Planten un Blomen

We went to one of the many parks in Hamburg today, and despite this one having a strange name, it was really interesting, with a mix of very different areas:

We went in a tropical hothouse – not the best choice when the temperature outside was above 30C, but fascinating nevertheless:

Next was a Japanese Garden – apparently the largest in Europe:

Then it was time for a beer and a plate of chips (with mayonnaise), then the Apothecary Garden, divided into sections by the plants uses:

Then came some nice water gardens:

And just as we were passing, an enormous multi-jet waterfall started; the spray downwind was very welcome to cool us down!

Our next stop was an excellent Rose Garden

And finally, a walk around a different lake:

We got home just before the thunderstorms started, so excellent timing!
