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.

You stand on sit on small tables and drink beer or wine outside in the summer, spring, and fall and enjoy good company. Much to your surprise many Germans under 35 are very friendly and open and speak great English so do not let this deter you from traveling. It has never stopped me and I get claustrophobic and I...

I have had the chance to visit many botanical gardens of sorts all around the world and although this one was nice it was not unique nor well organized. The different rooms had some variety but plants were packed in small places while there was much more room available on the grounds. All the interesting things were batched together what... More

Just outside the city, (take the U-Bahn no. 4 or 5 to Herrenhausen stop) there is a wonderful English-style garden, filled with magnificent beds of flowers and shrubs (for the children there is also a sea-World exhibition). It is large and takes a while to wander through. There is also a collection of over 1000 orchids, of which at least... More
