The garden with the tropical houses

The 5.6 hectare garden was laid out in the 1970s and shows on the one hand recreated habitats as in the Mediterranean Garden and Alpinum. Thematically arranged are the kitchen garden and the medicinal plant garden. The pond with its various habitats and aquatic inhabitants attracts many visitors. The three domes of the show houses are striking. The view axes north-south and west-east, kept free by large trees, are special and give the garden size and space.
We can present around 7000 plant species.
