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.
