OVER 200 YEARS OF HISTORY
Records on the history of the Karlsruhe Botanical Gardens were compiled in 2008, for its bicentennial celebration. In 1808, when Margrave Karl Friedrich von Baden had the complex built, he was already drawing on decades of Karlsruhe tradition in plant collecting. He continued this tradition, as did his successors. Historic plans: What did the gardens look like? What have we lost? There are also plaques in the green spaces highlighting interesting facts.
