Respecting and Protecting Diversity – Welcome to Rostock Botanical Garden

The outdoor garden is open to visitors during the regular opening hours. To avoid infection with Corona though, the greenhouses are permanently closed. Thank you for your understanding.

Please comply with the protective regulations against the Corona virus that apply also to outdoor areas!

Day of Light in the Botanical Garden: Starting on May 16, 2021, Art and Science Light Things up

Marc W1353L: Secret of Grasses-V3-detail

The Institute of Physics at Rostock University takes part in the international Day of Light, in partnership with the Chair of Botany and Botanical Garden and the Art Association of Rostock. Starting on May 16, exposures by Marc W2353L can be seen in the outdoor area of the Botanical Garden, creating a link between art and current science, in our case on "resurrection plants". The Day of Light represents a starting point of a dialogue between art and sciene on the subject of light, which passes into a visible process to be continued after May 16.
