We realize the important work to choose the varieties and harmonize them. A ballad to do without hesitation, and in addition it's free.
Beautiful and nice colour of flowers, cold weather and really enjoy it. Serrounding with nice view.. more »
A very peaceful spot. Free entry. Note the greenhouse doesn't open till 10am, if you are early risers! A good size, can easily spend a couple of hours. In the process of building an orangery and larger greenhouse. Park in the zoo car park. Note there are no facilities in the park - no toilets or cafes.
The Garten is very beautiful and contains a lot of different things to look at. The prices for coffee and cake is reasonable. Free entry to the park makes the whole experience really smooth. Please obey the signs to not walk on the grass so that future generations also can visit and see all the wonderful things.
