This fine botanical garden forms part of an extensive area of parkland (including the Grüneburgpark) that lies about 20 minutes (on foot) to the north-east of the city centre.

First established in 1863, it has impressive beds of seasonal flowers (notably the bulbs in the spring and roses in the summer), as well as large hothouses containing tropical plants. These include the original and recently renovated Palmenhaus of 1869 (palms), and the modern Tropicarium (orchids, bromeliads, ferns, cacti).
