My first experience at a Botanical Gardens and what an amazing one. The gardens are incredibly beautiful and definitely worth the journey time, which isn't actually that long with the amazing transportation system Berlin has in place but still, not as central as most attractions either. I loved the place so much as soon as we got home I researched... More

This magnificent place has a most impressive collection of plants from all kinds of eco-systems. Excellently displayed Japanese garden, rose garden, tropical greenhouses, medicinal garden, American prairie gardens, aquatic garden--all in a parkland setting. The arboreta is incredible. A+++++

I wasn't very impressed, but maybe the cause was the time of my visit - December. Although the weather was great, the garden wasn't lushy and full of colours. I expected to see the oldest plant fossil in the world (90 milion years old!), but no one was able to show me where it exactly is. The great attraction was... More

Beautiful grounds for those times when Berlin's parks don't offer enough escape. Even got to pick wild strawberries for myself.

Had a fantastic afternoon at the Botanical Gardens, there is loads to see could have easily spent the whole day here. The outdoor section is lovely to walk round on a sunny day, big wooded style areas surrounding a lake, very tranquil and relaxing. The different areas are separated into plants and trees from different regions of the world, all... More

Quite the best we have seen. Superbly managed and with a wealth of the world's plants and trees. The café serves excellent refreshments. We enjoyed our visit so much - worth a revisit at a different time of the year.

Here you can hear all about the individual stories of the people who escaped East Germany. It was so interesting and all the material was available in English as well as German. If you have time, definitely give it a visit.

Take the time to visit the gardens. Prepare to spend an afternoon to enjoy it. The flowers are amazing, the themes very well done, lots of pictures and aromas to take with you.

The botanical garden of Berlin is a huge area in Berlin-Dlem. The payed visit (about 6,- euros for an adult) requires about half a day. It is easily accessible from the city centre by public transports (S-Bahn and busses). The greenhouses are extraordinary well kept and allow oberservation of many foreign plant species. The outside area is huge and extraordinary... More

Just 800 by 600 meters – about 10% of London’s Kew Gardens – but what it lacks in size it makes up in charm and layout. The gardens are organized extremely well, unfortunately signposted only in German. Geographic location rather than plant categories are the deciding factors in the garden layout. Visibly elevated areas suggest mountainous regions. Botanical Museum next... More
