Botanical garden

More than 5,000 plant species are exhibited in the Botanical Garden's area of over 80,000 m2. The Botanical Garden thus offers an attractive refuge not only for research and teaching, but also for all citizens.

The city of Düsseldorf and its assets

NRW's state capital is one of the strongest economic regions in Germany with the highest growth potential and is successfully networked internationally. Students at HHU benefit from this optimal "networking" in many aspects of their studies.
