Botanical Garden

Useful plant garden


Best time to visit: April to November

Over 400 different useful plants await your visit!
This part of the garden was completely redesigned in 2019. The plants are displayed in raised beds framed by larch wood. Each bed has a different shape.
Thematic focuses are the history of useful plants from the pile dwellers to the present day as well as kitchens of the world. Plants grow that are used in Japan, Thailand, India, Ethiopia/Eritrea, Mexico or Mediterranean cuisine.
You will also find the most important staple food plants, dye plants, fibre, oil and aromatic plants. A visit is definitely worthwhile!
