Few people are aware of how many varieties of fruit, vegetables and cereals have traditionally been grown in Bavaria. The Harvest Festival exhibition in the winter hall of the Munich-Nymphenburg Botanical Garden provides an insight into the regional treasures of our cultivated plants. Throughout the exhibition, tastings of vegetable and fruit varieties take place.

The event will be held as part of the Flower Power Festival 2023. Supported by the Society of Friends of the Munich Botanical Garden e.V. and the Elfriede and Franz Jakob Foundation.

Tickets: 6,50 Euro / 4,50 Euro (reduced price). You can find more information on the website of the Botanical Garden Munich.

LMU collaborates closely with the Botanische Staatssammlung München (State Botanical Collections in Munich). The cooperation goes back to the year 1820 and was initiated by the naturalist Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius, LMU's first Professor of Botany, who was also the Director of the Botanische Staatssammlung München. Since then, the two positions have always been linked. Professor Gudrun Kadereit, who holds the Chair of Systematics, Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants at LMU, is the current Director of the Collection and the Botanical Garden.
