Exploring the Botanical Garden in Innsbruck
Botanical Garden of Innsbruck
While some places in Innsbruck are
expensive to visit, the Botanical Garden of Innsbruck is not one of them.
Indeed the park surrounding the huge greenhouses, the signature features of the
gardens, is open all year round at no charge. If you visit on a Tuesday or
Thursday afternoon between 1pm and 5pm you can pay just a couple of Euros to
gain access to the tropical greenhouses. It’s worth doing, because it completes
the experience the Botanical Garden has to share with you.
It’s hard to believe the history of the
Botanical Garden goes as far back as 1793, although you’d have to go back a
little over a century to 1906 to find it situated where it is now. There are
several garden areas to visit while you’re there, but make sure you don’t miss
the fragrance and touch garden. This really is an assault on the senses, and
while everyone can appreciate it, it’s particularly suitable for disabled
you’ll find the cactus house, the succulent house and even an orchid house, so
if you’ve never had much luck growing orchids you can see what they’re supposed
to look like here. For anyone with an appreciation of the plant world, the
Botanical Garden in Innsbruck is definitely the place to be. Learn more on the Botanical Garden of Innsbruck here.
