However, it is worth a visit, as it is such an exciting place - full of interesting architecture, sculptures, a shop and an on-site restaurant - the Roth Bar & Grill, which serves delicious, locally sourced food. One of the cooks can be seen in the top left pic, picking fresh herbs from their raised vegetable beds!
Even the bar is a work of art, created by the son and grandson of artist Dieter Roth, as a tribute to him. You can see, above right, and middle left, that it is made of scavenged materials - a central motif in his work. This theme continues throughout the interiors - look at the washing facilities for the toilets (above top right)!
The fabulous landscaped gardens, designed by internationally renowned Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf, look their best this time of year. At the end of the Oudolf field of perennial flowers, is this unusual temporary structure, The Radic Pavilion - see below. It is made from fibreglass and designed by Smiljan Radic. I took a walk inside - it has a built-in bar and would make a great party venue...
