The garden is only open but it deserves to go there and admire the so different plants. It free and you can see from little cactus up to huge. There are a lot of plants in different climate conditions.

When I lived at Bonn (1998-2006), I purchased the annual card for the Botanic Garden. Every weekend I went by and took thousands of pictures with my camera. They have a tropical forest garden house. You find a huge variety of succulents there too. From spring to summer, the outside area provides space to plants from Europe, Asia and the... More

We were in Bonn to go to Beethoven's house when we passed the Cathedral. The cathedral was open so we went in to give our respects. Tourist are welcomed to view the surroundings. We decided to stroll around and see the inside. It is a well preserved cathedral dating back to the 11th century. They have a tranquil garden with... More

This attractive and peaceful garden is just off the busy Poppeldorfer Allee. Plants are named and set out in an orderly fashion and the gardeners are cheerful and busy. It is easy to find your way to a lovely lake with seats for picnicking or just to watch the world go by, very relaxing and surprisingly quiet for the setting... More

A lovely small garden near the Poppelsdorfer Schloss. Well documented areas of plants. When we were there there was a sculpture exhibition. A good tropical glass house.

This is a lovely place which is shamefully unknown. There is a huge collection of plants outside and in glasshouses, including the giant stinker which regularly flowers. Part of the university, it also houses regular art exhibitions and last time i went, a collection of glass objects in animal shape scattered around so crocodiles near the pond, lizards near the...

I have entered the Garden by chance, while strolling around the city. Being there received friendly and qualified help in finding some exotic species. Even though, I misspelled its name ;) I like the people and the place. In the evenigs some small music events were organised nearby. Eventually, I spend some time around. Be happy to get back some...

A big and beautiful Botanic garden with various trees and plants. It is very recommended to take a tour what would explain you about different plants there or just sit there on Sunday (entrance is for free on that day) and enjoy the beautiful trees around you.

New to Bonn, we decided to explore the Botanical Gardens and were amazed at what we found. The Botanical Garden was a beautiful, serene oasis hidden in the bustle of a busy city. Bordered by the impressive Schloss, the garden was full of hidden pathways through the greenery, unique glass artwork scattered throughout, and a very interesting greenhouse. We came... More

A lovely park to walk around. Flowers were breath taking. A nice place to include on a sunny day. There is grass areas to have a picnic and plenty of photo ops for the flower lovers.
