Botanical Garden of the University of Maribor

Under the foothills of Pohorje you will be enchanted by the diverse and lush vegetation of the Botanical Garden of the University of Maribor, where you can come to relax, socialize, learn, and get to know nature. In the area of the former castle park, several autochthonous and foreign species of trees, shrubs and flowers flourish a few kilometres south of Maribor.

During the relaxation walk in the botanical garden you can observe occasional and permanent exhibitions, such as hunting, geological, and archaeological. In case of prior announcement, the garden is presented as a guided tour, while larger groups can visit the garden also in winter when it is otherwise closed for visitors. The pleasant natural ambiance on eight hectares near Hoče invites you from the early spring to late autumn.
