  • Really beautiful garden and very gepflegt...mit 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.

  • A 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.
