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.

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.

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.
