  • The landscape there is so beautiful. So many different kinds of plants, flowers and trees. Amazing variety and signs to explain them. We liked it so much we went back twice!

  • Fun place to visit, especially during a warm sunny day. The various types of flowers, trees, and other vegetation to be found is magnificent. It easily took us 1.5h and it feels like we didn't get through everything; definitely worth another visit, even during a different season. The maze was super fun, the bees are is fascinating, and love all the descriptions/names on the various plants/trees. The entry fee is reasonable, there's parking available, as well as coffee/snacks!
  • We went on the last night of the winter light show. We were deeply impressed in the amount of work that went into preparing each section/themed area of the light show, and that - despite being the last night - there seemed to be no visible damage to any of the displays. There were plenty of food places throughout the garden, as well as spaces to warm up if you were starting to feel chilly. I appreciated the clearly marked paths, and that there were multiple maps throughout the garden to help you find your way around. Entering and exiting were easy to do, as the staff had great crowd control, and communicated clearly that you could only enter the gardens within the time window listed on your ticket. Parking was limited, but there was traffic/parking control present as well, which made entering and exiting the site as a whole much easier.
