If you like unusual and interesing plants do not miss this place. The garden is organised into different continents. The glasshouses are packed with wonderful plants. They have every tree imaginable in the arboretum and the woodlands in spring were full of fresh plants from across the temperate world and a joy to walk around. I spent 5 hours here... More

The gardens were an easy walk, or a very short bus ride from our hotel - the Steglitz International. You may visit on your own, or take a guided tour. The garden is well laid out, and the various trees and plants are well marked.

I'll start by saying it wasn't easy to get to by public transport, being outside the city centre. But we persevered and for the £2 it cost us with welcome card discount, we had a very pleasant morning. I can only imagine the parkland is stunning in summer, although nice enough for a stroll at any time of year. The... More

Although the outside is quite gray in winter or early spring, the greenhouses made up for this: beatiful well-cared plants, cactis and palm trees of all kind. No rush, no crowd, peace and greens. We loved the experience!

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
