Garden Park Must See
Filled with hundreds of plant species, Heller Garden is an unusual botanical garden with quirky statues and flowers. When you enter, a brochure with a guide is provided. Some of the plants and most of the statues are accompanied by descriptions. You will find cacti, edelweiss, ferns like Osmunda regalis, magnolias, orchids, and much more. Wear comfortable walking shoes, as the pathways can be quite steep.

  • Hadn't heard of these before we arrived and so glad we visited. Beautiful gardens with lots of seating areas to sit and admire the gardens. A mini and not so busy Chelsea flower show !  more »
  • We were visiting this park in the morning and despite the heat inside the park it is very good. The only flaw is the stagnant water (artificial laghettini) with fishes that swim in a water very dirty of algae and moss. Journey time 1:30 minutes and you can find free parking lots 50 meters before or near the traffic lights.

  • Well cared for and particular. Beautiful statues. Cute little clothe and bar. Open a couple of extra toilets and especially lower the price a bit. 12 euros is too many. Still recommended.

  • Stunning g place. Takes a good hour to get around it. Not really wheelchair friendly ic you want to see everything. Stunning plants and the bamboo.... wow!! Lovely ponds and waterfalls and little bridges. A stunning buddha and the fish and turtles are amazing. Worth the €12 per person. There is a little cafe in there too. Beautiful place. A must see
  • Beautiful garden.. pictures don't do it justice.. well worth a look around
  • I was there a few years ago. This is a must see place for nature lovers and passionate gardeners. Even if you are not a gardener, it is still worth a visit, because it is simply beatiful. It will take you about 1,5 hours to have a look at the garden. There are few sections representing different geography and plants choice characteristic for those. I was especially impressed visiting in a garden in asian style.
  • Wonderful location really worth to be seen for nature architect fans and habited by Andre Heller
  • Lovely whimsical garden , worth an hour. I would have liked more plant name plates but that may have spoiled the artwork.
