120 species with a total of over 700 plants can be found in the garden, which is designed with steps and paths, all of them labelled. 
Wild plants and herbs in abundance

A wonderful, publicly accessible herb garden awaits your visit right next to the striking Catholic village church and the historic village square of Escholzmatt. The diverse garden is a real bijou and blooms in all colours in summer. What is there not to discover here: herbs such as lemon thyme, watercress and wild garlic, but also wild plants such as viper's bugloss, mullein or hawkweed. 120 species with a total of over 700 plants can be found in the garden, which is designed with steps and paths, all of them labelled. The gardening company Aeschlimann from Marbach has done a great job here and also ensures that the garden does not "go wild" and continues to be so diverse.
