The Forest Botanical Garden Eberswalde is located on the southern outskirts (on the Zainhammer , a former blacksmith's shop) and belongs to the Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development .


It was founded in 1830 with what was then the Royal Prussian Higher Forestry School in Eberswalde . The forest scientist Friedrich Wilhelm Leopold Pfeil (1783-1859) decided, with the support of Wilhelm von Humboldt , to relocate the Forest Academy from Berlin to Eberswalde. The garden contains native and foreign plants and serves as a teaching garden for the forest students. The first facility (called Pfeil's Garten ) is located opposite today's main entrance in the forest.

Under forest inspector Bernhard Danckelmann (1831–1901), the current 8-hectare garden was laid out from 1868 to 1874. A memorial by the sculptor Fritz Heinemann was unveiled in his honor on August 10, 1905 .


In the forest botanical garden over 1200 clans of woody plants are planted. These shrubs and trees are native to Germany or come from many countries around the world, especially from North America and East Asia . There are also many herbaceous medicinal and aromatic plants in this garden.
