I visited Loki Schmidt to see the Japanese garden and I was not disappointed. It is laid out faithful to the Japanese style, though it is not maintained to meticulous Japanese standards. The Chinese garden next to it is also laid out in Chinese style. Most of the garden is more typical of a botanical garden, set out in geographic zones, with the plants labelled. Even so, beauty arises here too. The rock garden is a surprising feature. Entrance is free but donations are welcome. Access is easy with Klein Flottbek S-bahn station and several bus routes on its doorstep.

The Botanical Garden is part of the university, and you can really learn a lot about the history of plants. Well presented and very enjoyable! The garden also represents many regions like the Alps, China, North American prairies and many more. In addition, you can learn about poisonous plants. There is also a pond, a small garden shop and a café. Great place to visit, very close to the subway, and free of charge.

This garden is spectacular. It is free to public. The number of different species including Sequoia, left us amazed as we wandered through the trails along streams and woodland paths. There are areas devoted also to types of rocks, a gift shop and cafe.

I stay very close to this garden, but it was not before 6 years that I visited it last week. Bang opposite to the Klein Flottbeck S Bahn (Metro) station, it is extremely easy to reach.

Initially it looked like any other garden, but as I explored it, I started getting more interested in it. Different sections for different plants. One section is dedicated to the poisonous plants, while other to Cactus. A good restaurant inside and an exhibition of Charles Darwin.

There is a beautiful lake in the middle of the park and that is beautifully landscaped. I must say, I should have visited this much earlier.

And it is free.

This is a wonderfully designed botanical garden holding specimens from all over the world. Plants are classified by region and country and well labeled. The paths are well maintained and easy for all. Easily accessible by metro or bus.

This is a beautiful Botanical Garden under the administration of Hamburg University,
I discovered by chance. Usually I used to go for long walks with my spouse from place where I had been staying and this Garden is about 2.5 Kilometres from there. Those who wish to reach either from Hamburg Airport or Central Station, they should take S1 Metro going to Wedel and get down at station, Klein-Flottbek. Garden will be right in front when you come up the station stairway. Entrance is free and enjoy the beautifully maintained Garden which offers hundreds varieties of plants, flowers , trees and a lake and landscaped path for visitors. Most of plants and flowers bear the names and those who have majored in botany will be delighted to see the collection of variety of plants and flowers. There are willows, night shades, pines etc. So are tulips and daffodils. There are cosy corners for resting and enjoying the beauty and the freshness of the Garden . Listen to chirping of birds and also swans swimming in canals and lake. There is a Japan Garden and Buddha in the centre and meditating enclosure for visitors. Occasionally you may come across school kids along with their teachers and kids enjoying their outing in the natural environment and developing a sense of love for flowers and plants .
You may visit Café Palme' in the garden for refreshment.
I enjoyed visiting this Garden quite often during my stay in Hamburg.

My wife loves gardening and due to that fact I decided to do her the favour and visit the botanical garden in Klein-Flottbek.
Not only she, but also I enjoyed the spectacular scenery and since our visit took place in the midst of a week we had the garden almost to ourselves. It takes immense efforts to maintain it and therefore we were surprised that no entrance fee had to be paid, so we used the donation box to show that we were pleased.

The new botanical garden of Hamburg offers a great variability in plants, trees and grasses. The park is divided in the different continents South America, North America Asia and Europe. Marvelously kept and beautifully designed this park offers a nice Sunday afternoon stroll. Easy to get to by public transportation (S Klein Flottbeck). Worth the visit!

The Loki-Schmidt-Garten, also known as the Botanischer Garten der Universität Hamburg is a botanical garden maintained by the University of Hamburg. It covers approximately 62 acres and it is located at Ohnhorststrasse 18, Hamburg, Germany, beside the Klein Flottbek station in the Osdorf quarter. The university created the garden to teach botany to university students. It has an unbelievable variety of plants gorgeously arranged by region and usage.

The garden is organized into three major sections: an 8.6-acre systematic garden consisting of 90 beds of plants organized by evolutionary relationship, a geographical garden consisting of plants arranged by geographic origin with areas for Europe, North America, southern South America, and East Asia. This section also includes an alpine garden, Japanese garden, and Chinese garden. The final section includes a plant and man garden with five thematic gardens: Farmer's Garden, Biblical Garden, crops, pharmacy garden, and poisonous and medicinal plants.

In 2012, the garden was renamed for Hannelore "Loki" Schmidt who cared for endangered plants and collected rare species. She was the wife of former chancellor Helmut Schmidt. Plan to spend some time browsing the garden and relaxing on one of the many lounge chairs and benches strategically placed around the gardens. You can take a break in the cafe or the students' cafeteria, which is open to the public.

The garden is open daily and there is no admission charge. The garden is handicap accessible to wheelchairs, persons with walkers and strollers. Some of the paths are packed earth but should not pose an obstacle to persons with mobility challenges. There are restrooms in the café. You may take pictures anywhere in the garden. For those of you who have an iPhone but do not speak German, download the Google Translate app. It is a handy translation tool that is invaluable when trying to read German signs and directions.
