The House Nussbaum (nut tree) can be found on Spitalmühlweg in the Lindau district of Aeschach. On this site, the renowned garden designer Wolfgang Seethaler has created a number of different gardens, from the romantic to the modern.
A garden is no museum
The House Nussbaum was built in 1895 with a country garden that fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape of orchards and fields of grazing cows. It even provides a home for a flock of happy, free-range hens. The garden is at its best from mid-May to the end of September. But it’s still worth visiting outside this season: in April it is full of spring flowers, while in October and early November the asters are in bloom. 50 different autumn asters and a few late-summer false asters adorn the aster bed, which looks good in spring but is at its peak in October.
Nut tree in the garden
Seethaler’s house is called “Zum Nussbaum” (at the nut tree) because gathering nuts is one of the garden designer’s jobs in autumn. You are guaranteed to be amazed by these beautiful gardens. This rural idyll and garden paradise was re-laid in 2004. The garden is visible from the footpath, but it is not open to the public.
However, it is possible to book a guided tour. Wolfgang Seethaler also organises and leads tours of other gardens.
Tip: You can reach the garden with bus number 2 from the Gstäudweg stop, or bus number 4 from the Aeschacher Friedhof stop
