We visited the Berggarten as it was inclueded in our ticket for the Herrenhauser Garten. Unlike this latter, the Bergarten is more of a botanical garden, less structured, wilder. They have some greenhouses where cactuses and orchids (the biggest collection in Europe!) are exposed.

The Herrenhaeuser garten is lovely and... More

Magical, really. After my visit I felt really relaxed and tranquil. Staff of the garden did great job of collecting all these plants and presenting them in such a way that it looks like an adventure. You just can feel the spirit of this place.

A perfectly-tended botanical garden just across the street from the Grosser Garten. Included in the 8 Euro all-in-one ticket. / Perfektně udržovaná botanická zahrada naproti Grosser Garten. Pouze jeden druh vstupenky - all in one za 8 Euro - platí do obou zahrad i muzea. Pro každou část zvlášť se neprodávají.

One of the most extensive orchids collection that I ever seen, even for me who came from a place famous for orchids. The garden is beautiful and all the flowers are blossoming.

This was the most excellent botanical garden I have seen. Was there early in June and the iris were in full bloom. The orchid house was wonderful and the new succulent garden in the courtyard is beautiful. Very well designed and tended. would love to be closer to see it change during the seasons. What a gem!

The Berggarten is part of the "Gardens of Herrenhausen" and has a botanical garden with several areas like prairie, bog, perennial shrubs and so on. There are some mini lakes/water basins where you can see frogs and dragonflies and there are several greenhouses. One of them containing the famous orchid collection. It is well worth a visit throughout the year.... More

This time we visited the Berggarten, a treasure house of botanic diversity which remain open round the year. It has over 12,000 species of... More

Various different types of plantings/ landscapes invite you to rest , smell or just stroll along. Two greenhoses give shelter from bad weather. One with canarian plant, the other with three climatic themes: hot-dry (desert), warm-dry (subtropic), hot-dry (tropic). The later ones invite to rest an are inhabites by fish & turtles and birds.

This is secondary place if you visit herrenhausen garden, just need about 30 minutes to explore the area. Nothing too interesting except the mausoleum.
