The Loki-Schmidt-Garten, also known as Botanischer Garten Hamburg, or, more formally, as Botanischer Garten der Universität Hamburg or Biozentrum Klein Flottbek und Botanischer Garten, is a botanical garden maintained by the University of Hamburg. It has a size of around 25 hectares and is located at Ohnhorststrasse 18, Hamburg, Germany, beside the Klein Flottbek station in the Osdorf quarter, and open daily without charge. It was renamed in 2012 after Loki Schmidt, the wife of the former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt. Though it was renamed, the old name coexists with the new one. Nearby Klein Flottbek station still has the second name "Botanischer Garten".HistoryAlthough the garden's institutional history dates to its first establishment in 1821 and transfer in 1919 to the University of Hamburg, today's Loki-Schmidt-Garten, then Botanischer Garten Hamburg, opened in 1979. Its earlier site still remains as the Alter Botanischer Garten Hamburg, which contains the garden's greenhouses. Therefore, Loki-Schmidt-Garten is sometimes called Neuer Botanischer Garten (New Botanical Garden).The compound of today's Botanischer Garten had initially been one of the four sections of the ornamented farm of Caspar Voght, then as Norderpark (Northern park). Süderpark (Southern park) is known as Jenisch park nowadays.

  • Beautiful place. Wonderful date afternoon with my baby, can only imagine its better during the summer time.
  • A great botanical garden to visit in Hamburg. It was free entry but donations are welcome and definitely worth donating for as it has a lot to offer. They have different areas with different themes. It's a little further away from Hamburg city centre but there is a S-Bahn stop on the road opposite the entrance. They have a car park which can get busy quite quickly. Lovely place for a family day out or for dates as it can be romantic when the flowers are blossoming. They have public toilets at the entrance and in the middle of the garden as well and a cafe too if you want to sit down and grab a coffee.
