Pass on this if it is winter time. I can imagine the beauty in Spring/Summer but my lord was this just awful in Winter. No blooms in the greenhouses and the museum is a total waste of time. (Trust me!) Many other ways to spend the day in Berlin and all of them are better!

My mother-in-law loves flowers of all kinds, so I knew that we had to take her at some point. When they came to visit in late January, I didn't think I'd be able to take her because of the weather. Luckily I read some reviews that mentioned how big their greenhouses are. I think there are 14 or 15, and... More

We went to the Berlin Botanic Gardens in only 15 mins via S1. Also bus M48 goes direct from Spittelmarkt to Botanic Gardens. Entrance 6 euro each for a potential 43 hectares and 22000 plant species. We did the Winter Walk route along a sugaring of snow via scented plants to the glasshouses and the Tannenbaum (fir tree) section of... More

November is not an ideal month to visit this gorgeous place. It's one of the biggest botanical gardens we've ever visited. There are so much to see, especially for those plant-lovers. The glass house is one light spot and various birds and small animals are great sparks in this garden. Very recommendable if you visit Berlin in a proper season... More

You do have to travel outside of the city center, but it'll be well worth it. You can easily spend an entire day in this horticultural treasure trove. All seasons offer lots to enjoy. Not only trees, plants and flowers, but also birds, butterflies and bees. And don't forget to visit the many large greenhouses with their exotic collections. Very... More

Yes, I know that I visited in November on a day when the S-bahn was on strike, so I had an awful bus journey there, but to charge 6 euros to get in when the outdoor plants were either dead or looking sorry for themselves, there was a fair amount of work going on both in the gardens and building...

We visited a bit early for the full autumn leaf colours, still a great place for a visit. Wouldn't advise following the map though, do your own thing, unless orienteering is second nature.

We went there without really looking into it beforehand, because we visit every botanical garden in every city. So it added to the amazement of crossing a busy street, getting into a place surrounded by walls in the middle of a city and BOOM. You weren't in that city anymore, you weren't even in a 'garden' anymore, this was just... More

Nice glasshouses. Pretty large garden to stroll around. Buy Some lunch in the local bakery and eat it in the park. About a mile's walk from the tube. Try to go to Wannsee afterwards.

Came here on a damp day. The green houses were interesting and when it stopped raining the walk through the woods was lovely. This is probably more interesting during the growing season when there is colour and plants in abundance, but it still was a pleasant way to spend the day. Not sure this would be top of my list...
