“Plants you can only dream of”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

There are plants at the Palmengartens that look like they come out of a fairy tale. If it exists, I think it is here! Beautiful park walks indoor and outdoor areas. Play areas for children, boat area.

“The Cactus display is amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

A lovely botanical garden with a good variety of displays. While mid September isn't the best time to look for blooms, we thought the cactus display was incredible, especially in this location. The tortes in the cafe were to die for and the site of people feeding bread to enormous carp by hand was very entertaining ( I wouldn't do it though).

“Hot and sticky”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

The weather was even hotter and stickier than the tropical houses, but the grassy areas are a good place to find shade. Enjoyed coffee and cake in the cafe and the presentation about spices was very interesting and attractively displayed. Interesting live music performance.

“Beautiful and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2012

Very calm and beautiful park in the city, I could see plenty of young and older people alike resting and enjoying the sun, the plants and the water. Very peaceful, will return whenever possible.

“Nature and tranquility”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

It is a good closed place of nature inside the city and calm for its paid entrance (5€/person). It was a hot day and we got some relief under the trees, I even slept at Ruhewiese (tranquility area) on a lounger.
