Greenhouse for Tropical Crops

This page contains automatically translated content.

A warm welcome!
Not only beautiful to look at, but also useful: this is what the approximately 500  useful plant species of the tropical greenhouse of the University of Kassel in Witzenhausen can do. The food, fodder, spice, medicinal, dyeing, energy, fragrance and fiber plants from the tropics and subtropics are available for teaching and research, but also for the approximately 12,000-15,000 visitors each year.
From daycare centers to senior citizen groups, there is something for everyone: whether it is a research trip on the topic of "What grows in my school bag" or a coffee or cocoa trail, a tour from info panel to info panel, the audio guides  or a guided tour "Once to the equator and back".
