  • Beautiful botanical garden with also a beautiful castle. Beautiful flowers with amazing flowers and colourful. Big flipper made of wood. I reccomend this place to visit!!! There is also a restaurant in case you want to refresh. And you a few hours to see it all
  • The museum is decent. The gardens are quite interesting. If you live in countryside, don't bother to visit, it's not worth the price. If you're from a big city, it's a breath of fresh air so I suggest you to visit it.
  • Amazing gardens, extremely well done. We spent about 4 hours there (including a lovely coffee break by the lake) and enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended to do!
  • This is such a wonderful place to visit 💞 a lot of gardens with million varieties of plants. The concerts in the evening are also really cozy. I advise 👍🏻
  • Beautiful plants and flowers from all over the world. Some fun things for kids including wading pool, little labyrinth, adventure bridge. Many places are not wheelchair or stroller accessible, including the picnic area (we went anyway because we had to eat and they didn't tell us when we entered; it's up a steep ramp).
