Just on time for its 150th anniversary, The Palm House has been open to the public since its reinauguration on 25 March 2009. The legendary greenhouse presents plants from South Africa, Australia and New Zealand on 660 square meters.
The three sections of the Palm House have been set up as a display facility for warmhouse and coldhouse plants. The south wing, with its plants from the Cape of South-Africa, is subdivided into a cold and warm area. The central hall, called the octogon, is dominated by palm trees being typical warmhouse plants. That area has become the attractive main room, complemented by an oval-shaped fountain. The north wing shows Australian vegetation from cold and warm regions. A backroom in the Palm House accommodates smaller exhibitions on the history of the Pillnitz greenhouses and on botanical themes.
