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.

Beautiful place to visit especially when the weather is nice. We took lots of great photos. It took a little longer to walk thought the whole garden than we thought. There's plenty 'hidden gems' so I'd say give it 2-3 hours
Very affordable parking, Beautiful scenery and location. I recommend for a family outing or even just a walk. I also recommend visiting Sea Life oceanarium nearby!
