Vogelsberg Garden Ulrichstein
Situated directly around the castle ruins in Ulrichstein, the Vogelsberg Garden impressively shows the diversity of the flora in the Vogelsberg. Botanical rarities can be found in various beds, a small field shows annually changing field crops, the visitor can discover animals, a typical farm garden, fruit trees and even a medicinal herb garden.
On 7 May 2003 the Verein der Freunde und Förderer des Vogelsberggartens e.V. (VFFV) was founded, which takes care of the financing and maintenance of the area. Also important are godmothers and godparents who support the facilities with voluntary care and management.
Right next door you can visit the cemetery of honour of the war dead of the Second World War from all over Oberhessen. An approx. 800m long paved circular path leads the visitor through the 6ha large complex.
On the 600m high volcanic cone one finds one thing above all - peace. And you can enjoy the view.
The Schlossberg can be entered at any time, parking is available in front of the town hall (Lindenplatz) only a few minutes away.
