It is pre-summer vacation here, and we are always on the lookout for a fun place to go where the kids can run around a lot. One of out favorite places to visit is the botanical garden of the University of Erlangen. The entire garden is open to the public free of charge and they have a nice selection of different types of plants.
My kids are camera-fanatics, so they each get a camera in their hands and click away at all the interesting things they discover. Their favorite creatures to photograph are the frogs and koi swimming in the raised ponds outside of the garden houses.
My favorite corners are those filled with roses, and if you are a rose lover yourself, you will not be disappointed here. The botanical garden spills out into the local palace garden that is surrounded by the university, and you can really spend hours strolling around.
