  • Really beautiful garden and very to learn, and even try out different stations bridges, stairs, observation platforms, many seating areas, sufficient information panels... for children (z.b.Sonnenuhr) ...wir were definitely expecting less than is commanded us! Dog is not allowed! We definitely come again and will recommend the race track grounds. We spent about 3 hours there and had a wonderful day!

  • the race track garden is a gem. but actually terrific. a lively exhibition of plants from different regions of the Earth. There you can see the gardeners work with much effort and dedication. It is all just right. the alien plants from seeds taken to not destroy the local flora. The Sauna stones to do this and then also so arranged, one might think that the sections are really 1:1 from the origin areas. There were many experiences ' AHA ', very entertaining!

  • In February, the garden was more logical way closed. The walk from the garden back through the forest through the snow-covered landscape was wonderful.

  • The race track garden is indeed really nice, game stations are achieved for children and the paths through the Park are beautiful, but the mountain plants, you get to see are uninteresting for the average person. Some plants lack the signs. Ultimately, one was allowed to pick even blueberries growing numerous left and right of the. A visit is worthwhile only for botanists, who are attracted by the flora in the mountains.

  • With a dog, they can resist the directions to the local recreation center race platform garden Oberhof. Even if an entire bus travel group of cashier certifies that the dog is proper and will - led on a leash is not enough. The ban is about 200 mtr before checkout! Pick out so not Oberhof and the race track garden for a relaxing stroll.
