Berggarten, Hannover
(4.7/5 based on 120+ 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 is gardens as a botanical garden, next to the baroque garden and the landscaped garden of Georg, part of manor houses. Worth a visit at any time of the year. And when it rains, it is in one of the greenhouses. In the spring when the Rododendren bloom, is an absolute must. In the Hill Garden is the tomb of the single British King who is buried outside England.

  • It is worth to go in the gardens on the other side of the street. In addition to interesting Gardens outside are fantastic gardens inside buildings, for example. Garden orchids or Cactus

  • This Botanical Garden offers hundreds of different plants from around the world. I think we can go to several times of the year because the colors should change over the seasons. October no longer offered a lot of flowers, but the leaves still hanging from trees, showed beautiful palettes red and ochre. Greenhouses can enjoy impressive cactus and delicate orchids. The Park also contains the mausoleum of the princes of Hanover-Kings of England. The entry is included in the ticket to visit the Castle-Museum of Herrenhausergarten and the Grosser Garten. Really beautiful.

  • 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.
