Botanischer Garten (Botanical Garden)

Right next to the Nymphenburg Palace Park there is the botanical garden. It is one of the biggest botanical gardens in Germany and is part of the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns (the Bavarian collection of natural science).

The garden contains several greenhouses as well as different theme gardens, partially with small ponds and a small lake.

The history of the Botanical Garden

The first botanical garden in Munich was established in 1809 near Karlsplatz (Stachus). Today this area is still a small park called Alter Botanischer Garten (old botanical garden). Due to the fast growth of the city of Munich the new botanical garden was built on the outskirts of Munich in Nymphenburg. Karl Ritter von Geobel and the landscape gardener Holfelder planed and designed the new site.
