Location of the Botanical Garden

Back in the 1930s, the Botanical Garden was established in its current location in the floodplain of the natural Kayen Mill Creek, which was located outside of the city limits at the time, and was partially built upon small agricultural fields consisting of orchards and fallow land with very fragmented heterogeneous vegetation. Beginning in the 1940s, large residential areas were constructed in the greater area, with the “Komponistenviertel” and the “Hansaviertel” directly neighboring the garden. Since then, due to increased urbanization and the development of the “Holbeinplatz” as a central transport hub, the area surrounding the garden has taken on a more urban character.
