COS Heidelberg buildingsIm Neuenheimer Feld 340/361

The new building “BoGa-Zentrum” (INF 361) in the main entrance area of the Botanical Garden was occupied in 2016. The first floor houses the administration of the garden (secretariat, technical and scientific management) as well as the social room, changing rooms, etc. for the gardeners in the basement. The upper floor is currently used mainly for providing climate chambers to the researchers of the nearby building INF 360.

The building INF 340 is the (historical) axis of the greenhouse complex, which was laid out in 1915. This includes the so-called “West Pavilion” in the direct vicinity of INF 360 and 361: this is where the entrance to the public greenhouses is situated, which also provides the meeting point for all public events of the garden. The West Pavilion houses in particular the janitor's office as well as archive and storage rooms. Via the Fern House (Hall A), the Great Tropical House (Hall B) and the Succulents' House (Hall C) it is connected to the East Pavilion. In addition to storage rooms, the offices of our head gardeners can be found here, as well as the apprentices' supervisors which will also move to INF361 at a later date.
