The green lung of Munich

There has been a botanical Garden in Munich since 1809. Initially, the Nymphenburg Botanical Gardens were located between Stachus and the main railway station. Today, this park is known as the Old Botanical Garden. However, it soon became too cramped in the city center and the air pollution was too high. A new green lung was to be created on a larger area.

The new botanical garden, 21.20 hectares in size, was laid out in Nymphenburg in 1914. Since 1966, the two gardens, the Botanical State Collection and the Institute for Systematic Botany of the Ludwig Maximilian University, which are located on the same site, have been under joint management. The Botanical Garden is also an important training center for gardening apprentices and students.
