To enter, you must pass through the main entrance of the Botanical Garden (Menzinger Str. 65). Visitors of the BIOTOPIA Lab do not have to pay the entrance fee to the Botanical Garden if they present their free reservation, as we assume that you will come directly to the Lab. If you want to enjoy the Botanical Garden before or after your Lab visit, please buy a ticket. Depending on the Corona rules, this is only possible until the day before and only online - please see the Botanical Garden's page for more information.
