  • This is a welcome retreat as it's hard to find much peace in the mad city of Berlin. The greenhouses are wonderful and weren't too hot when we went on a hot summer's day.  more »
  • It takes getting used to the idea that as a forneiger you have to pay cash at 60% of the places you visit in Berlin. Or you must have a creditcard of a bank located in Germany. Foreign cards not accep...  more »
  • A beautifully designed system and one botanical night should have seen necessarily in July!

  • Favorite place for an indoor tropical vacation. The conservatories and greenhouses are fun for adults, families, young students and art students alike. I’d give it 5 stars except for construction. The Christmas lights start In 2 days and would be worth the visit too. There is a chili & schocolade exhibit we really enjoyed in the garden and museum.
  • Nice botanical garden. Went there for the christmas period with the company. Fun but really short. If it wasn't company sponsored, I would not go there for 17€ during the week. Not worth it. Apart from the Christmas period, it must be a fantastic botanical garden with nice indoor.
  • The Christmas garden event lasts til 7th of January. If you want to see nice illumination inside of the botanical garden it's the right spot in Berlin to get the last Christmas and peace feeling in the new year :) it takes 45 minutes to walk through with some short stops and 1 hour if you stay longer for a hot wine un the middle or take more pictures ;)
  • I visited at night in December specifically for the Christmas Garden. It was quite beautiful. There was also food, coffee and gluwein available and an ice skating rink.
  • Absolutely stunning and worth the effort to explore for a day trip. We went in October and it was still beautiful. Bring food and perhaps picnicking material.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
