Botanischer Garten reviews
Pretty place to be, not very big, but has a variety of flowers.
Thet were "renovating" but still gorgeous. It's spring so loads of flowers. Also loads of benches and places to sit and enjoy the gardens in peace. The walk to get here includes hills but it's nice to see the gardens from different levels.
