We visited Berggarten around 20 minutes after Herrenhausen. The ticket is also valid for both places. It is not very interesting when comparing with other botanical gardens and parks. If you have time, take a short trip to this one.

This garden is included in the price of the Herreenhausen ticket and is just across the road. However, its missable, unless you're a fan of botanical gardens. The hothouses were just too uncomfortable in the summer.

This is another brilliant garden. Entrance is included with the rest of Herrenhausen. As well as the botanical specimens there is an interesting mausoleum in the grounds which unfortunately cannot be entered.

If you're a botany enthusiast, this is a must-see! There are several greenhouses with exotic plants (orchids, cacti, etc) and a large French garden that is superb in spring and summer. You can also get combined tickets with the Sealife Aquarium or Herrenhauser Garten.

For my mind - it's one of the best and interesting botanic gardens in Europe. There you can see a lot of flowers, rather big collection of orchids and flowers for your country house and flats.

We visited the main, French style garden which was a lovely place to visit; quite expensive if you only visit this one garden because you can only buy a combined ticket that allows entry to 2 gardens or one garden and a museum so leave more time!

See my review of the Royal Gardens as they are attached to it. Really well set out and clearly marked. Lots of flowers out in July and just a really nice place to walk around.

dont be shocked by buying tickets at the ticket box- the lady was very very unpolite. But inside the garten it was very nice.

We spent the morning and part of the afternoon wandering around the grosser garten and went to the botanic Berg Garten in the afternoon. It was well worth a visit as the greenhouses contained spectacular plants and the grounds contained the mausoleum containing the remains of the Elector of Hanover and first Hanoverian King, George I. Botanically, everything is well... More

Very well maintained, across from the Herrenhausen gardens, buy the combo ticket, green houses with orchids and cactus, small pond with ducks, heath and heathers, comfy benches with leg rests.
