The Palmengarten (palm garden) is a gorgeous botanical garden that changes with the seasons.
Created in 1868, its 22 hectares are covered with lawns, flowers, and bushes. In 14 greenhouses filled with tropical and subtropical plants, every climactic zone is perfectly reproduced, including a lush tropical rainforest; a hot, humid monsoon forest of mangroves; and an arid desert of giant cacti.
Outdoors, Goethe's garden is also worth a visit. It pays tribute to this prince of poets, a great lover of gardens, who wrote an ode to ginkgo. In spring, exquisite roses spread their delicate fragrance in this wonderfully exotic realm.
