POI 6: Botanical Garden


Just take a few steps away from the buildings of RUB and you are in the middle of nature. The Botanical Garden opened in 1971 – ten years after the parliament had decided to build a university in Bochum. Plants from all over the world cover an area of 13 ha – herbs from Europe, the flora of Asia and North America, and tropical plants, which we will see later on our tour.

If you follow the main path through the garden, you will pass a pond to your right, where you can listen to the very special mating-concert of the frogs in spring-time.
