While on the way to the Alps, I asked my IG-friend @greenfingers.munich if she had some tips for gardens to visit in and around Munich. She told me to go to the botanic garden, that is not really in the centre, but a bit outside the rumourous part of town. Well, she was so right. This garden is impressive. We almost stayed a whole day.
Come walk with me in the Botanical Garden of Munich… 💚
It is a true treat; one of the most important botanical gardens in the world. Take your time because this Eden is situated on about 21 hectares (52 acres) and houses approximately 16.000 plants that grow in several garden types and a few glass houses. The garden has been created in 1914 when the botanical garden in the city centre became too small. It now fills a ‘corner’ on the large estate of Schloss Nymphenburg.
I have been binge posting on Instagram, because this garden is amazing, inspiring, charming, surprising, diverse, smashing. And so on. I 💚 Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg.
