The Pavillion at the Old Botanical Gardens, Keil

The Old Botanical Garden is a green treasure at the fringe of Kiel's old town and the only former Botanical Garden in Schleswig-Holstein. It shows with over 280 woody plants in over 470 exemplifies probably the most diverse and valuable woody plant stock of all historical countryside gardens in the region.

The pavilion represents the crowning of the garden and the cupola is regarded as the crown of the city of Kiel. It was constructed as octagonal clinker building in 1891 and the viewing platform grants a wonderful view over the Fjord, one of Kiel's loveliest views.

The area of the Botanical Garden was from 1884 to 1985 part of the university Kiel and has become since then a public park. It is open daily.
