  • Love this place. The outdoor gardens are well-cared for and plenty of room to walk around and admire the beautiful gardens. The indoor garden is a small fee but well worth it. Highly recommend!  more »

  • This place is amazing! The genuine Thai pagoda is worth the visit alone. I’ve only been in summer I would love to see the place in other seasons!
  • Very nice gardens, we loved taking friends and family from out of the area there. So beautiful I even had my engagement photos taken there.
  • Olbrich Garden is a great place to be! They have an exotic collection of plants in a controlled temperature environment and you get to see many different kinds of plants and birds. The rose garden and Thai garden is pretty good too. Nature-lovers will love this place! Great place to spend your time at. Go during fall to see amazing cherry blossoms and tulips in full bloom.
  • We came here in October and loved the many plants and flowers still blooming! The Thai pavilion is incredible. There are many options for individuals who may not be able to walk long distances, including golf-cart tours and wheelchairs to rent.
  • This garden is gorgeous. You will find horticultural excellence on display here!

Where to stay in Madison

The university and state politics draw a constant stream of visitors to Madison, so you'll find a wide range of accommodations in the city. Numerous hotels circle the campus, and some of these overlook Lake Mendota. Moving onto the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona, you'll find a handful of charming inns and bed and breakfasts, most of which offer panoramic views of the water. Areas south of Lake Monona feature national chain hotels and motels. These sit farther away from the action around campus and the State Capitol Building, but they can also offer water views and quiet settings near some of Madison's many parks.
