A beautiful park full of fascinating, rare flowers and trees, some of the latter huge and ancient. In addition, which is a special treat in winter (which sadly lasts about 10 months of the year in Germany), you can visit the tropical greenhouse full of exotic plants you don't usually get to see in this freezing climate, including the gigantic...

The botanical garden is a pretty place in Bonn! With a big collection of different plants and flowers. The 'Glashaus' is spectacular. :)

The Botanic Gardens are part of the Bonn University and are one of the most beautiful and prestigious gardens in Germany. Top attraction is the Amorphophallus titanum, a plant coming from Southeast Asia and blooming only every 10 years. Guided tour is recommended.

It is built around the baroque castle of Poppelsdorf, beautiful garden with old trees, and biologically interesting.

Highly recommend a stroll around with an ice-cream from the corner Eis store, quite a gorgeous spot in central Bonn.

Absolutely a must if you come to Bonn ! Located close to the Poppelsdorf Castle. Beautiful flowers, landscape gardening, old trees, Mammut - Gingko Biloba, a lovely glasshouse with the Titan plant. You can stroll around, lots of benches to take a rest and enjoy the lovely surroundings. On Sundays you may have luck and enjoy a live jazz concert

I took the opportunity of an early arrival at conference to scoot down to the Poppelsdorf Palace and the Botanical Garden behind it. It was a beautiful day and lovely to wander among the collection of interesting plants for a couple of hours. It would have been nice to also be able to get into the glasshouses, but a glance...
