Dear Sir or Madam,

as part of the measures to contain the spread of the Corona pandemic, the "Grüne Schule" will continue to be closed until June 30, 2021. We thank you for your understanding and solidarity in this challenging situation for all of us.

Information and Registration

The mission of the “Grüne Schule” is to offer a public educational program to stimulate interest in the fascinating interactions between people and plants.

The “Grüne Schule” – founded in 1980 – provides educational services for all age groups. Children and adults can experience plants in their different forms and environments: Palm House, Tropicarium, theme gardens on the grounds, and the Botanical Garden – providing insight on plant life on Earth and their ecological relationships. We offer tours, courses, workshops, art classes, vacation programs, children’s birthdays, and continuing education at a basic and more advanced level. Our staff is continuously trained by horticulturists, professional educators, and other experts – content and presentation skills are continuously updated and improved.
