My wife and I planned to spend a couple of hours here and stayed the whole day. Especially enjoyed dozing under an oak tree in the large meadow. The cafe and restaurant was also good

This botanical garden is definitely a must see! It is rather small but very worth it. It is a nice place to stroll around and spend time looking at the flowers and fish in the small ponds.

The gardens are beautiful and go right up to the lake edge with views over to the other side of the lake. There are plenty of trails to follow and lots of beautiful flowers.

No entrance fee when I went, but a suggested donation is possible but not needed, if I recall correctly.
