Berggarten, Hannover
(4.7/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • Magical, really. After my visit I felt really relaxed and tranquil. Staff of the garden did great job of collecting all these plants and presenting them in such a way that it looks like an adventure. ...  more »
  • Amazing Park-botanical garden. Particularly impressed by the collection of orchids. The great diversity of these marvelous plants that appeared to refer to plants-parasites. But parasites are very beautiful and graceful.

  • I live in Hanover for 5 years now and wonder how it can be that I recently visited this wonderful garden. Whether for a long walk or a bit of history. The garden is a must for every Hanoverians. It feels just like in the middle of nature - in the middle of the city.

  • 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.
