  • We went on a beautiful spring day in the Botanical Garden and have asked us why we were not all over the world in America, New Zealand, Mauritius, Asia and many European cities in the Botanical Garden, but still in our home town. This garden can absorb it with many around the world.

  • To the flourished the rhododendron and the azaleas especially beautiful and the giant tree is very impressive. Only we have can not really find a parking space.

  • Who in the spring, summer or early autumn a suitable place for his wedding photos (alternative family photos...) is looking for, is here. The Botanical Garden was founded at the beginning of the 20th century, is divided in different habitats and is home to approximately 3,000 plant species. In late spring it will be one here quite colorful, but the winter also has a beauty in the Park. It is by the way, open all year round and no entrance fee.

  • 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.

  • Small Botanical Garden in Bielefeld in the but really each plant with botanical such as German name is signposted. There are different areas, Aplinum, Rohododendronbereich, Heath... Highly recommended on a sunny day to look at!

  • The Botanical Garden offers a good opportunity for beautiful walks, could provide more information within the garden.

  • The Botanical Garden is the most beautiful, nor the largest of its kind. But it's free and worth a visit. You can relax there perfectly. For me a highlight tour of the bee people. You can open a comb completely safely and watch the bees at work.
