The Rhododendron-Park Bremen (46 hectares), also known as the Rhododendron-Park und Botanischer Garten Bremen or Botanika im Rhododendron-Park, is a major collection of rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as a substantial botanical garden (3.2 hectares), located at Deliusweg 40, Bremen, Bremen (state), Germany. It is open daily; park admission is free but a fee is charged for Botanika.A visit to Rhododendronpark Bremen represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bremen sightseeing tool to plot your vacation.
The botanical garden dates to 1905 when it was created by businessman Ernst Franz Schütte at a different site (1905 Osterdeich, 3 hectares). This original garden was organized geographically, with plants from the Orient, Mexico, and the Caucasus, as well as collections of crop plants, medicinal herbs, native plants, and poisonous plants. It remained privately held until 1935 when it became city property, and was transferred to its current location within the Rhododendron Park over the next few years. Today's garden was completed in 1949-1950.
The park itself began in 1933 at the initiative of the German Rhododendron Society on former farmland and forest, opening to the public in 1937. Its Botanika facility, described as Germany's largest nature center, opened in 2003. In 2007 ownership of the park was transferred to a nonprofit foundation.
Rhododendronpark Bremen reviews
This park, which is located about 25min away from the Bremen main station, invites you for a nice stroll when the weather is nice. The entry is free and there are beautifully designed park landscapes.... more »
We came on a very busy weekend and it was difficult to find parking. The place was just heaving with visitors to the park. And rightly so, the weather was gorgeous and the rhododendrons were in full..... more »
There are so many cute private spots where one can read or have a picnic. Also a perfect place for runners and dog owners. A big diversity of flowers and other plants and last but not the least one, Rhododendron-Park is not as crowded as Burgerpark.
Absolutely a lovely park. A good place for walking. There is a restaurant in the middle of park that is very good.
