A Unique Atmosphere

Asian landscapes, a japanese garden and a butterfly house allow you to not only experience exotic nature and culture in a new way, but also our own native ecosystem as well. In the greenhouse, follow the path from the Japanese Garden, through the lush greenery of Borneo and New Guinea into the Himalayas. Original exhibits such as a prayer wheel, a Chinese tea pavilion and authentic Buddha statues, accompany you along the way. There are also numerous exotic varieties of Rhododendrons for you to enjoy. With its many interactive activities, the botanika is a destination for the entire family. The unique atmosphere of the botanika also makes it a terrific space for events and parties, like a child’s birthday or even a wedding.

The Discovery Centre

Wander through a sweet-smelling meadow, observe a bee colony at work, or find out what it feels like to be the fly inside a carnivorous plant. In the Discovery Centre of the botanika you’ll experience the plant and animal world in a new, unusual way. The numerous interactive stations and exhibits bring you nearer to the wonders of nature, step by step.

Symbol of Peace: A Buddha for Europe

The Peace Buddha for Europe, decorated with gold leaf, shines in the botanika's Japanese Garden. On the initiative of the Dalai Lama, a Peace Buddha is to be erected on every continent. The one for Asia was consecrated by the Dalai Lama in Jayanti Park in New Delhi in 1993. The Peace Buddha for Europe has been on display in the botanika since August 2017. The 2.4 metre high statue is intended to serve as a symbol of peace for all and is not a place of worship.
