The Botanischer Garten für Arznei- und Gewürzpflanzen Oberholz (2 hectares), or less formally the Botanischer Garten Oberholz, is a botanical garden specializing in medical plants and spices. It is located at Störmthaler Weg 2 in Oberholz, a small suburb southeast of Großpösna, Leipzig, Saxony, Germany, and open daily in the warmer months; admission is free.
The garden was established in 1936 as an adjunct to Leipzig Botanical Garden to provide pharmacists with a practical knowledge of medicinal and aromatic plants. It was revived in 1945, after World War II, by the initiative of a vocational teacher, and from 1948-2003 was maintained by the city of Leipzig as a municipal botanical garden. Since 2003 it has been maintained by the Association for Vocational Promotion of Women in Saxony. Today the garden contains over 400 species, and is cultivated as a teaching and display garden.
