The month of May sees the Rhododendron Park in Bremen in its full glory. The park is not only one of the most beautiful, but also one of the largest of its kind. The circa 46 hectares of parkland, containing more than 1,000 types of Rhododendron and Azalea bushes, comes into bloom in the month of May. For six weeks long, the blooms are on show, majestically framed by the mighty beech and oak trees, with a magnificent display of colour, from yellow to violet to red.
The botanical garden is the jewel in the crown of the Rhododendron Park. There is a carefully selected collection of over 6,500 different plants, both native and exotic, within the 3,2 hectares of parkland. The plants are categorised into different themes and labelled with explanatory texts: A lexicon to stroll through while you discover and learn.
