In Full Bloom

As the temperature reaches into the 60s (15c), the Munich Botanical Gardens springs to life. Situated in the Northwest end of Munich, the gardens are world famous with more than 14,000 plant types. Spread across more than 4,500 square meters and with comprehensive greenhouses, the gardens show plants from damp tropical areas, cool mountain forests, and arid desserts. The Gardens are also attached to the Schloss Nymphenburger castle, which is part of the reason it receives more than 400,000 visitors per year.
