  • Our previous visit to the Botanical Garden was in September 2017 and needless to say it looks very different in December. However there is still a lot of interest in the wide range of plants it...

  • Maybe a tad overrated as some state here, but still a nice place to stay. We did not take the cable car, just did a walk in the garden and had a drink on the terrace.

  • In the botanic gardens, you get some spectacular views over the city. In terms of blossoms, I‘d say the check board flowers in pink and green are the highlight of the place - I guess due to the general heat, having too many flowers is simply not doable. You do get some walkways with cacti, a lot of green plants and trees and generally a nice walkway, simply going further down the hill in nice scenery.
  • Come here if you have nothing else to do in the city and want to kill some time. Otherwise, don't feel to sorry if you miss it. Must admit, I was expecting a bit more colorful flowers. It should have been either free entry or max of 2€... Best part is the cacti section.
