The Botanischer Garten Bielefeld is a municipal botanical garden located beside the southeast edge of the Teutoburger Wald at Am Kahlenberg 16, Bielefeld, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is open daily without charge.
The garden was established in 1912 on one hectare. It was enlarged in 1914-1915 with the installation of the alpine garden containing about 500 different plant species, and in 1925-1927 enlarged again by a further 2.5 hectares to the west for its rhododendron collection. By 1952 it contained about 3000 species.
Today the garden contains about 2500 plant varieties. Its highlights include a rhododendron and azalea collection, alpine garden, medicinal and herb garden, heather garden, flora of the Buchenwald region, and a half-timbered house dating from 1823.

  • Can’t say enough about this well kept garden...the fragrant trees a delight, the hydragenas gorgeous! Highly recommend.  more »
  • The place is great for a fast visit, but not great for to do it with a buggy. No place to eat, good bathroom.  more »
  • Pretty place to be, not very big, but has a variety of flowers.
  • Thet were "renovating" but still gorgeous. It's spring so loads of flowers. Also loads of benches and places to sit and enjoy the gardens in peace. The walk to get here includes hills but it's nice to see the gardens from different levels.
