The Most Beautiful Garden in Europe

If you love my hub related beautiful places around the world. You will find again other places which is really beautiful and amazing. This time I’ll write about flower garden. If a week ago I wrote about “The benefit of gardening for health”. But I am back with travel review. This is different review, because I want to write about flower garden. Before I start the review about garden, better to know for us the reason why we visit the flower garden:

  • Flower garden is very important as the lung of the city. It has function to absorbed carbon dioxide and release oxygen. It makes the air cleaner. To reduce pollution and fight the global warming.
  • Flower garden is the alternative place for vocation. We can take all the family to enjoy many flowers while breathing fresh air.
  • In the flower garden or Botanical garden we can learn of the various types of plants and flower. I thought the kids will love kind of this vocation.
  • Admire god's creation and see the power of God makes the flower so beautiful, the trees growing big and tall. We can be grateful for such a beautiful gift from God. I hope this vocation could increase the spirituality side.
  • We can find the rare trees and flowers, which we never seen these before. All the plants gathered in this place to be protected and preserved so these all do not become extinct.
  • Can calm the mind (release stress) and makes your eyes are always fresh by enjoying the colorful flowers, tree and the green of grass.
  • We can also see the amazing building in the green location. Please take a look in all the pictures below.

I’ll take you traveling to see the beautiful of flower garden in Europe. Personally these gardens are the most beautiful flower garden in Europe. If you love traveling and have a plan to visit Europe, you can put all garden information in your list. If you like something green, the colorful of flower and pond with clear water, these are the best place for you. You can spend the time all day long over there, because these gardens are well maintained. You can reschedule your plan if you want to visit these gardens. So you can spend more time over there. Each place is amazing and special in its own way.  Now let us see the five most beautiful gardens in Europe.

Kew Royal Botanical Gardens, London

Key Royal Botanical Garden is located about 10 miles from central London. As the UNESCO World Heritage site, this gardens are probably the best and the famous botanical garden in the world. There are many interesting buildings over there. Including a Royal Palace, six magnificent glasshouses, the Great Pagoda designed by William Chambers. There are plants (30,000 types of plants) and trees from all over the world outside in 121 hectares of stunning vistas.. Founded in 1759, Key Royal Botanical Garden as the beautiful, historically fascinating garden in London. This garden brought the features elements which show the art of garden s from the 18th to the 20th century (nearly 250 years). I heard that Kew's garden is also used for summer concert. I thought from this place we can see the beautiful landscape beside the river Thames between Richmond and Kew. This garden is open every day, excluding Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Royal Botanical Garden Edinburgh, Scotland

Royal Botanical Garden is well known as the center for the study of plants. This place founded in 1670. Almost 36,000 plants are grown at the Edinburg Botanical garden. Nearly 17,000 different species come from all over the world. The most interesting from this place is you can find more than 100,000 books botanical library. The people from all over the world come to Scotland to see them. There is a Palm-house over there which re-open to public in March 19, 2005. As a good point for the new "Windows on the World" experience. We can walk along the Glasshouse with the guideline of interactive audio. The interactive audio gave us information o very plant describe by the botanic experts. Although Botanic garden as the place for scientist activities for both tourist and locals. Royal Botanic garden Edinburgh is a popular place to go for a walk, especially for young families. I heard that the entrance to botanic garden is free, although we have to pay small entry charge for the Glasshouse. I thought this still affordable price for “science” vocation. We can find other facilities like shop, snack bar open in summer, Inverleith House for exhibition and lectures. We can also see Edinburg castle from the terrace café nearby this garden.

Generalife Gardens, Granada (Spain)

Do not ever miss this place if you go to Spain. This is a very beautiful place situated on the plateau. The location chosen was the Cerro del Sol, the fertile area to the east of the Alhambra. Here like a paradise on earth. Original design came from to the late 13th century when Granada was already the most beautiful city in Al Andalus. It was constructed as a small, simple yet intimate summer palace surrounded by the shady garden. Generalife as know as the Garden of Architect. I heard many people said that Generalife is the finest garden in the whole of Europe. All gardens offer new color and a different perspective with the changing seasons and this is particularly true in the Generalife. Evening visits are very enjoyable. It brings the delights of the garden to a wider public. Previously, in 13th century only filled with gardens and green meadows. During the period of time it changed into a very beautiful place filled with roses and lilies, and also a long pond or water channel. On the right side of generalife garden, there is a building was built in 1952. It called Manuel Falla auditorium. There are various annual festival held here, like ballet and dance. But the most interesting is we can enjoy the sightseeing, smell of the flowers, and the sound of water. Other plants around the generalife garden are beans, seeds and aromatic herbs like cumin and basil, as well as vegetables and fruits. A traditional Spain garden which compatible with the Spanish climate of sun and heat.

Nymphenburg Palace gardens, Munich

These are beautiful combination between palace and garden. You can see the fascinating garden if you go to Munich. It is about twenty minutes tram ride from the city center to get the palace. We can easily go there by car or bus 41.  This is very beautiful place to spend the time in the morning and appreciate the beauty of nature. See the royal gardens of the 17th century.  It is very outstanding place to walking around, starting as a small garden into the big garden. What can we see over there? There are also statues of the Greeks, Gods and also a large pond. Nympenburg Palace is an outstanding example of baroque architecture. This is one of the best in Europe. This place was built in 1664, by famous architect for almost 60 years. Right now, we can see beautiful landscape garden. It is pleasant and relaxing especially from spring to autumn. There are a couple of famous Pavillions in the garden, so you should not miss this. One of the favorite by many people is Amalienburg, a Cuvillies masterpiece.

Monet’s garden, French

This garden was built from 1883 to 1926 in the Valley of the River Epte by Claude Monet. Do you know Monet? He is one of the world’s best artists. I love an art and Monet is the leader of impressionist painter, he is my favorite too. Monet’s garden is the colorful garden connected to the Giverny village. This garden is close to the residence of Claude Monet. It makes this garden more beautiful. There are beautiful flowers and colorful pool which also makes the atmosphere calm and peaceful. The sights and sounds of this place are great. I believe many visitors who go there will have unforgettable memories in their life. This garden as the subject of Monet’s painting and also have special place to the many artists and photographers. We can see the color harmony and contrast given by Giverny. The beautiful of this garden came from Monet's characteristic pink house with green shutters and festooned with roses. Like in painting, we can see bees and butterfly are flying around the garden, willows and water-lilies still appears to await the dazzling eye. The most attraction is water-lily ponds with their wonderful play of light and shadow like a master of painting.

Keukenhof Garden, Netherlands

I want to say thank you for "Wanderlust" he is one of my friend in HP, He reminds me about this garden. Keukenhof is the world's famous flower garden. This garden is located in the city of Lisse in the southwest of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Keukenhof flower garden is open annually from April 19 until May 21. To achieve the Keukenhof can take the train from the Haarlem railway station, Schiphol or Leiden. Right now, Keukenhof garden is opened as the International Flower Garden.

The area with the wide around  32 hectares was used to plant different kinds of vegetables, medicinal plants, herbs and spices are also ingredients to cook food for the royal family. Why this garden called Keukenhof? Keuken means kitchen in Dutch or “Kitchen Garden”. 

We can see many beautiful flowers everywhere. But the most flowers are Tulip. This tulips garden is not just the biggest in Netherland, but also the biggest in the world. We can see different kinds of tulips, such as Single Early, Double Early, Kaufmaniana, Fosteriana, Triumph, Darwin Hybrid, Greigii, Single Late, Double Late, Lily-flowered Tulip, Fringed Group, Viridiflora, and Rembrandt. All the flowers were arranged in a very interesting composition, like: white, yellow, orange, red, orange, pink, purple ..., really refreshing and pampering eyes. It’s like being in a "rainbow country" 

There are five pavilions over there. Each pavilions has name king and queen of Netherlands, such as: Oranje Nassau Pavilion, Wilhelmina Pavilion, Juliana Pavilion, Beatrix Pavilion and Willem Alexander Pavilion. Sometimes we can see an attraction like Radost Theatergroep who presenting Klompen dance and Volk dance.

prasetio30 (author) from malang-indonesia on October 06, 2010:

Thanks, attemptedhumour for dropping by and give special comment. Why I said so, because you add a good view between between Botanic garden and Botanical garden. But personally this is not a matter for me. The most important thing is how we can learn and appreciate all the plants inside this garden. I never heard about a world renowned "garden" in Melbourne. But I'll find out more about this garden. Of course I am glad to visit this garden someday. Aussies still beautiful for me. God bless you.

Prasetio

attemptedhumour from Australia on October 05, 2010:

Another beautiful hub. Monet's series of paintings also demonstrates how our eyesight changes as we age. There is also a debate about whether one should say Botanic gardens rather than Botanical. One fellow on the radio gets very uppity about it so don't upset me or i'll tell him. Melbourne also has a world renowned 'gardens' (playing safe there) so one day you must come and visit us Aussies. Cheers mate!

Wow! Imagine the man-hours it takes to keep up gardens of these sizes. The pictures are just stunning. My favorite has to be the picture with the purple wisteria. I love wisterias; the flowers hang like clusters of grape. The pictures of the tulips come in as my second favorites.
