Nice for a walk in a green park but nothing special to see. Some parts were being repaired and closed off by a fence so city is trying to keep it up. But in a short visit. spend more time in the old city.

when i think of a botanischer garten i think of a place with a lot of different plants, flowers, signs naer to them. here there is just a run-down park with a pond and alot of grass that needs mowing.

This garden belongs to the not so rare gardens in European cities, which belongs to the University, and centrally located. Some of them, e.g. in Vienna (right across the fence from Belvedere) are absolute beauty, especially spring time. This one is a small one, similar...More
