Part of one of the largest botanic garden complexes in Europe, Berggarten is a sprawling natural world sheltering hundreds of colorful native and exotic plants. Created in 1666, the garden was long used for breeding experiments of various plants not native to the northern climate of Lower Saxony. Though the experiment failed in its attempt to grow rice, it was successful in the cultivation of tobacco and mulberry. The garden now contains several historic conservatories, most of which were built in the 19th century to house one of the biggest collections of palm trees in all of Europe. In 2000, a state-of-the-art greenhouse was opened, designed to display plants normally found in the rainforest. This indoor tropical landscape contains more than just plants, as different species of tropical butterflies and birds have also been introduced and incorporated into the protected environment.

And the tree and book giants are admirable. "Secret" small creeping paths are to be covered, great atmosphere!!
This is a wonderful garden. I think it is better than the big garden(Herrenhäuser). There are a lot of flower and plant species from all around the world. A small lake inside is a good place to photography. If you get a ticket for Herrenhäuser garden, never skip this garden too.
Beautiful botanic garden! In the summer it's probably even more stunning as the outside flora will be alive as well.
