Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Bochum

(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Make sure your camera is fully charged for your visit of Ruhr-Universität Bochum, a sprawling nature lover's paradise covering an area of more than 13 hectares (32 acres). The garden was founded in 1968 and has been continuously expanded and improved. Opened to the public in 1971, the garden now includes tropical, alpine, desert, and savannah houses, as well as a large Chinese garden laid out in a southern Chinese style. Set aside plenty of time to explore the garden's fenced outdoor areas, where plants grow organized into geobotanical regions, such as forests, coasts, meadows, prairies, and marshes. The garden's greenhouses shelter hundreds of species of tropical, subtropical, and alpine plants.

  • I unfortunately rarely come here, but if, then I'm excited again and again on the new. A beautiful trip through the Botany, a Creek and the whole beautiful flowers, plants and trees are not enough who: the Chinese garden. In short, no matter whether alone or with partners, here feel. And who takes his camera has countless motifs. Very good for macros or long term exposure at the Creek and waterfall. Only to recommend :-)

  • An unexpected godsend. Quiet, comfortable, good place for walks. Entrance is free of charge. For a long time there, however, not walk-garden is very small.

  • The Botanical Garden at the Ruhr-University is a beautiful area with many plants from different countries. The Japanese part of the garden is particularly successful.
