The Sichtungsgarten Weihenstephan (7 hectares) is a horticultural garden maintained by the Research Institute for Horticulture of the Fachhochschule Weihenstephan. It is located at Am Staudengarten 9, Weihenstephan, Freising, Bavaria, Germany, and is open daily except Sunday in the warmer months; admission is free.
The garden was founded by Richard Hansen in 1948 on the grounds of a nineteenth-century villa. It now contains a large variety of perennial plants, and is primarily focused on education and training for students of horticulture, food technology, and landscape architecture.
The garden is renowned for its spectacular flower beds and borders, best to be appreciated between June and September.
