Loved how the show the local vegetation, the paths are really peaceful and views are great. Even if we did visit it on a rainy day!! more »
This will primarily be of interest to gardeners. If you're an alpine or rock gardener, it's of great interest. For everyone else this would be mildly interesting, but probably not worth a special stop... more »
Beate FreitagBeautifully landscaped garden with high-altitude plants from all over the world. Also very good for children. To the take with plants and delicious Blueberry and herbal tea.
Reiner GögelVery interesting, relaxing, a beautiful course. For nature lovers a must.
Andreas EschleVery good Botanical Garden!
Michael MeierA botanical garden for alpine plants: Grasses, lichens and mosses are known now once for extroverted flowers. You must go at the right time to see something spectacular. Apart from a simple walk through the garden is very entertaining and interesting set. Worth is a visit regardless of the season.
Lutz RFor plant lovers OK.
