Berggarten, Hannover

(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Part of one of the largest botanic garden complexes in Europe, Berggarten is a sprawling natural world sheltering hundreds of colorful native and exotic plants. Created in 1666, the garden was long used for breeding experiments of various plants not native to the northern climate of Lower Saxony. Though the experiment failed in its attempt to grow rice, it was successful in the cultivation of tobacco and mulberry. The garden now contains several historic conservatories, most of which were built in the 19th century to house one of the biggest collections of palm trees in all of Europe. In 2000, a state-of-the-art greenhouse was opened, designed to display plants normally found in the rainforest. This indoor tropical landscape contains more than just plants, as different species of tropical butterflies and birds have also been introduced and incorporated into the protected environment.

  • The mountain garden among the manor houses gardens, which includes more than 12,000 plant species and very old trees. A special highlight is the Orchid House, which was renovated last year. The mountain garden can be visited all year round.

  • For many years we visit this garden and it shows a different look every time – often of course also seasonally -. This is fascinating and makes a visit never a dull moment. I know beyond a few public gardens that are such loving and knowledgeable maintained. TIP: As a member of "friends of manor houses gardens" for a relatively little money a membership card, which grants free admission for one year - and that also exists for the herrenhäuser gardens and the castle with its exhibitions.

  • Who here still was not, who should do it. The variety of plants, which is to find and to marvel at, is always worth a trip. Nothing for Hektiker, because you have to stop again and again, otherwise it passes between the most beautiful plants and points of interest. I wanted to look at only the Welfs mausoleum but is simply too good to run only through the garden.
