Long Description:

The iron and glass Palm House was erected in 1881-2 to designs by Franz Xaver Segenschmid. Palm House consists of a 28-meter high central pavilion and two lateral pavilions which are 24 meters high. The pavilions are linked by lower passages. The structure is 113 meters long and the climate is maintained by steam heat so that rare specimens from all over the world can be grown here.
