  • A cross-section through almost all flora of the Earth is an unforgettable experience. Very large terrain, suitable for day trip. Parking spaces available

  • The gardens of Princess Sissi: how beautiful and tidy look the grounds of television documentaries! Worth the price of admission! Avoid weekends and the Central hours of the days of July and August.
