If you wanna go for a walk and are interested in flowers, plants, trees, dessert… at least nature, check out the Botanical Garden in Hamburg. It’s awesome!
Even the last drizzly weekend I was there and was really impressed again. So many different flowers. Have a look in the fragrance-tactile-garden – there I found a flower that smells like chocolate. Hilarious! Small labels and big “try-it-yourself” walls inform you about plants and their smell, touch and use. Discover the Botanical Garden, through all the different theme gardens from “plants of the bible” to “evolution of the rose” through all the continents.
The blue futuristic Loki-Schmidt-Building is a museum for economic plants encouraged by the ZEIT foundation.
One of my favorite places is the desert garden with glass pyramids (which was a present of United Arab Emirates).
Special programs: The ‘Green School’ (A joint effort by the state institute of teacher training and school development and the faculty of biology of the University of Hamburg) hand out indoor plants and test plants for cytology, as well also carnivorous plants, succulents, etc. for learning.
Relaxing excursion: The Palme – the palm, is an outside café for some chilled coffee, ice cream and lovely cake. Also you’ll get sausages and potato salad there for absolutely affordable prices. (opens from April to October at 11:00 to 19:00)
Music excursion: Every first Thursday in the month there is a concert for free!
