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. Heller Garden is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Gardone Riviera Edition.

  • Went to the garden just before it closed for the winter having read glowing reports.There is plenty of interest with quirky features but it is only about 150 metres long.Since the entry fee is as high...  more »
  • We stayed at this beautiful garden in spring and were positively affected by this skilful mingling art and nature. All well studied in detail.

  • I confirm that the garden is not huge, but the path is full of plants from all over the world and art. I'm not a connoisseur or the one that the other, but I appreciated the layout information. To appreciate it more I still recommend to non-experts to use a guide.

  • The Heller Garden was the only place worth visiting in Gardone on our ferry trip from Sirmione. A dull & nothing sort of place even the market on the promenade was lacklustre pleased we did not spend our 10 day holiday here we would have been bored to tears or alcoholics because nothing of any note except this really outstanding garden full of great specimens from all over the world & quirky artwork as well from some famous artists. Come to this resort to see this magnificent garden then make a swift getaway to somewhere with more interest.
  • Quirky statuary, lush, nice path layout, small snack and drink kiosk. 11 euros at this time pp.
  • A lovely spot of colours and contrasts. Very nice and curate garden that seems to pop up out of nowhere alongside Garda Lake.
  • A beautiful garden to lose yourself in. My wife in particular loved it.
  • Nice garden, worth a visit
