We are sure to visit every botanical garden we can when travelling. While I do enjoy a lovely garden, Louise is “obsessed.” The Accès Montréal card is offered to residents of the island of Montréal, and as members, we get free access to the Montreal Botanical Garden. Needless to say, we visit it quite often, and I am very happy to see it made the list of the world’s best botanical gardens.
TIP: the Montreal Botanical Gardens’ winter path is open daily from 7:30 am to 5 pm from December to May for everyone. Access is free to the site, and no reservations are required.
I wanted to research and develop a list of some of the best botanical gardens in the world based on their historical significance, size, diversity of plant collections, and overall beauty.
These 15 best botanical gardens have earned their reputation through their commitment to horticultural excellence, conservation efforts, and providing visitors with an immersive and educational experience. Please note that this list is subjective, and many other exceptional botanical gardens exist worldwide.
Here are my 15 renowned best botanical gardens.
I was amazed to discover that I have been to nine of them. (See *) Each garden’s website provides detailed information about visiting hours, admission fees, events, and additional features to help you plan your visit accordingly:
