Traveling nurtures the soul. Equally I believe that plants nurture the soul. So why not combining both passions? That’s what I had in mind when I traveled to the Domotex fair in Hannover, Germany, last weekend. I will tell you more about the Domotex fair soon. But first things first. You know me. Thanks to the fabulous organization by the fair and above all Holly of Decor8, we got to discover Hannover a little bit. One of our stops was the local botanical garden at the Herrenhäuser Gärten. And yes, I was absolutely in my element right there and then. Happy Igor in an urban jungle!

The botanical garden in Hannover, Germany, is open year round. It is part of the beautiful Herrenhäuser Gärten area featuring vast outdoor gardens and parks. The botanical garden itself features both, an external gardens and several greenhouses. Due to the season (and a frosty wind), I focused on the greenhouses only this time. Unfortunately, one of the greenhouses with tropical plants was closed due to an upcoming butterfly exhibition. Still I enjoyed a few other greenhouses with huge cacti and succulents, lush orchids, and thriving plants from the Canary Islands.

Speaking of orchids: The botanical garden in Hannover features one of the largest orchid exhibition in all of Europe. When we talk about orchids, forget the common Phalaenopsis orchids that we see in every other supermarket. We talk about beautiful varieties with large and tiny flowers, hanging, growing in the midst of tropical palms, colorful, subtle. It was a real pleasure to have a closer look. No wonder this location is popular for wedding photo shoots (one was happening right then).

If you ever find yourself in Hannover, Germany, I warmly recommend a visit to the Herrenhäuser Gärten (it must be marvelous in summer) and to the botanical garden in particular. As a plant lover you will find excitement and serenity at the same time. I hope you enjoyed the little green tour!

    It’s always nice to do tours in botanical gardens and your photos are stunning. Really nice done! I just went to our Masoala Hall in the Zoo of Zurich. A very nice rain forest with amazing plants and trees.
    You should try that one when you are around.

      Noted! I went to the famous Succulents Collection in Zurich a few years ago – very nice! I blogged about it too. You should go there if you haven’t done it so far!
