In my oppinion its the second most beautiful thing in berlin regarding museums, the first one is the technological museum. It has a very beautiful garden (greenhouse) which has lots of plants from all over the world. The whole place is big and i think that you have to spend 3 hours to see it all. You will be amazed...

The place is amazing! There are several buildings that are connected to each other and contain hundreds of different kinds of trees, flowers, cactuses and even a small pond beautifully decorated with giant goldfish. The smell inside was a delight, I walked around for over an hour and enjoyed every minute. I started my round at the garden itself. I... More

Had one day to spare when visiting Berlin. Chose to spend in it the botanical garden to get away from the traffic and pavement/concrete. 6€ in entrance fee is not bad keeping in mind all the constant maintenance a botanical garden needs.

Fabulous gardens to visit, good pathways and well posted to growing regions. Greenhouse displays were awesome , all plants well labelled and beds well set out. Plenty of walkways/paths to go along to get different viewpoints ample seating and shaded areas when needed. Good value at 6 euros entry for adults.

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!
