The Garden's outdoor displays

Order Beds

The south-east corner of the Botanical Garden is dedicated to systematic botany. Approximately 1,600 plant species, which can be cultivated outdoors, have been planted in a concentric layout and according to their plant families and to other higher taxonomic order.



The most ancient flowering plant families are in the centre, whereas the most advanced and most specialised groups of cultivars have been put on the periphery. A quaint pavilion decorated with Art Nouveau ornaments and looking out onto four magnolia trees is the heart of this section.


The planetary path from Uwe Waletzko runs between the pavilion (sun) and the Arctic (Neptune) in the western part of the garden.
