    The local group of the Federal Nature Conservation in Mindelheim (district Unterallgäu) is particularly active! This group of nature lovers has created a nature education garden in many hours of volunteer work to provide visitors with information about native plants. The nature education center was opened in 2007 and since then also expanded. Today the garden (actually it is a whole garden show) offers opportunities for learning, playing and resting for children and adults. If you would like to take a trip to Mindelheim, you could combine a visit to the natural science garden with a visit to the Mindelburg. The garden is not far away from the Mindelburg, at the foot of the castle hill
    Visitors to the nature education center Mindelheim leave the car best in the parking lot at the outdoor pool and then go south past the outdoor pool, the miniature golf course and the pizzeria "Pizzobello", finally a piece along the edge of the forest - and then the natural idyll is already reached! The nature education garden extends between forest edge and meadows along a stream. The creek is included in the area. The center of the educational garden is an artificial pond, the "Himmelsteich", a biotope for dragonflies and other insects that love moisture; On the bank of the pond and in other places of the site are benches. On the circular route through the nature education center, the visitor passes various carefully created biotopes, for example on a rockery planted with alpine flowers (eg gentian), wet meadows and hedges, a meadow orchard and various flowerbeds (troll flowers, mullein and much more more...).

    In the entire Allgäu and Swabia is known as far no natural science garden. From this situation and the reports of similar institutions, the idea arose to realize such a facility in Mindelheim. The nature education garden has the task of comprehensively conveying connections in nature. The aim is to inspire the sensitization and information of young people and also adults for the beauties of nature and to explain the presentation of specifics by means of examples.
    On a hike over the Mindelburg definitely worth a visit! :-)
