  • Three gardeners and two craftsmen display their love of nature on every square centimeter on 7 ha. The entire facility is wonderful and barrier-free to explore. The small café gentian provides loving way for culinary and home-made highlights - visit, highly recommended with children! The o town bus goes to the roundabout and entrance almost to the door.

  • Botanical Garden specializing in alpine flora, located at an altitude of approximately. 800-900 m above sea level, because the mountain plants are usually the most attractive in the early spring, a visit to the best schedule from late April to June, so as to enjoy the flowering rhododendrons, sasankami, goryczkami, etc. The path is designed to advantage of the scenic landscape of the site. In a few places you will find tasteful picnic shelters/protection against wind and rain. A big attraction for kids!
