The Botanischer Garten Solingen is a 6-hectare (15-acre) botanical garden located at Vogelsang 2a, Solingen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is open daily without charge.

The garden dates to 1952 when the city opened its first greenhouse on a 4-hectare site, with the garden itself opening in 1963. In 1965 the tropical house was built (143 m², 8 meters in height), and in 1994-1995 the greenhouses were extended to 826 m² by adding a cactus house and bromeliad house. In 2001 the garden was extended to over 6 hectares, and has gradually been handed off from city management to a nonprofit organization.

Today the garden's major sections are as follows:
