The Rennsteiggarten Oberhof is a botanical garden specializing in mountain flora, located in Rennsteig at Am Pfanntalskopf 3, Oberhof, Thuringia, Germany. It is open daily in the warmer months; an admission fee is charged.
The garden was established in 1970 on the grounds of a former quarry at an elevation of 868 meters on the Pfanntalskopf. In 1972 the Cultural Federation and University of Jena agreed to scientific support, and plantings began with material from the Botanischer Garten Jena. In 1980 an indigenous plant bog was created, with a nature garden begun in 1985 for protected plants from the Thuringian mountains, and in 1993 a garden of Thuringian herbs.
