This is a very pretty and peaceful place to spend some time. The whole garden is smaller than what I had expected but it's located on a hilly area and arranged with a lot of different levels which almost seem like they are on top of each other. A lot of different kinds of flowers and plants, herbs, a bee... More

the old trees beside very beautiful plants. At autumn time very colorful, it is very relaxing. I guess spring it is also nicer.

We thought this was a beautiful small botanical garden. Many countries are represented. The care taking is immaculate. It is wheel chair accessible, but one could get a workout with the hills.

one of my other favorite places in the spring a must visit to admire the army of rododendrones this is a well established display of botanic splendor since the curators take time to feature very strange and seemingly rare plants from every where possible

I walked from the Sparrenburg to the Botanic Garden in about 20 mins at average pace. It's a lovely corner with a traditional German half-timbered house (Fachwerkhaus) benches and beautiful gardens. I would guess Maytime would be the best time to visit as you would see more rhododendrons / azaleas.
