Presentation
With 22.000 types of plants, Berlin’s Botanical Gardens rank among the three most important botanical gardens in the entire world.
Created between 1897 and 1910 according to the plans of the architect Alfred Koerner, the Botanical Gardens’ 43 hectares are a wonderful place to take a stroll.
The Botanical Gardens consist of three areas: the park-like arboretum (collection of woody plants and roses), the exhibition area showcasing plants from around the world in their geo-graphical context and the collection of 1.500 types of plants, which have been systematically categorised. There is also 3.000 square metres large garden with a focus on smelling and touching various kinds of plants for our guests who are visually impaired or who are in wheelchairs.

Fifteen greenhouses are located in a geometrical arrangement on the eastern edge of the park, including a tropical greenhouse built in 1907 which is 25 metres high and 1.700 square metres large – one of the largest in the world and a superb example of 19th century glass and steel architecture.

Located on Königin-Luise-Straße, the Botanical Museum was created on the basis of the for-mer Royal Herbarium. In addition to its comprehensive scientific collection of plants, it is also Europe’s only museum that is purely botanical in nature. Besides the numerous plant species found in the museum, the plants associated with the tombs of the Egyptian Pharaohs can be studied here.

By the way: The Botanical Garden is not only a summer highlight. Even in winter you can discover the flora of Africa, Australia, East Asia, the tropics and the Mediterranean on the season path.
