Eötvös Loránd University's Faculty of Medicine established the garden in 1771. Its location was changed several times since the 18th century and the present site was purchased in 1847.

Füvészkert, still managed by the university, has over 200 endangered plants, including 150-year-old ginkgo trees, a palm house with tropical and subtropical plants and a Japanese garden, which hosts a cherry blossom festival every April.

Opening hours:
April 1 - October 31: 9 am to 5 pm, daily

Sakura (Cherry Blossom) Festival:
In 2019, the annual Sakura Festival will be held 7–8 April.

Entrance fees:
Adult: HUF 850
Children & Seniors: HUF 400
