Botanical Gardens Munich
DescriptionOne of the most important Botanical Gardens in the world is situated in Munich’s leafy suburb of Nymphenburg. Here, the Botanischer Garten in Munich provides its visitors with hours of sheer joy. However, more than that, it is also an educational and vocational training institution and part of the city’s university which aims to preserve rare European plants and bees.
Elegantly crafted glass houses are the setting for succulents, giant cacti, carnivore, exotic bulbs and tubers as well as more than 2,000 species of orchids.
Each year in May, a spectacular collection of Alpines bursts into bloom while the gardens of the Schmuckhof - literally translated as the jewels in the yard - delight the garden enthusiast during the entire year. The dry stone walls nearby are covered with mosses and dwarf shrubs and a remarkable collection of exotic herbs, spices, edible grains and healing plants have all been arranged in the form of an old fashioned symmetrically styled apothecary garden.
