Botanical Garden

Shade terrace


A hidden path leads through a yew and boxwood forest. In high summer you can always find a cool spot here.
Native and foreign ferns, some the size of tree ferns, feel at home. Worth mentioning is the Nagelfluh wall, in the crevices of which yellow whitlow-grass (Draba aizoides), Rosy Cress (Arabis collina) and hare's ear hawkweed (Hieracium bupleuroides) cling.
