Make sure your camera is fully charged for your visit of Botanischer Garten, a sprawling nature lover's paradise covering an area of more than 13 hectares (32 acres). The garden was founded in 1968 and has been continuously expanded and improved. Opened to the public in 1971, the garden now includes tropical, alpine, desert, and savannah houses, as well as a large Chinese garden laid out in a southern Chinese style. Set aside plenty of time to explore the garden's fenced outdoor areas, where plants grow organized into geobotanical regions, such as forests, coasts, meadows, prairies, and marshes. The garden's greenhouses shelter hundreds of species of tropical, subtropical, and alpine plants.

Botanischer Garten Reviews
A well worthwhile visit is the Botanical Garden of Bochum Da Xue - with an Chinese Stone Garden embedded at the lower Part of the Garden. Very nice and truly authentic- one of my favourite places more »
very natural garden, really beautiful and with many trees, even good on a hot and sunny day. Easy access with bus or by walk from university. more »
Lovely little oasis of calm. Great for a nice walk with lots to see. The Chinese garden is beautiful. The three themed (rain forest, desert, savanna) hot houses are well laid out and planted. Good access although could be difficult in parts for wheel chair users as some of the ramps are overgrown.
Lovely gardens. Green with splashes of colour as the spring flowers bloom. There are well designed walking paths, plenty of seating and the Chinese garden is a bonus.
