Biblical Garden

Now the Lord God had planted a garden
in the east, in Eden...

We invite you to take a stroll through our Biblical Garden. Its desertlike design is reminiscent of the Biblical landscape.

Immerse into the world of the Bible:

If you understand some German, our audio guided tour "Beauty of Creation" will make the stories behind the plants come alive for you.

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.
