With the start of the gardening season, the Rare Plants Fair invites plant lovers and garden enthusiasts to the Botanical Garden of the University of Vienna. From Friday to Sunday visitors have the opportunity to buy extraordinary rare plants, which are beyond the range of common plant assortments, for their garden, balcony or raised bed.

Anything that greens and sprouts

Numerous suppliers of selected rare plants and special assortments participate again this year, and are available to provide expert advice. Plant enthusiasts will find everything their heart desires, ranging from wild flowers, vegetable plants, perennials and woody plants to roses, cacti and orchids.

Several food stands cater to your culinary wishes, pampering your taste buds with organic and regional specialities.

The Botanical Garden's Grüne Schule (green school) and the school HLUW Yspertal offer an exciting, interactive programme for children, inviting them to explore plants.

With the entrance fee to the Rare Plants Fair, you support the Botanical Garden and contribute to the development of new programmes for visitors of the Grüne Schule. The University of Vienna is looking forward to your visit.
