A panoramic view across the expanse of countryside around Gerlfangen forms the backdrop for the garden created by Werner and Marita Hilt. This garden has been laid out with a love of plants, a marked taste for garden design and a wealth of experience.


As part of the Open Gardens Scheme, it offers the perfect meeting place for garden-lovers, artists and local producers.





This garden, first laid out in 1954, now consists of a 2400 square meter cottage garden with mature trees, English-style herbaceous borders with grasses, roses, clematis, flowerbeds for both sun and shade, an Alpine garden and a wild-swimming pond. 


Carefully selected sculptures give the visitor space for reflection.


There is a kitchen produce area, with herb garden, fruit bushes, orchard and an insect ‘hotel’.

The fauna now include a number of barn owls with various nesting areas.

The winter pause gives the garden inhabitants some rest...
