Dear Guests, friends, supporters and interested people,

being a privately run botanical garden located at 1800 m above sea level makes the special circumstances of our work not only more interesting, but also leads our philosophy to a more species-appropriate and naturalistic way of gardening. We take the following topics very seriously and follow them with all our passion and effort.

  • Conservation and collection
  • Education
  • Recreation
