Welcome to the Botanical Garden of the University of Osnabrück

The Botanical Garden of the University of Osnabrück is characterized by a specific location. The global diversity of plant communities is shown in the first stone quarry. Markedly stands out there the Amazon rainforest glasshouse from the quarry edge. 2011, a second quarry in the garden has been integrated where native plants reclaim these suburban protected natural area.
As the universitary garden it is an indispensable resource for research and teaching. Another concern is the preservation of native biodiversity, which is reflected in several gene bank activities. The environmental education is provided by the Grüne Schule, she offers tours as well as action programs for their own participation. By the generous support of the Friends of the Botanical Garden more activities such as exhibitions, concerts and lectures are made possible.
We invite you to discover the diversity of plant life in the garden and enjoy it as a place to relax!
