Mountain flora rarely gets it due. At this garden you will discover varieties from all over the world and learn a lot about them. Free entrance with gondola tickets; you can even buy a nice pot of edelweiss!

A nice place to stretch your legs after queueing and riding the cable cars. Shame not many flowers were in bloom at this time of year. Entry very reasonable too.

This is a great location as part of the Skyway, but the time to visit would be early summer when the plants are blooming. I went in August and there were no flowers. Since it is part of the skyway up to Point Helbronner it...More

We had to rush around this garden as it was late in the afternoon when we got there, on our way down the mountain. It was beautifully kept and there was a very wide variety of alpine plants in the collection.
