Well planned botanical garden with extensive species. Spring would be a better time to visit. The greenhouses were in excellent shape. Lots of interesting plants and flowers. Admission was fere.

To call this a botanical garden is a real stretch. It was overgrown, plants needed watering, deadheading, and someone with even the slightest green thumb. Very disappointing. We saw only 2 people working there and they were stuggling to get a tree out of a...More

the opening hours are not great, on a sunday aftternoon in november you can take a walk in the park, but the glas houses are closed. There are signs at almost every plant, but that's it. Not a must-see in Heidelberg

The outside taxonomic gardens may seem a little lackluster in late summer, but the greenhouses are spectacular. Opulent tropical plants and the atmosphere is so soothing. You can walk from downtown, across and along the river as well. Well worth a short visit

I'm sure this is a nice place to have lunch or walk around with friends or colleagues. But as a tourist attraction it's not that special. It was quite small and there was not a whole lot too see (maybe unless you're a plant biologist?)...More

Established in 1593 as the hortus medicus of the university, is used for scientific research, conservation and training. However, for most people it is only a place of relaxation where visitors come to stroll. Some 14000 plant species are on display outdoors and in the...More

Pretty average as University botanical garden go, but still worth a visit. It's a little short of individual species for most interested plant enthusiasts. There are hugh greenhouses. Also quite nice for a quiet pause in the sun

If you are visiting the University Medical Center in Heidelberg you could easily take a walk through the botanical garden, as it occupies a quiet and pleasant wooded area on the campus, just to the right of the entrance to building 410, the Medizinische Klinik....More
