berlin :: botanischer garten

15 August 2014

Another tip from Alix was to see the beautiful Botanischer Garten, a botanical garden that boasts over 22,000 different types of plants over 43 hectares of land.

It was a scorcher of a day, but with intermittent shade we made our way through nearly the entirety of the garden, and it was such a gorgeous walk.

The bridge in the greenery at the beginning reminded me of a Monet painting, and the sheer colour of the flowers we saw were astounding. Nature is quite something.

We couldn't quite survive the heat inside the greenhouses although we did have a quick look in a couple, but the shady areas of the forest-y paths were so peaceful and picturesque. Everything looks so expertly tended to and yet not man-made or too groomed, which I don't particularly enjoy.

It was the nicest way to relax during the afternoon, and as a bonus, we found a delicious gelateria on the way there from the station - highly recommended!

  2. Beautiful Miho and sounds like a wonderful place. If only they'd send us to that side of the world!

  3. I love your pictures, Miho! I feel most at peace when I'm in botanical gardens, I think. Love how you can wander across patches that seem almost wild and forested, like those gorgeous trees towards the end of the post (firs?...) but then you have the very regimented herb gardens and tree-lined avenues too. Can't wait to see the rest of the photos from this trip, and from Italy too! x

  4. Completely stunning! Your photography is GORGEOUS, I love the second from the top reminds me of Pride and Prejudice haha. I also love the picture of you teehee you're beautiful!


Thank you for visiting and commenting! I'd love to hear from you.
