Welcome to the Botanical Garden

The Botanical Garden of the University of Tübingen is a central facility of the university and is used for teaching and research.


However, the Botanical Garden also offers the public an opportunity to explore the unique diversity of plants from different regions of the world, or simply relax in beautiful surroundings.


In addition to the many special plant collections and representations of natural habitats, the Botanical Garden offers an interesting program program with monthly public lectures, guided tours and exhibitions. Educational, exciting and fun tours/hands on workshops are offered to kids and young adults by the ‘ Grüne Werkstatt’.


The Botanical Garden is open daily during the year, admission is free. Donations are always welcome.
