Cultivator of plants Eisenhut


The botanic garden in Vairano (San Nazzaro)



This magnificent botanic garden is situated at the Gambarogno-side of the Lago-Maggiore, on a plain in the hills between Piazzogna and Vairano,.

In this place, Otto Eisenhut, a patient and talented cultivator of plants and trees has cultivated thousands of beautiful and colourful flowering plants like 950 types of camelias, 350 different magnolias, azaleas, peonies and Rhododendron on a surface of more than 17000 m2.

In addition, here grows also ivy, pines, juniper and other rare European and exotic coniferous trees.
Since the beginning of the year 2000 the park is led by the donation " parco botanico del gambarogno ", which is to guarantee the continuity of this attractive garden with its valuable botanic collection.
Visitors need one hour for the visit to this park, connoisseurs probably somewhat longer.
