Schlosskeller Giessen


  • Botanical Garden (Botanischer Garten), the oldest botanical garden in Germany which is still situated in its original location. For citizens and visitors the Botanical Garden is a place of relaxation and recreation in the heart of the city. The garden was a gift from Count Ludwig V of Hessen in 1609, on the occasion of the foundation of the university. Originally, it was used to raise medicinal herbs (hortus medicus). In 1802 a forestry part was added. A 200 year-old gingko tree dating from this period still stands here today.
  • Old Castle (Altes Schloss), another important historical building that was brought back to its former beauty in 1976, after it burnt down completely through a bombardment. The old Castle is the main seat of the Regional Museum (Oberhessisches Museum) containing the painting gallery, the crafts department and temporary exhibitions. The castle tower can be visited during the opening hours of the museum. The only remaining part of the original building is the so-called Heathens’ Tower which served as a dungeon for robbers until the 18th century.
