A colourful window to the university

The Bonn University Botanic Gardens are a location for research and teaching. They are a place for meetings and events. But they are also a wonderful place for recreation. With more than 150,000 visitors per year, the Botanic Gardens are the university's largest showcase.

The combination of research and information in our botanic gardens makes scientific work vivid and ecological connections visible. Visitors can enjoy the beauty of the gardens and at the same time recognise the importance of plant diversity - as well as the threats to our natural environment.

Through habitat destruction or direct extinction - species are disappearing today faster than research on them is progressing. We speak of a global biodiversity crisis.

Therefore, Bonn University Botanic Gardens contribute to species conservation. We have been implementing local and international conservation projects for years. One project in Bonn: the locally threatened Grey hair-grass (Corynephorus canescens) was reintroduced to the Tannenbusch Dune.
