  • I was very surprised to find a such large garden here. Very lovingly designed, he invites to linger and relax. Previous comments, that the tower was renovierunsgbedürftig, I can not confirm. An elevator does not work. There is a second. The Butterfly House is made up of dead animals. I pity Fande. We were here for three hours and have spent like more time. From the road follow not the signs to the tower. The entrance is closed. Taxis doesn't get there. There and a time to pick up agree best with a driver from the site. Admission $5 are adequate.
