About the Hohenheimer Gärten

Hohenheim Gardens in the south of Stuttgart have been a special attraction for more than 200 years.

As scientific institutions, the English Garden created by Charles Eugene, Duke of Württemberg and Franziska of Hohenheim, the Palace Park to the south of Hohenheim Palace, and the research and educational sections in the Exotic and Botanical Garden, all provide support for the teaching and research work at the University of Hohenheim and the State School for Horticulture and Agriculture.
