OUTDOOR FACILITIES AND BIODIVERSITY
Regardless of whether it is a landscape garden, shrubbery or boulder park - some of the green spaces at our university already offer high-quality breeding, shelter and feeding areas for numerous species of insects and birds. The large number of unsealed areas, hedges and trees on campus ensures good water absorption into the soil and good CO2 filtering from the air. By carefully and effectively handling our green spaces, the university can make a significant contribution to the preservation of the biodiversity of flowering plants and grasses and provide a livelihood for the many different butterflies, bees and other insects as well as birds. We warmly welcome the colorful diversity of flora and fauna.
