    The Botanical Garden is great integrated in the Teutoburg Forest. It blooms and actually sprout something every season. Usually, it is a place of peace and relaxation. We did also have a guided tour in the snow (February), even then much useful information is communicated. Whenever we visit this beautiful place if us is right now. Parking can be scarce when the weather. Tip: also to reach public transport well.

    The Bot.Garten Bfld lies on the slope of the Toutoburger forest is is very well kept, always worth a visit. Located nearby is the Tierpark Olderdissen and diagonally opposite an old Bielefeld Friehof with beautiful old Gräbern.Auch of the teacher of the last German Emperor is buried here. Nice old stock of shrubs, etc.

  • It's a beautiful place.. Green and well maintained.. It doesn't charge an entrance fee but you are welcome to donate for the maintenance.. Suitable location for a day out..
  • Just great for me. In the summer you can see fireflies at night sometimes, and you can be there super with friends. Young people and perhaps even adults can meet there at night, and drink. I find it super here to live. It is worth to visit the Botanical Garden in Bielefeld. There in the summer always very beautiful colorful flowers (in the other seasons, but in winter not so nice, because in winter Yes not flowers can grow so well.) The only thing that is not so good, is that no food or even just something to drink there. You can get married but very good at the botanical gardens. Each summer very very many couples come in the Botanical Garden of marriages. So just come in the Botanical Garden. It's free, and 🌷🌹 beautiful.
