Lush climbing roses proliferate across the trellis arch, and across from the entrance, the trail leads to an English greenhouse. But not only the garden culture is the Streppels on the heart, but also the species and nature conservation, which is why they have grown native plants such as Hawthorn and Apple rose and created a pond with water lilies.

Who lingers on one of enchanted seats, it will soon smell this spicy sweet smell of herbs and roses, is hearing the peaceful bees and the scratchy sound of dwarf chicken scratching in the ground for earthworms.
