BECOME A SUPPORTER

The Botanic Garden of the Ruhr-University Bochum is first and foremost a garden dedicated to research and education. However, we also strive to reach a wide public audience in order to share our fascination for the miracles of the the plant world with as many people as possible. Therefore, admission to our Botanic Garden is free. Visitors who love and enjoy this botanical oasis and would like to see it become even more beautiful are invited to support us with a donation. Every amount, small or large, helps us and encourages us to offer our visitors an ever better experience.
