Guided tours

Our Tropical Greenhouse with Study and Showpiece Gardens staff is happy to take you on a guided tour of our facility! To schedule an individual appointment, please contact Franz-Josef Kuhnigk, Head Horticulturalist, via email or telephone. You can also contact the Office of Marketing and Communications to schedule a larger tour of the campus, including a walk-through in the Tropical Greenhouse.

All tours are free of charge. Unscheduled tours are possible depending on the availability of staff. In most cases, it’s better to make an individual appointment so that we can dedicate enough time to your group and focus on specific topics depending on your individual wishes.

We look forward to welcoming you!
