High-altitude flowers from the Pyrenees, New Zealand, China, Nepal or Tibet also grow in Switzerland. In the botanical garden Alpinum Schatzalp, 3500 plant species and flower varieties from the world's high mountain regions bloom from June to September.
Alpinum Schatzalp, the two-hectare Alpine Garden, is located in a multifaceted landscape with diverse types of forests, a wild mountain brook, alpine pastures, rocks and spring swamps. The historic Hotel Schatzalp, which was opened in 1900 as a luxury sanatorium, is part of this garden world.
The actual Alpine Garden is located at the rear of the Schatzalp area. A well-marked circular route leads through it. Each plant has a name plate listing its most important characteristics and providing information for interested visitors and botany buffs. Seminars and guided tours leading to medicinal plants - and to dedicated, gentle gardeners - round out the informative experience.
