Botanical Garden

Medicinal plant garden


Best time to visit: April to November

In curved and round beds, we invite you to encounter the approximately 700 medicinal plants from different angles.
What distinguishes a medicinal plant from a poisonous plant? And which plants are suitable for strengthening the organism so that it does not become ill? You will not only find answers to these questions, but also to the changes in the use of medicinal plants over time or to the use of medicinal plants in different medical systems such as Chinese and Tibetan medicine as well as Ayurveda and Unani.
In addition, there are beds dedicated to the topics of Bach flowers, gemmotherapy and homeopathy.
The exhibition bed is currently displaying medicinal plants on the topic of "burnout".
