“Discover with us one of the most beautiful botanic gardens in the world. Take a stroll in woods and meadows, wander in only a few minutes from Alps to Caucasus, let Far-Eastern plants enchant you and feel the Tropical Rainforest with all your senses …” , – it is a citation from the cover page of the website of Berlin-Dahlem Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum, and it is true totally.
I would like to share my impressions from a visit of the amazing place in Berlin through the Global Botanical Portal. I guess I will divide all my pictures on three messages: about greenhouse, about open part, and about museum. Today I start from collections of tropical and subtropical plants which I saw there.
I am not going to repeat all basic information about history and richness of plant diversity of the garden. It isn’t difficult to find in the web, beginning from the official website, Facebook page and Wikipedia. I have decided to post just my pictures with short comments which you will see below.
So, how is it from outside? 🙂
As I understood the Berlin Botanical Garden has both exposition and collection greenhouses,and a part of them are close for free visiting.
Firstly you fall into the highest greenhouse with big trees, palms and waterfall. Already here you start understanding that it is a “holy place” for botanists 🙂
After that you go through corridors to small greenhouses. Every from them have specific microclimate needed for every certain group of plants. For example, special fern and mosses exposition –
Injectors sometimes turn on unexpectedly 🙂
By the way, corridors and place for rest or enjoying are superbly equipped 🙂
Further you will see a lot of pictures from different collection. Probably, I am not a good botanist, because there I often met plants from families about existence of which even I didn’t know before. The plant diversity of greenhouses of the Berlin Botanical Garden is amazing, wondeful, crazy! I can’t choose optimal word for it 🙂
Of course, I could continue to publish pictures from greenhouses of the Berlin Botanical Garden very long, however I think it is enough to сause your desire to visit the wonderful garden which belongs to category “must see” for all botanists.
