Botanic Gardens Kiel

Guided tours

We offer guided tours through the gardens and the public greenhouses of the Botanic Gardens Kiel.

Guided tours by our staff

Our staff will guide you through the garden facilities and will describe not only the diversity of the plant kingdom and exotic economic plants, but also the biotopes of Central Europe. You would like to have a guided tour to a topic of your choice? Contact us!


Please contact us by phone: 0431 880 4276 or 0431 880 4275.


For a guided tour of about one hour by our staff, we charge:

- for groups of up to 20 adults: 60 Euro.

- for groups of up to 20 children or pupils: 30 Euro.

Sunday walk

On the first Sunday of each month from April to October, we offer a guided walk with a specific scientific topic through the gardens. Staff and/or scientists of Kiel University or from the Kiel region explain specific aspects of biology, botany and related topics. Participation is free of charge. Registration is not required.

The next Sunday walk will be announced in our schedule.

Self-guided tours to Botanic Gardens Kiel

We are working on translations of the booklets that will allow self-guided tours to the Botanic Gardens Kiel also in English. Please check this page from time to time for updates.
