A unique 1600s garden by the South West Zealand Museum department in Sorø with medicinal plants from Joachim Burser’s herbarium: Hortus Siccus.
Joachim Burser was a professor at the Sorø Riderlig Academy and a Royal pharmacist in Sorø from 1624 to 1639.
Christian IV ordered the house in Storgade to be built as an inn in 1624. At the same time Joachim Burser had his teacher’s residence and apothecary garden right outside the Abbey gate at the entrance to Sorø Riderlig Akademi, now Sorø Academy.
