‪Great garden in the heart of the city. The plants are beautiful and the variety spectacular. The plants are labeled. Great was to get close to plants you may not be able to experience in person otherwise. Price was very reasonable. ‬

‪I attended the very entertaining and beautiful summer festival which was so well done and the environment was gorgeous! Well suited to this garden area for such an event! Unfortunately I did not get to see much of the normal gardens but enjoyed this visit!‬

‪A must and a highlight of Jena! Housed are not only all types and variety of exotic plants but "El Coqui", the tiny singing frogs which are only seen/heard in Puerto Rico's rainforest El Yunque. If you are lucky and look close enough in to one of the singing trees you might even get a glimpse of these adorable tiny frogs. Then straight out of the Amazon basin in South America, you have the razor sharp teeth piranhas which you can marvel at and wonder how were these guys transported all the way to Jena, Germany. And last but certainly not least, the giant Goethe Ginko tree! Take your time through this amazing botanical garden and you will discover so many other highlights. Enjoy!‬

‪I’m sure the warm sunshine helped with our visit. We spend a good few hours leisurely wandering the gardens. They are superbly curated with clear labels on the plants. One of the oldest botanical gardens around. Founded by Goethe himself. ‬

‪If you’re wondering what the everblooming daylilies you and your buds can do for entertainment in Jena, just ask yourself, “WWGD” (What would Goethe Do)? Goethe would undoubtedly bolt over to the Botanical Garden to visit the tree he planted there so many years ago…his beloved Ginkgo, which is now the oldest in Thuringia.

Fun side story for luvvas: his poem “Gingo Biloba” (later “Ginkgo Biloba”) was dedicated to his muse, Marianne von Willemer. The tart was as recently married woman, who at 35 years his junior was the Catherine Zeta Jones to his Michael Douglas…the Hilaria to his Alec…the *ahem, fur ball* Courtney Stodden to his Doug Hutchison.

While creeping on Marianne, Goethe mailed her a Ginkgo-leaf with a side of fava beans. Then on September 15, 1815 he read his draft of the Gingo/Ginkgo poem to her and friends in Frankfurt. On September 23, 1815 he saw Marianna for the last time. Guess he couldn’t see the forest for the trees!

And here for your pleasure is the poem that was the kiss of death for their little tryst:

“Gingo Biloba”

This leaf from a tree in the East,
Has been given to my garden.
It reveals a certain secret,
Which pleases me and thoughtful people.
Is it a living being,
Which has separated in itself?
Or are these two, who chose
To be recognized as one?
Answering this kind of question,
Haven’t I found the proper meaning,
Don’t you feel in my songs,
That I’m one and double?

In addition to Frau Willemer, old Joe was also inspired by his surroundings at the garden to create some of his other greatest hits, like “West-östlicher Divan” and “Italian Journey”, which brings us back to the garden.

The second-oldest botanical garden in Germany, it was first established in 1586 as the medical garden, “Hortus Medicus in Collegio” by the University of Jena. It has been enlarged and redesigned many times in the years since. In 1776, Goethe and Botany Professor Batch founded the Botanical Garden (currently maintained by the Friedrich-Schiller-Univeristy of Jena) . It now contains about 12,000 plants from every climatic zone on Earth.

Areas of the grounds include an alpine garden, a collection of medicinal and useful plants, a pond, an arboretum containing about 900 species of deciduous and coniferous trees and shrubs, a palm house, a collection of rhododendrons, roses, and dahlias, and a recreation of Goethe’s Garden and the Inspector House.

The succulents section of the garden is not to be missed for those furnishing guest rooms for in-laws. Your interior decorator will be delighted when you show them examples of the the Echinocactus Grusonin/Golden Barrel Cactus, affectionately known as the “Schwiegervater and Schwiegermutter Sessels” (Father-in-law and mother-in-law chairs)!

No need to leach off your friends to get in…admission is under 5 Euro.
Most areas are wheelchair-accessible.‬

‪When I tag along on my husbands business trips, I always enjoy visiting a city's Botanical Gardens. In Jena, it was a wonderful place to be. The landscaping was beautiful and the variety of plants and trees were terrific. There were many benches to sit and lots of shade available on a hot day. I did buy a map in English and translated some names on my phone app. It was my favorite over another Botanical garden in Germany and the one in Madrid. ‬

‪Visited the calm botanical garden during my conferrence stay in March. The greenhouses were nice to walk in, the outside grounds were still much more in winter mode, it was quite cold spring this year. 1-1,5 hours is enough to see the whole botanical garden. Student discounts applicable.‬
