Hamburg is a particularly leafy city, with plenty of parklands lining the canals and waterways. One of the most popular and best loved parks is the Planten un Blomen Park in the heart of the city.
The park preserves Hamburg’s old botanic garden, along with the largest Japanese garden in Europe, a Japanese teahouse, tropical plant house and skating rink.
Children are specially well catered for at the Planten un Blomen Park, with playgrounds, theater, pony rides, miniature golf and water games. There’s a program of entertainment in summer, with clowns, magicians and acrobats.
Visitors of all ages will love the choreographed music and light shows that bring the park alive on warm summer nights.
The Planten un Blomen Park runs west from the Kennedy and Lombards bridges.
There are several metro stations rimming the perimeter, including Stephansplatz nearest the bridge.
