Plant enthusiasts will find in Ausserberg a carefully landscaped garden of medicinal plants, in which around 40 medicinal herbs are grown. The garden is like a natural pharmacy, which finds its application in tinctures, teas, herbal oils and salves. The herb garden is accessible on foot from the train station Ausserberg within 15 minutes.
