Attention: Due to the Corona pandemic the Botanic Gardens are closed until further notice.

The current regulations regarding the Corona pandemic state that botanic gardens may only be visited with a certificate of vaccination or recovery ("2G rule"). This applies to the greenhouses and to the gardens. We are obliged to check those certificates at all entrances.

As we are currently unable to carry out those checks, the gardens must unfortunately remain closed to visitors until further notice.

Welcome to the Botanic Gardens

Take a look around the world of plants. Every day of the year there is something new to see. Experience the palace garden with its record-breaking trees, take a tour of the greenhouses and enjoy the summer kitchen garden with all its herbs and scents. Bonn University Botanic Gardens are always an experience.

Plant of the month November

Ceratostigma griffithii

It has been blooming continuously since the summer and even now in November continues to impress with its blue splendor. In addition, the foliage is now turning an autumn color – a real eye-catcher right at the side entrance to the Palace Garden (Meckenheimer Allee 171).
