Welcome to the Rennsteiggarten Oberhof
BOTANICAL GARDEN OF MOUNTAIN FLORA
What is the „Rennsteiggarten“ ?
The Rennsteiggarten Oberhof is a lovely and unique garden of mountain flora covering an area of more than 7 ha (17 acres). It hosts about 4,000 mountain plant species from Europe, Asia, North and South America, New Zealand and the arctic region.
What is so special about it ?
Because of the climatic conditions of the Rennsteiggarten (on the ridge of the Thuringian forest at a height of 830-868m, low annual average temperature, high annual precipitation, snowcover up to 150 days) the mountain plants can develop their typical growth and blossoms.
They have been settled on natural plant areas according to their ecological needs and geographic distribution.
When is it open ?
April 20 – September 30:
daily 9.00 – 18.00
October 1 – November 1:
daily 9.00 – 17.00
