Planten un Blomen

In 1821, a botanist planted a sycamore tree in a park near Dammtor train station. From this tree, a sanctuary for birds and plants evolved and a botanical garden that resembles the current park opened in 1930. This 116-acre inner-city oasis features a grand Japanese garden, a mini-golf course, an outdoor roller-skating and ice-skating rink, trampolines, and water features. The original sycamore tree still stands near an entrance. If you visit on a summer evening, you'll see the Wasserlichtkonzerte, the play of an illuminated fountain set to organ music. Make sure you get to the lake in plenty of time for the nightly show, which begins at 10 pm from May through August and at 9 pm in September.
