The Botanical Garden for higher education

Discover the themed tours at the Botanical Garden
The Botanical Garden offers a series of tours for groups from higher education. These tours are organised by the Botanical Garden guides.

Guided through the garden

During this tour, you can wander away from the paths. This may be the first time you really get to know the Botanical Garden! We will amaze you with trees and plants of all sizes and ages, beautiful and strange pollination stories and striking scents. A tour of the Botanical Garden will open up the whole world: you will travel from one continent to another, from the Japanese cherry tree to the Umbellaria californica.

Plants as medicine.

A scientific approach

The healing properties of plants have inspired people for centuries. The development of medicines has changed since people first managed to isolate active molecules from plants. Scientists investigate which plant molecules are useful. They can chemically modify the molecules so that medicines are sometimes better tolerated or absorbed. During this tour, you will discover how scientists use plants in medicine and the importance of scientific research in the use of plants as medicines.

Flora in art

During this tour, you will find out how artists have been inspired by plants over the centuries. You will discover the plants and flowers in the garden that can be found in works of art. They are not always depicted very faithfully. Sometimes they are loaded with symbolism or have a very personal meaning. We will flit from Matisse and Van Eyck to the lesser-known Osias Beert and the acanthus leaves of the Corinthian columns.
