Was free the day I went. Not soo big, so takes about an hour. But relaxing and enjoyable. Good escape from the heart of town.

Firstly a complaint, They only take cash. In a modern City that claims to be the financial centre of the EU this seems pre historic. However the gardens are very pleasant and are well laid out. It is a very relaxing place

We were surprised to find this beautiful botanic garden with so many different things to see right in the middle of the city. After walking around and exploring we reached an awesome water playground and dry playground at the end. This was a real highlight...More

It can be crowded on special occasions, but otherwise a good spot to walk and enjoy the nature of all continents in one place with some skyscraper skyline behind. :) It has a nice playground for kiddies and a real train that can transport you...More

It’s a very lovely place to go. There are a lot of places where children can play and a lot of tropical gardens. It’s very beautiful especially the wide ranges of flowers. I would definitely come back here again!

We used a hop on hop off bus. You need to do the short walk from the train station to the old town square. You can go by taxi or bus but I don't know the bus you need to get. The tourist bureau is just outside the train... More

Pamengarten is an all year round attraction as it has hot houses to tour. The grounds will be as per seasonal, so not as nice as spring or high summer.
