The Botanical Garden in Wrocław is one of the quietest places in the city center. If you don’t know how to spend an afternoon, we can truly recommend the Botanical Garden as one of the best things to see in Wrocław. The garden itself is quite large with many plants from around the world. If you like, you can grab a cup of coffee and piece of cake, sit on a bench, and observe nature.
We visit the Botanical Garden in Wrocław regularly, usually several times a year. The following photos are from the last days of May 2020.
Botanical Garden in Wrocław: Basic Information
Unfortunately, the Botanical Garden website is not available in English, but you can always use the Google translator 🙂
The Botanical Garden is open every day (also on holidays and during the weekends):
Monday to Friday between 11:00 and 18:00
Weekends and public holidays between 9.00 and 18.00.
There are two entrances to the garden – one from Sienkewicza Street, and the second one is located a few steps from the Cathedral on Ostrów Tumski (Kanonia Street). This second gate currently closed though.
To get to the garden you must buy a ticket. There are many options to choose from, depending on whether you are going there in a group or alone, and whether you are entitled to a discount (e.g. student discount):
- Single Ticket: 15 PLN

Walking Tour in The Botanical Garden in Wrocław
It is difficult to get lost in the Botanical Garden. Even though there are many paths here, you can easily see where they lead. It is worth going for a walk through alleys full of trees that act as Monuments of Nature, sit by the fountain or small waterfall, or take a walk among the blooming flowers. There is also a greenhouse, a café, toilet and souvenir shop.
During the year, many natural events take place in the Garden, e.g. Bee Day, Lower Silesian Pumpkin Festival, Wrocław Flour Festival or Autumn meeting with birds.
Also, each year the plant of the year is chosen. 2020 is the year of honey plants!
