Covering an area of 21.20 hectares (52.4 acres), the Munich Botanical Garden in the suburb of Nymphenburg is one of the most important botanical gardens in the world and is visited by over 350,000 visitors a year. It is home to approximately 19,600 species and subspecies.

The Botanical Garden is also used for scientific research, for example for phenological studies (studies of the flowering and fruiting times of plants), which also include plants at the Alpine Garden on the Schachen (1,860 m). The Garden is also a place for the training or further education of gardeners. Last but not least it provides a refuge for bee species and many other insects.
