The Saverne Botanical Garden, created by the pharmacist-botanist Emile Walter, is located next to the “Saut du Prince Charles”, at an altitude of 335 meters.

The latter shelters impressive plants collections, whose beauty and characteristic will undoubtedly allure you, in a somptuous 2.5 hectare glade.

Enjoy the discovery of the 'Alpinum' that gathers as well perennials and mountain-plants as iris and lily for example.

Then, let the 'Arboretum', in the lower part of the Garden, puzzle you. It is composed of an important essence-gamut. Indeed, on the one hand you have conifer and leafy tree essences, and on the other hand shrub essences .

Besides, do not hesitate in exploring the 'Peat bog', where you will be able to unveil the 'Sarracenia', a carnivorous plant, and several other plants belonging to the aquatic environment.

Finally, lingering through the Botanical Garden pathes, satisfy your curiosity feeling aroused by different types of ferns and lawns, and particularly an indigenous orchid lawn.

The whole of these plant collections will enable you to spend a pleasant day and trigger the coming out of your gardner soul.
