Munich Gardens & Parks: Old Botanical Garden


Munich Gardens & Parks: Old Botanical Garden

The Old Botanical Garden is also located in the city center near the central station and therefore quite suitable for having a break after shopping and sightseeing as well.

Created in the 19th century, this park used to be the botanical garden of Munich.

Due to the air pollution in the city center, however, it became hard to grow plants there and in 1914, many of them were evacuated to the New Botanical Garden next to the Nymphenburg castle in the west of Munich. Therefore, there are hardly any uncommon plants any more nowadays, but it is still quite a nice place for having a rest.
