Chalet and Garden of the Countess of Edla
This Alpine style building, perfectly integrated into the surrounding nature, was built by Ferdinand II and his second wife, Elise Hensler, the Countess of Edla, between 1864 and 1869. The garden gathers collections of camellias, rhododendrons, azaleas and ferns, among others.
