The greenhouses remain closed for visitors until further notice.


Welcome to the Botanical Garden of Ulm University

The Botanical Garden of Ulm University is a scientific institution with the primary objective of fulfilling tasks in research and teaching. Other responsibilities are the development and maintenance of documented scientific plant collections, which are then used for different purposes (teaching, research, public relations).

At the same time the garden is an important link between the university und the public, e.g. with projects in cooperation with the ZaWiW, or in the Green Classroom where school kids can learn about the flora and fauna in their immediate environment.

We kindly invite you to discover the fascinating, beautiful plants in our garden and are looking forward to your visit.


Please don't hesitate to contact us if you're interested in guided tours in english through the greenhouses or the outside area.
