  • In the Botanical Garden, you can see many great plants in the summer and enjoy. It is also recommended to connect the Zoo visit.

  • Unfortunately, I was in late summer at the Botanical Garden and could only hint at how beautiful flowering plant must be. Lovingly landscaped areas invite you to take a walk.

  • 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..
  • Relax and peaceful.
  • Have now been in the flowering phase there. beautiful planting, according to the season. At this time of the year, one should try to go so you can experience live how the green of nature conquers the world every 2-3 weeks out. Beautiful and pleasant places to the stay in the Sun or in the shade. If the extension with the new stream is completely finished even more beautiful and more peaceful as before. Only drawback, that is not the garden, it's the visitors. Please don't just carelessly throw away cigarette butts. We all can do a lot for the cleanliness of our city and our nature. We just have to do it. Careless handling of the nature is the downfall of humanity. At the moment only 3 stars, because reconstruction not yet completed, and early flowering.
