Old botanical garden in the city of Göttingen. Especially the high plant diversity and calm setting is perfect for bird species trying to find a calm space in the city. Besides the general bird species like Blackbird or tits like Long-tailed Tit, you can also find Common Kingfisher here. In winter there have been records of the rare visitor Bohemian Waxwing. Worth a visit if you are in the area.



You can go by bus or take a walk from the city centre. Its not very far from the centre. Parking is difficult but possible at the university of Göttingen.
