Children in the Botanical Garden

Adventure garden

The adventure garden for children is hidden behind the trees between the garden plants for use and the medicinal herb garden. 3 stations offer children the opportunity to playfully explore botanical topics such as annual rings, wood weight and the roots of plants.Scents, flowers and leaf surfaces of plants can be explored at various locations.

A barefoot trail over hill and dale invites you to explore.

A covered area with tables and chairs offers space for a break and provides shelter from the rain.

What do the roots of a cactus or a fence beet look like?
Plants to touch and wood to climb.
