Staff was very friendly, hence the two stars, other than that it's a real tourists trap. 3-4 times more expensive then other tropical gardens we have seen and more a restaurant then a garden. Maybe nice for small kids or elderly people.

This lovely place hidden on top of a hill in Wolhusen features, amongst other things, two greenhouses with a restaurant and sitting area in one of them. There are booklets in different languages, so it is tourist-friendly. It is not just a greenhouse as it...More
