Discover Alpine Treasures: Exhibits, Gardens, and Gastronomy

Botanic Garden Saussurea: Explore the rich flora that the alpine region has to offer. Witness a collection of rare and beautiful alpine plants from different mountain areas around the world.

The Saussurea Alpine Botanical Garden, located at a staggering 2,173 meters above sea level, is Europe’s highest botanical garden. It’s a place where nature lovers can explore and learn about the fascinating alpine flora of the region. Nestled in the heart of the Aosta Valley, this garden serves as a unique junction of tourism, scientific research, and natural beauty.

Botanic Garden Saussurea

Botanic Garden Saussurea

Established in 1987, the Saussurea Alpine Botanical Garden started as a modest tourist attraction near the Skyway Monte Bianco’s mid-point station. However, it rapidly gained recognition for its scientific contributions, particularly after becoming part of the protected Pavillon du Mont Fréty area within Espace Mont Blanc.

The garden’s name pays tribute to the flower “Saussurea alpina”, the Alpine Saw-wort, named after the Geneva scientist Horace Bénédict de Saussure. He played a significant role in promoting the first ascent of Mont Blanc in 1786.

Saussurea’s layout spans an impressive 7,000 square meters, with two distinct sections.

  • Artificial Rock Gardens: The first section meticulously cultivates all species in artificial rock gardens, each separated according to geographical origin.
  • Natural Alpine Pasture: The second section preserves the original alpine pasture, creatively mimicking the typical mountainous environments. This dual approach ensures a rich biodiversity, offering glimpses into different global ecosystems.

Beginning in July, the garden springs to life with vibrant blossoms, and in some years, you can still witness flowering species, including exotic ones, until the end of September. A captivating collection of around 800 species finds their home here, with many sourced from other esteemed gardens and universities across Europe and beyond.

Cave Mont Blanc and Experimental High Altitude Winery: Learn about the wine-making tradition in the Alps and enjoy a glimpse into the Cave Mont Blanc, a unique high-altitude winery.

The Summit – Helbronner Peak: Stand atop the Helbronner peak and feel the rush of the Alpine breeze. Capture the magnificence of the Italian, Swiss, and French Alps. Gaze upon the Mont Blanc and even the Matterhorn on a clear day.

End your journey in the heart of Courmayeur. Browse the local shops, soak in the sun on a terrace, or relish the chocolate-box chalets and boutiques.
