The Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg (21.20 hectares) is a botanical garden and arboretum located at Menzinger Str. 65, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is open daily, except on 24 and 31 December; an admission fee is charged.
Munich's first botanical garden, now called the "old botanical garden", was established in 1809 to designs by Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell near Karlsplatz, where its remains are still visible. The old botanical garden was replaced by a new garden created next to the Nymphenburg Palace Park in 1912-1913 and officially opened on 10 May 1914. The garden was designed by Peter Holfelder (1878-1936) who worked closely with Walter Kupper (1874 - 1953) and Leonhard Dillis (1871 - 1946). Today the garden cultivates about 19.600 species and subspecies on approximately 18 hectares. Its mission is to provide a beautiful and restful environment as well as educate the public about plants and nature more broadly. Major collections include an alpine garden, an arboretum, rose collections, and a so-called 'systematic garden' in which plants are arranged by taxonomic families.

Nice gatden to visit if you were already at the Nymphaes palace. I can't say that you would have missed out if you hadn't gone. To be fair, my family and I seem to have visited at the wrong time (May). The roses were not in bloom and the Iris' were starting to wilt. There were areas of the garden that were not well groomed. I have definitely been to more well-kept botanical gardens and public gardens than this one. They could use improvement in the maintenance of the garden.

Huge and Beautiful garden with lots of different flowers. Best place to be relaxed and enjoy the nature in Munich. The entrance is 5 euro per person. There is also a restaurant inside where you can enjoy a lunch or a drink.

The botanical garden is a joy in winter. You can drink a little green. Some houses have a bank to sit on and you are able to visit the turtles. Their mediterranian house is smelling wonderfully, heavy and sweet. Also, the butterfly exhibition is nice. A must for every artist.

Visited in April, lots of flowers, the place smells incredibly, lots of insects and birds, there's a cafe, I think they sell ice cream, it costs 4 Euro and 50. Worth every single penny.

really amazing place. lots of people doing photography and art. sadly the green houses were rebuilt when i was there. still amazing. the cafe has a little bit steep prices but it's Munich... 2 cakes two drinks over 20 euros... the place is big you could probably spend a day there if you're interested in macros. if you bring nuts you'll be the master of the squirrels

Frankly a steal for the entry price, literally thousands of species of plants here, ranging from pond lilies to various shrubs and trees. If you're into this sort of thing, prepare to spend all day here. If you're not, prepare to still be amazed at the subtle differences between some species and the wide variety of offerings here.

Flower displays were beautiful if not slightly overgrown. Several greenhouses were closed for cleaning on the day we arrived but the cafe was very nice with great views of the garden.

A great place to visit. You can make an annual pass in case you want to go and read and have a little peace in nature, surrounded by all kinds of plants
