Berggarten

Marvel at the acclaimed orchid collection and see the elegant plots of plants from across the world in this particularly enchanting botanical garden.

The Berggarten is a picturesque and serene landscape garden with more than 12,000 species of plants. It is part of the vast Herrenhäuser Gärten, which contains a castle and many other delightful garden sections. Make your way through the botanical garden to inspect the many intriguing flowers and plants on display.

Marvel at the excellent organization of the different plants. Sections include areas dedicated to bogs, prairie and other grass and floral habitats. Relax in the quiet green space and look for frogs and dragonflies. Red squirrels are often seen playing in the gardens. Enter the greenhouses to see some of the more tropical plants.

Come at different times of year for the variations in the appearances of the plants. Admire the remarkable collection of orchids, among the largest and most acclaimed of its kind in Europe. Rows of cacti and plants from the Canary Islands decorate the glass houses alongside fish, birds and turtles. Inspect colorful plants, including aster, salvia and African violet species. The Schmuckhof is a jewel garden of colorful annuals from all parts of the world.

Note that the name of the site is German for Mountain Garden. The area includes among the oldest gardens in the country, dating back to the early 1700s. Visit its adjacent grounds, which count among them the Great Garden, the George Garden and the Welfen Garden.

The gardens remain open daily year-round from morning until late afternoon. Purchase a ticket for the Berggarten alone or a combined ticket granting entrance to all of the gardens in this large complex for a single fee. Discounts are offered for families, children and students.

The Berggarten is in the northwestern part of Hannover, just north of the Great Garden. Ride the U-Bahn public transportation system from the Old Town district to get here in about 15 minutes. If you drive, pay a fee to leave your car in the main parking lot. Go to other sights in the area, such as the Leibniz University of Hannover and the Welfen Mausoleum, behind whose gates are the burial sites of numerous members of German royalty.
