Botanischer Garten Hamburg
The Botanischer Garten Hamburg (25 hectares), more formally known as the Botanischer Garten der Universität Hamburg and the Biozentrum Klein Flottbek und Botanischer Garten, is a botanical garden maintained by the University of Hamburg. It is located at Ohnhorststrasse 18, Hamburg, Germany, beside the Klein Flottbek station, and open daily without charge.
Although the garden's institutional history dates to its first establishment in 1821 and transfer in 1919 to the University of Hamburg, today's Botanischer Garten Hamburg opened in 1979. Its earlier site still remains as the Alter Botanischer Garten Hamburg, which contains the garden's greenhouses.
The garden is organized into three major sections:
- Systematic garden (approximately 3.5 hectares) - 90 beds of plants organized by evolutionary relationship, as defined by Armen Takhtajan in 1959.
- Geographical garden - plants arranged by geographic origin, with areas for Europe, North America, southern South America, and East Asia. This section also includes an alpine garden, Japanese garden, and Chinese garden.
- Plant and man - five thematic gardens: Farmer's Garden, Biblical Garden, crops, pharmacy garden, and poisonous and medicinal plants.
