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!
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.
