We did a family photo shoot here, and it was gorgeous everywhere, even in autumn and even in a slight drizzle.

One of the best places for a cold rainy day. Got to one of the greenhouses an enjoy the atmosphere and flora of a warm rainforest or better yet a dry hot desert. Of course a sunny spring or summer day is even better since you can also enjoy the gardens and plants outside.

It's sad that I only spent 2-3 hours there, if I had enough time I would have definitely spend my whole day there, it's full of nature, such a peaceful place !! You should definitely go and relax !!

I attended a wedding here a couple of years ago and it was quite a charming affair. I also attended several other events including the garden by night when they participated in city wide light installations

Both the interesting greenhouses and well-tended grounds were a pleasure to experience. Ate apples off the trees and watched carp in the lake. It was fun and a welcome change from the intense city atmosphere.

Pleasantly surprised to learn the Palmengarten was open to the public in winter. Beautiful indoor Christmas tree display using natural decoration, peaceful walking paths and winter gardens to enjoy outdoors and a pleasantly lighted display on the exterior of some buildings.
