History
The Merian Gärten are the perfect place to relax. Once the estate of wealthy agriculturist Christoph Merian, the grounds today accommodate grand gardens of stunning beauty.
In spring hundreds of iris, peonies, rhododendrons, clematis and fuchsia
burst into bloom in a myriad of colors. Hot summer days are heavy with the
scent of lavender while century-old trees cast cool shade in the historical
landscape garden. Kitchen gardens are ripe with striped zucchini, purple
peppers and other near-forgotten varieties of vegetables and berries waiting to be harvested. As autumn turns leaves a rich gold, morning fogs lie over the lawns and create a stunning atmosphere. In the cold months of the year the beauty of winter takes visitors by surprise: bright berries stand out against the snowy backdrop, ice crystals outline bizarre silhouettes in the subtle light.
In addition to providing a tranquil setting for peaceful strolls all year round,
the Merian Gärten offer an array of activities. Public tours of the gardens
shed a light on its rich heritage and allow a glimpse behind the scenes.
Summer open air concerts are renowned for their magical atmosphere.
Programs for schools bring children in close contact to the wonders of plant
life.
The gardens are also the perfect setting for weddings and other celebrations as well as meetings and seminars - the glasshouses, the 19th century orangery and other charismatic rooms of all sizes are available for rent.
