  • Lovely place. It really worth to go. The greenhouses and park are great. Better start early to enjoy it all. It is a lot to see and walk. Great to go with kids as has a lot of games and has a pond were you can go in a boat. It has a restaurant, but I would recommend to bring your own food.
  • This is a good botanical garden, but even better park. The number of different floral life is amazing. And as a bonus it is used for concerts and events in summertime. I recommend it. Do not miss the Jazz in Palmengarten concerts in July and August.
