  • 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!

  • A good place to stop, when you are passing it during a hiking tour.
  • A fascinating collection of alpine plants from around thwe world supported by the local micro climate
  • The race track garden is to hike from Oberhof out very well. Well suitable for families with small children or elderly hikers. The trail is well signposted and runs through the forest. We were on the road in October, with drizzle and it was fine. The garden itself is very been located and installed. In October, no flowering plants were more, but you could admire the hardiest and the many shrubs. We come definitely also in summer. For the physical well-being is taken care of and there is the possibility to buy plants.

  • The natural toboggan run is very suitable for children. For fast sledding but not. Already a super slide, is required to have some humor. Otherwise helpful and super staff.

  • The race track garden is a beautiful destination to the walk and enjoy nature. Now in the winter, the landscape works beautifully. I might me very relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
