Very beautiful and interesting gardens, very well laid-out, well-balanced and well-maintained (by a crew of some 30 full-time gardeners). A must see for garden lovers.

An amazing garden, with an amazing view all around it, there is a lot to see here, and there are several places where you can sit and relax with a drink and a snack.

It's worth getting to the top sections of the garden, to enjoy the views - there is a platform, too. Look out for the parrots.

We spent over three hours here in June. There are regular buses from the town centre to the gardens. The ticket prices are reasonable considering the size of the gardens. There is a huge variety of different themed gardens. All signs are in German, Italian...More
