be careful of the many bees flying to and fro. On one side there's a wonderful green area along some water with lots of trees with some benches providing a nice quite place to... More

Beautifully planted borders, quite vivid colour combinations which I could not envisage in my own garden but they really worked in this situation with really bright sunshine. The planting reminded me more of the grounds of a stately home rather than a botanical garden, especially as there were also vegetable beds. Their wildflower meadow was the best I have ever... More

A lovely place for a walk and the flowers are beautiful to photograph. It is also close to the Nymphemburg palace, which makes a nice bonus visit.
