Summer festival "The Enchanted Garden" Sunday, July 1, 2018 - Friday, August 31, 2018, daily, 8:30 -22:00

For the Summer Festival 2018, the British artist Simon Costin is creating a fairy-tale setting made of flowers and blossoms from July 1 to August 31. Visitors can enjoy an “enchanted garden” filled with magic and wonder extending all the way inside the Giant.

Talking plants, shrunken garden houses, and giant gnomes

A paradise, out of joint and reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, tells unconventional garden stories that offer both children and adults alike interactive experiences.

Extended opening hours, daily from 08:30 to 22:00.
Evening tickets available from 18:00 onwards.

“When I close my eyes, I see hundreds of different shades of color; the beauty of plants and
flowers is a lavish feast for the senses. And gardens give people the chance to collect themselves and
dream a little”
