These gardens are pretty as a picture. What a surreal location. 2000 m above sea level with views over Davos and valley.
Several different gardens each with their own atmosphere. You need to spend a couple of hours here to see all the gardens.
There was some damage after an avalanche in May, it's good to see how the rehabilitation is being managed. If you are lucky enough to recognise Klaus the head gardener, he's worth chatting to. His passion and knowledge is extraordinary.
This garden specialises in alpine plants, so you can enjoy lots of poppies, peonies, eidelweiss etc.
paths are gravel and some have steps, some wooden seats are also in the garden.

The garden is stunning in June, and when I went there midday it was not at all overrun with tourists. A few nice trails for a quiet walk, all with beautiful mountain views. The local transit pass (which might come with your hotel or AirBnB stay) gets you up the funicular for free, but if you have more time there are trails to walk up/down from Davos centre.

Our hotel included a public transport ticket that allowed us to visit Schatzalp. The gardens were being renovated so we could hiked the regular path around the area and saw some of the gardens from a distance. We loved the peace and quiet and the views of Davos. The path is wide and well-maintained. If you're more into busy attractions and activities for kids this might not be your thing. But if you enjoy hiking in the fresh mountain air and taking in the views, it's very nice. Tip - Bring a jacket or pullover. In the shade it can get cool, particularly if the wind is blowing.
