  • The course is done very well in the stroller and the whole family can enjoy the Park and its freshness. A play area for kids and adults, sound for more terminals and a nice shop.

  • During our visit, it was very warm, so around 38 degrees. The advantage is that because of the high bamboo and many trees enough shadow the drawback is that you can not really enjoy the beauty of the garden there. In the garden there are no restaurant or stalls for sale of beverages - or we just didn't find it. Outside, there are enough restaurants, you can frequent without a ticket (if you lay a hold with the train, for example). Tip: In the Park at the "Ferme", there is a water dispenser, which leads fresh tap water at low altitude - possibly it was thought out for our four-legged friends. During our visit, a long queue formed at least with visitors who filled up the water bottles. The water was cool and clean. The garden itself is beautiful, because of the ubiquitous barriers you will feel but like in prison. It has a plant Zoo, where all the exhibits are strictly enclosed. It is neither intended nor possible to relax on one of the many meadows. Seating areas are rare. You encounter on a walk more often "Talking tables": pressing the button in the desired language (German also is), so a very well-crafted explanation sounds from a hidden speaker. Not too many in other languages people nearby, which replaced the offered leadership quite well. One learns much about bamboo, its origin, varieties, etc. otherwise a playground not much offered, some greenhouses, two or three bamboo art, a maze. If you want action or entertainment, is wrong. Bottom line: A beautiful landscaped garden, no more, no less. Quite the stop value, if you anyway with the steam train, turn over.

  • I couldn't believe such a place existed. It feels like you were transported straight to Asia, it's huge, beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommend it but get there early as it gets very busy past 2pm.
  • This is rightfully famous not just for the bamboo enthusiast, although it is a must for those, but just for the shere beauty of it. Do check opening times before setting off and allow at least an hour and a half to visit and a lot longer if you are an enthusiast.
  • Nice place to visit to rest a bit from the hot wether and see stunning bamboo and gardens. Well done and maintained
  • What a fantastic place, I could wander around here every day, peaceful and just lovely.
  • Great place to hangout. Bit expensive, but you get to see all the varieties of bamboo plantation from entire world.
