Hamburg Welcome Tour – Hamburg Welcome Portal

The Hamburg Welcome Center invites you in September to a guided tour to the Botanical Special Garden Wandsbek, presented in the English language. Right in the middle of this district in Hamburg you will find an oasis of relaxation. On 1.5 hectares you can find over 1000 different species of plants on the outer side of the area, as well as the greenhouse. From the expert and head of this special garden, we learn exciting connections of Mother Nature, especially those of the plant world. We get to learn about botanical rarities which are not at all expected in the city of Hamburg, such as sequoia, banana shrubs, the handkerchief tree, as well as various types of carnivorous plants. After the termination of our tour, all guests will have the opportunity to enjoy their picnic (brought-along by yourselves) and you can end the afternoon relaxing on the chairs and benches in the park.

We look forward to sharing another part of Hamburg with you!
