With a little imagination, your trip to the botanical garden will be a real experience. These botanical garden games are fun for adults and children.
Botanical gardens, aroma gardens, rose gardens or parks: I have lived in the city for a long time, but I still love the green oases like no other place in the city. In summer, I meet my friends on the meadows to relax and barbecue. And in winter, the snow enchants the parks and gardens into glittering white fairytale landscapes.
I’ve been fascinated by the world of botany since I was a little girl – I’m also pretty good at identifying plants. I love flowers, collect wild garlic in spring and mushrooms in summer and autumn. My friends know this, of course, and surprised me one day with a special trip into nature – in the middle of the city.
Most men are not big flower fans: this is also true for my best friend. There is no flowering plant in his flat and he would never buy a bouquet of flowers for himself. That’s why I was quite surprised that he was the driving force behind the trip to the botanical garden. He doesn’t care much about flowers, but he finds biology and interesting facts about special plants exciting.
As I always teased him about not being able to tell a turnip from a rose, now came his revenge: he had prepared a quiz for me to test how much I (didn’t) know. It was so much fun that we now always thought up little tasks, questions or knowledge tests before our excursions – usually spontaneously on the way there in the underground.

Test your knowledge! Who is the biggest plant nerd, who is the most knowledgeable biologist? The best way to find out is to take a quiz. During the excursion, ask each other questions to find out how knowledgeable you are about plants and biology. Either one of you takes on the role of quiz master or each of you contributes a question in turn. The perfect quiz has questions that match your level of knowledge: so ideally you should think of a few questions before visiting the botanical garden on the bus, underground or at home. The knowledge test is even more fun if you form teams and puzzle together.
My tip: Lighten up your quiz with a few guessing questions or bets. Here I have put together a few suggestions for you, you can also find them with the answers in the PDF for download!:
With this botanical garden games you explore the botanical garden in a different way than usual: follow the tasks and questions of a rally for completely new perspectives! The botanical garden is ideal for a playful exploration. Through scents, colours and the sounds of bees and birds, Germany’s most beautiful gardens offer something for all the senses. Since enjoying and relaxing must not be neglected for us, this probably became our least extensive rally.
As always, the rally is much more fun in a team! Remember to take your smartphone with you to record completed tasks with a photo. After the rally, you can compare your discoveries with each other.
