Herbarium Tubingense

The Herbarium Tubingense is one of the largest scientific collections at the University of Tübingen. It was founded in 1837 and currently harbours around 400.000 objects: dried specimens of vascular plants, ferns, fungi, lichens, algae and mosses from all over the world, together with large collections of seeds, fruits and spices, teaching models and other historical objects. The herbarium consists of a main collection and over 60 special collections. Many of these are of great scientific and historical value, and of great beauty.
