We had a little problem with finding the entrance, so it took us two tries and two visits to Belvedere to find it.

I see that some reviewers mentioned fee, but my boyfriend and I didn't pay any.

The place is wonderful! Not only that it is great for walking and enjoying, but it is also educational, with fauna from all over the world. It is great when you can see some trees and plants for the first time really, and you feel looking at the world in its small version.

We visited following a very disappointing trip to the Belvedere and this made up for it. The cost was 3.5euros in July 2014; well worth the entrance fee. Well-signed, beautifully-kept and a bonsai collection. It is nearly the end of the season, but the plants were cared for. Right beside the (free) Botanic Gardens and a good visit for anyone who loves gardens

The Alpine Garden is probably overlooked by many people, but it is in the Belvedere complex just to the southeast of the Upper Belvedere. For a serious gardener, this is five-star attraction which is worth a special trip in spring or very early summer. For a non-gardener, it would be less interesting, but iit s attractively landscaped and is worth a stroll if you are in the area of the upper Belvedere. There is an entrance fee (3 Euros if I remember correctly).

So, for the serious gardener: This garden does not consist of only alpine plants, but also Mediterranean plants, plants from western North America, and even some rhododendrons and kalmias. However, the focus is on alpines from around the world. Most of the plants are well-labelled with the latin names (as well as the German names). Due to the nature of the plants grown here, it probably reaches its peak bloom sometime in May, but it was still very floriferous when I visited in mid-June. It closes for the season in early August, when almost all of the plants grown here would have finished blooming, and when many would have gone dormant for the summer.

There is also a small collection of bonsai.

Unique flowers thousands of thousands. The most impressive are “mame” bonsai. They are separated in one of the corners.
