    Hamburg's green heart beats between the Congress Center Hamburg and the Millerntor: Planten un Blomen. The traditional park is home to various theme gardens, including the Old Botanical Garden Hamburg and one of the largest Japanese landscaped gardens in Europe.
    Planten un Blomen offers much more than the eponymous "plants and flowers"

    Everything without admission. The park has two large playgrounds and many different seating options. There is also a roller skating / inline skating rink and of course eating and drinking 😉

    The greenhouses of the Botanical Garden of the University of Hamburg were created by the IGA in 1963. They replaced the greenhouses destroyed during the war according to a design by the architect Prof. Bernhard Hermkes. The greenhouses house approximately 2,800 square meters of plants from various climatic zones on earth - from the tropical jungle to the desert. The complex is divided into five areas. In addition to the tropical house, there is a Subtropen-, a cactus and a fern house. Particularly noteworthy is the construction: The glazing is hung on external profiles and the interior is therefore free of load-bearing elements. Both the greenhouses and the neighboring Mediterranean terraces are listed buildings.The Mediterranean terraces were created by the garden architects Plomin, Raderschall and Schulze. Layered slate tiles characterize the structure of the terraces. The dark slate stores the heat of the sun and thus offers ideal conditions for many Mediterranean plants, such as hibiscus, clematis, figs, mammoth leaf and limonene. The resort with its Mediterranean flair is probably the sunniest place in Hamburg.Source:

    Plants and blomes I have in my memory as a retreat from the bustle of the metropolis Hamburg. There is always a shady spot somewhere, and after a round of power-napping you will have energy to go exploring again. I do not have to mention that the park itself is an attraction.

    The garden was also designed by the Japanese landscape architect Yoshikuni Araki and created in 1988. The paths through this Gesamtkunstwerk lead past rocks, watercourses and quiet ponds - and present to the beholder the beauty, balance and tranquility of the garden from changing perspectives.Source:

    Already in 1821, the botanist Johann Georg Christian Lehmann planted the first tree of the Planten un Blomen, which today is the most famous park in Hamburg. Planten un Blomen, in high German, plants and flowers, is in this unique city garden program, because the Planten un Blomen unite on an area of 47 hectares alone 300 rose species, several tropical greenhouses and the largest Japanese garden in Europe.
    A tour through the beautiful park is especially recommended in spring and summer, when everything is in bloom.

    At this point, one of the bastions erected by the Dutch fortress builder Valckenburgh in the 17th century rose, which prevented a capture of the city during the Thirty Years' War. The name is still often immortalized in street names with -wall: Dammtorwall, Gorch-Fock-Wall, Steintorwall, Wallringtunnel and even more. The ramparts also have their name and are the result of the demolition of the fortress walls.

    In the 17th and 18th centuries, a huge rampart with a moat encircled the city in a zigzag-shaped arc.
    Here you can see an artistic replica, embedded in the garden, which is still fittingly called ramparts today.
