Fortyfive conifers and 19 plants are to be found along the way, and are labelled with their Latin, Italian and German names. A map indicates their country of origin. This walk is approximately 1.5 km long.
The 62,00 square metre park, hosts the largest and most varied collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers of the entire region. During the months of April and May the azaleas and rhododendrons form a wonderfully coloured and scented carpet.
