When the first buds of our camellia start to open and reveal their inner beauty, this is determined by nature and not by human hands.

The plants will probably blossom again in mid-February, treating visitors to a magnificent flower show at the Camellia House until mid to late April.

The camellia is over 250 years old and regarded as the largest and oldest of its kind north of the Alps.

And if you want to see even more beautiful blossoms, you can go next door to the Palm House and admire Strelitzia, Proteas and “Kangaroo Paws”.

The house remains closed in severe storms or cold weather.

Full rate: EUR 3.00; reduced rate: EUR 2.50 (free admission for children aged 0-16). Tickets can be purchased at the Old Guard House visitor center, at the Camellia House and from the machine in the Palm House.
Tickets are valid for both the Camellia House and Palm House.
