The highest located rose garden in Europe, a fragrant highlight in South Tyrol, displays more than 250 different types of roses.
In Bulla (Pufels), between the Val Gardena valley and the Alpe di Siusi area, there is a unique botanical treasure that attracts many visitors every year. At the Hotel Uhrerhof, right in the middle of the South Tyrolean mountains at 1,500 m a.s.l., 6,000 rose bushes grow on the slopes of the associated garden. It is the Uhrerhof Rosarium, the highest rose garden in Europe!
The natural highlight fascinates with its blaze of colours and the fragrances that await visitors here. Owner Lotte Zemmer looks after this scented oasis, which was created in 2009, with dedication: A path leads through the terraced garden, several benches invite visitors to absorb everything calmly. Among the climbing and noble roses, shrub and bush roses, you can also find some sculptures and colourful glass balls. "Ein Garten ohne Blumen ist wie ein Leben ohne Liebe" (a garden without flowers is like a life without love) is written on a trough at the entrance to the Rosarium...
In 2011, a rose was even baptised at the Uhrerhof Rosarium: "Dolomiti" is the name of the white-pink beauty. And how to reach the Rosarium? It is located on the slope of the Hotel Uhrerhof in Bulla, a district of Ortisei in Val Gardena, which administratively belongs to the municipality of Castelrotto. There is a car park at the hotel, and Bulla can also be reached by bus no. 355.
