Not the type of large Botanical garden, nevertheless a fine jewel. Well maintained, attractive at different seasons, some quite corners and peacefull place in the city; Summertime opening until susnset, but wintertime closes at 5.00 pm

We followed the " green route" on our map to find this lovely garden. Free to wander and although small, beautifully laid out and labelled. A tranquil spot to sit and ponder. Very colourful and has a wide selection of plants.

Both for plant nerds and for tranquility seekers, this historical, well-kept Botanical Garden has an interesting collection of plants with clear (Latin) name cards. Beautiful old greenhouse. Very cosy also for a picnic.
