Imagine a spot in the heart of the city where you can wander around for hours and completely lose yourself in the beauty of mother nature. The Botanical Garden for me has always been such a place, where majestic old trees crown one of the most impressive collections of flora in the whole world – I’ve been coming here since my childhood, every once in a while to enjoy a stroll and fall in love all over again with the wonders of the beautiful plants, flowers and trees.
You can come here throughout the year, but the most recommendable times are summer and spring, when everything is in bloom and the scent of flowers provide a feeling of being all alone in this world. On sunny days, you might even spot some of the turtles living there, and don’t miss the impressive greenhouses full of exotic plants from all over the world. Take a break from the hectic city life and dive into Berlin’s green lung.
