Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg


The Botanischer Garten München-Nymphenburg (21.20 hectares) is a botanical garden and arboretum located at Menzinger Str. 65, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is open daily, except on 24 and 31 December; an admission fee is charged.

Munich's first botanical garden, now called the "old botanical garden", was established in 1809 to designs by Friedrich Ludwig von Sckell near Karlsplatz, where its remains are still visible. The old botanical garden was replaced by a new garden created next to the Nymphenburg Palace Park in 1912-1913 and officially opened on 10 May 1914. The garden was designed by Peter Holfelder (1878-1936) who worked closely with Walter Kupper (1874 - 1953) and Leonhard Dillis (1871 - 1946). Today the garden cultivates about 19.600 species and subspecies on approximately 18 hectares. Its mission is to provide a beautiful and restful environment as well as educate the public about plants and nature more broadly. Major collections include an alpine garden, an arboretum, rose collections, and a so-called 'systematic garden' in which plants are arranged by taxonomic families.
