By 1952 it contained about 3000 species.
Today the garden contains about 2500 plant varieties. Its highlights include a rhododendron and azalea collection, alpine garden, medicinal and herb garden, heather garden, flora of the Buchenwald region, and a half-timbered house dating from 1823.
Botanischer Garten reviews
Pretty place to be, not very big, but has a variety of flowers.
Thet were "renovating" but still gorgeous. It's spring so loads of flowers. Also loads of benches and places to sit and enjoy the gardens in peace. The walk to get here includes hills but it's nice to see the gardens from different levels.
