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.

  • In part the trees in their blankets were wrapped and yet you got a glimpse of this beautiful jewel of a garden. The interplay of art and nature can be seen here as an example. Take time and sit again and again to enjoy the different looks.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful
