Access is included if you go on the skyway. During early September lots of flowers were in bloom and it was pleasant to admire them all in this alpine setting. Highly recommend!

Mountain flora rarely gets it due. At this garden you will discover varieties from all over the world and learn a lot about them. Free entrance with gondola tickets; you can even buy a nice pot of edelweiss!

A nice place to stretch your legs after queueing and riding the cable cars. Shame not many flowers were in bloom at this time of year. Entry very reasonable too.
