A nice walk in a calm area, with wide variety of colourful flowers and plants. All the plants and trees are labelled and provide information, which will interest those with a botanical background. There is also a nice cafe inside. Very peaceful and aesthetic.

We enjoyed the drinks and food and very gentle people who worked there. Of course it is nicer in the summer time because of the place it is located but even in winter it was lovely and cosy.

Managed by the students in the nearby university. Visiting the pond area with the noisy frogs was a delight! There is another less developed garden sight near to the far uni campus that's well worth seeing too. Go into the greenhouse it should be renamed 'hotbouse'!

A very cozy place for people loving nature and plants particularly. Situated not far from the university and taken care of by students, I believe. A nice place to hide from hot weather, entry free

A must do when in Göttingen! The garden is absolutely gorgeous and only very little people are around. Nothing big enough to spend even half a day here but good for one or two hours.

If you want to relax in the midst of a busy little town this is a place to visit. VERY nice garden, washed with colors of beautiful flowers, lovely trees and interesting greenhouses.

So close to the centre of town, but a lovely place to wander around. I was there in the spring so there was lots to see, and vibrant colours everywhere.

The (old) Botanischer Garten at the corner in Innenstadt is a great place to relax and immerse yourself in nature. There are 2 parts: near the gate are green houses with lots of tropical place, you'll see some mini forests for one green house to another. A place to get some heat in winter. Another part is a big garten:... More

The botanical garden is a very nice, calm place in the (sometimes) crowded city centre. From the Carré shopping mall you'll get there in just 2 minutes. There is no entrance fee, you can simply walk around the gardens for free, bring a blanket and hang around with your friends. On a sunny day this is a very popular activity... More
