Long Description:
The Garden for the Blind is 2,000 square metres in size and was inaugurated in 1983 to enable also blind persons to enjoy the flora of the Rheinaue Leisure Park. There is a bronze slab near the entrance with a map giving an overview of the entire garden. Of course, inscriptions are also in braille, as are the explanations of the names of the plants, eg. thyme, peony, carnation, rosemary. Touching the plants is explicitly encouraged.
