Let’s admit that we’re all fascinated by windmills! They’re strange yet endearing and there is one located right in the heart of Britzer Garten. Standing tall at 20 meters high and oozing with that classical Dutch feel to it, the Britz Mill is open to the public between the dates of April through to October. There is a guided tour of the mill available for those of you that wish to learn more about this awesome windmill.
There are thousands of pretty flowers found around the Britzer Garten. In the south east corner you will find magnificent tall rhododendrons populating the luscious lawns.
The colourful tulips found in the Tulipan garden offer a pleasant photo opportunity whereas the crocus, daffodils and grape hyacinths found throughout Bitzer’s entirety can easily compliment your picnic.
It is very easy to see how the Britzer Garten managed to be voted amongst the top ten most beautiful gardens in Germany.
There isn’t just a tour of the Britz Mill available within the Britzer Garten. There is also a weekend program aimed at providing a guided tour of the field laboratory. This Botanical and ornithological tour will give you a deeper insight into the garden and is a must for the green fingered out there.
