i like best Marburgs (Germany, Hessia) botanical garden up on the hill next to the university (there ist another one in the town itself). walking through it, i got the impression of crossing into different landscapes. i very much liked the way somewhat similar, yet different trees were planted next to each other. that way, the sight is intersting and yet calming. they also got a green house with a little life butterfly exhibition and a big pond with a lot of turtles. i think, it´s somewhat small-scale compared to the above mentioned, but i´m in no position to compare.
