We encountered the garden during our evening jog. It is very small and has a couple of greenhouses that we didnt enter. A few pretty plants but it is more like a rest stop.

My toddler and I stopped here for an hour or so. It was a pleasant, shady oasis. We enjoyed the plants outside and the greenhouses as well.

Well planned botanical garden with extensive species. Spring would be a better time to visit. The greenhouses were in excellent shape. Lots of interesting plants and flowers. Admission was fere.

the opening hours are not great, on a sunday aftternoon in november you can take a walk in the park, but the glas houses are closed. There are signs at almost every plant, but that's it. Not a must-see in Heidelberg

The outside taxonomic gardens may seem a little lackluster in late summer, but the greenhouses are spectacular. Opulent tropical plants and the atmosphere is so soothing. You can walk from downtown, across and along the river as well. Well worth a short visit

I'm sure this is a nice place to have lunch or walk around with friends or colleagues. But as a tourist attraction it's not that special. It was quite small and there was not a whole lot too see (maybe unless you're a plant biologist?)...More

Established in 1593 as the hortus medicus of the university, is used for scientific research, conservation and training. However, for most people it is only a place of relaxation where visitors come to stroll. Some 14000 plant species are on display outdoors and in the...More

You will be disappointed if you go in Winter as you can imagine what left by that time. Only ferns and tree, maybe a few flowers...
