Situated overlooking Innsbruck, I found the University's Botanical Garden (one of 2000 worldwide) was a steep uphill walk, about 18-20 minutes away from the city centre. Expect to see a lot of green in a confined settling (see photos). As mentioned elsewhere, a small admission...More

It was just okay. Just somewhere if you wanted a walk in a park. Perhaps we are too use to much larger and grander botanical gardens.

A really nice small botanical garden. Everything well kept, lots in flower (exceeded our expectations for mid July, considering that they have a lot of alpines, which tend to be spring bloomers). We concentrated on the Alpine house and bed; we didn't go in the...More
