About us

The Institute of Plant Sciences (IPS) of the University of Bern is located in the beautiful botanical garden. It is at walking distance from the train station and the historic citiy that belongs to the UNESCO world cultural heritage.

Our BOGA is the place where nature, science and culture meet. We do not only grow 6000 plant species in our garden, but also boost the imagination of artists - be it in fairy tale evenings, poetry nights, art openings, workshops, herbs festivals or special exhibitions.
