On Saturday, I spent the day off with a friend and visited the Botanic Garden in Freiburg.
The Botanic Garden was founded in 1620 as part of the University of Freiburg called “Hortus Medicus”. It was moved several times due to the growing city and its destruction during wars in 1632 and 1796, the final Botanic Garden was opened at its final place in 1912/ 1914. After another destruction during World War 2 it was rebuild and now hosts over 6.000 different species. It is divided into several areas with different plants, like an east asian area, a tundra area and so on. There are also some greenhouses with exotic flowers and succulents, but the greenhouses were closed when we arrived there.
Please enjoy the pictures!
