The dome

The hemispherical greenhouse near the entrance has become the Botanical Garden’s icon. It is a cold greenhouse with a winter temperature of 10 – 12°C and accommodates plants from regions with warm, dry summers and rainy winters. Visitors can enjoy not only the floral splendour of the Mediterranean region and the Canary Islands (e.g. various species of viper’s bugloss) in spring, but also exotic plants from distant continents with their impressive leaf and fruit shapes all year round.
