The Botanical Garden of the University of Innsbruck is a 2-hectare botanical garden operated by the University of Innsbruck. It is located in Hötting at Sternwartestraße 15, Innsbruck, Austria. The gardens are open at no cost every day; its greenhouses are open on Thursday afternoons for an admission fee.

Its first greenhouse was constructed in 1909, with three additional greenhouses added 1977-1979, a succulent house in 1993, and a sixth greenhouse for container plants built in 1997.
Today the garden contains more than 5000 species organized within the following major sections:
