Botanischer Garten reviews
Can’t say enough about this well kept garden...the fragrant trees a delight, the hydragenas gorgeous! Highly recommend. more »
The place is great for a fast visit, but not great for to do it with a buggy. No place to eat, good bathroom. more »
The Botanical Garden Bielefeld is quite small compared to other botanical gardens but it's a wonderful place to wander, watch humbling bees and enjoy the sun and flowers. more »
Pretty place to be, not very big, but has a variety of flowers.
Thet were "renovating" but still gorgeous. It's spring so loads of flowers. Also loads of benches and places to sit and enjoy the gardens in peace. The walk to get here includes hills but it's nice to see the gardens from different levels.
Lovely peaceful place, very relaxing.
An exquisitely nice and natural garden.
Beautiful place to enjoy the peace and quiet during spring.
