The Bavarian Alpine Garden

While climbing up Schachentor to visit the Koenigshaus you will find an alpine garden.  It’s rather apt at 1860m above sea level.  This particular garden is the oldest one still operating (opened 1901) and has plants from Europe, the Himalayas, the Caucasus, the southern hemisphere, and the Arctic.  It’s laid out in a very organic style and I’ve probably taken pictures of the same thing from different angles.

The woman on the phone in some of the photos is the gardener.  She was having a good blab the whole time I was there.  There was also a teenager with her father and she did NOT want to be looking at boring plants after having just climbed up the dumb mountain.  Zu langweilig!

Some of the photos didn’t come out properly because my super AF macro focussed on some random thing in the background.  Hmph!
