Botanischer Garten Duisburg-Hamborn

The Botanischer Garten Duisburg-Hamborn, also known as the Botanischer Garten Duisburg or the Botanischer Garten Hamborn, is a municipal botanical garden and aquarium located at Fürst-Pückler-Straße 18, Duisburg, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is open daily, and should not be confused with the Botanischer Garten Kaiserberg, another botanical garden in Duisburg.

The garden hosts about 1,000 species outdoors and in greenhouses. Major features of the garden include a landscape park, rhododendrons, fuchsia and primula collections, aromatic and medicinal plants, and ferns. The garden has also a lily pond, tropical greenhouse, subtroptical greenhouse, and greenhouse containing about 800 cact and succulents, as well as an aquarium.

According to local newspaper WAZ in March 2010 it had been on a list of comunitiy facilities together with public baths, that would be closed subsequently, since funding was no longer lawfull as of Art. 81 in German Haushaltsrecht. The mayor council of Duisburg decided against this plans – though without having found a proper way of funding that would and could find approval by superior Bezirksregierung Düsseldorf, which controls the city's funds.
