Garden
Make sure your camera is fully charged for your visit of Ruhr-Universität Bochum Botanischer Garten, 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.

  • Wonderful botanic garden at brutalist Ruhr University. Don't miss out on the chinese garden. It's magical.
  • Beautiful botanical garden, has greenhouses with succulents and tropical plants
  • Very nice and well-kept facility, where you can find pretty much all plants in the world. Some areas are also designed so that you can look at plants from different periods of prehistory in chronological order. There are also abundant great photo opportunities.
