If you love the Botanic Garden...

it is now very easy to support us with a donation. We have set up a donations box outside the Tropical Conservatory right next to the display case. Many thanks to all our friends!

P.S.: Donations are exclusively used to improve the visitor experience in the Botanic Garden. Projects like the restoration of the boardwalk across the Tertiary Pond, the refubishment of the bog or the new corten steel flower beds below the pavilion would be difficult if not impossible without your donations.
