Guided tours at the BGBM (Monday and Tuesday, September 14/15)

A number of guided tours will be offered by BGBM curators and staff providing an insight into our collections (Botanic Garden, Herbarium Berolinense, Dahlem Seed Bank), the Botanical Museum and the library.

 Post-conference excursion (Saturday, September 19)

We are planning a post-conference excursion to the UNESCO biosphere reserve “Schorfheide-Chorin” northeast of Berlin on Saturday, September 19. During the field trip different habitats of this protected area (e.g. Ancient beech forests, ponds and bogs) will be visited. The day will be round up by a guided tour in the medieval Chorin Abbey (former Cistercian Monastery).

This excursion will be co-organized by colleagues from the DFG-funded project biodiversity exploratories.
