WHAT'S ON

LIMITED ACCESS DURING SNOW & ICE

For safety reasons there will only be limited access to the Botanic Garden during snow and ice (see map below). The display houses and a circular walk through the upper outdoor area will remain open, whilst the rest of the outdoor area, including the Chinese Garden, will not be accessible to visitors. Access to the garden will then only be possible via the main entrance (N-Südstraße 6).

Thank you for for your understanding.
