The Ulm Botanical Garden, located on 28 hectares of area, is one of the largest university gardens in Germany. Its creation began not so long ago, in 1981, in the southeast of the university complex.
In 1986, the first greenhouses were built, in 1997 two more - for tropical plants, where visitors can see and learn a lot about the vegetation of the tropics. With the support of the pharmaceutical company Ratiopharm, a medicinal plant garden was created in 2001, in which botanists, technologists and pharmacists conduct a joint study of the medicinal properties of herbs. In 2000, the Ulm Botanical Garden was replenished with the so-called "farm garden". It carries out scientific work on the development of new and improvement of existing varieties of fruiting cultivated plants.
All 30 years of its existence, the Ulm Botanical Garden has been actively developing and today it amazes with the diversity of the presented collection of plants. It has more than 80 thousand specimens of herbs, shrubs and trees from Europe, South and Central America. Among them are about 50 thousand species of tropical plants and 20 thousand samples of mosses and lichens.
