A place to take a stroll
Take your time
Landscape gardens like the Ermitage are like paintings that you can jump in to and explore, finding new surprises and food for thought at every twist and turn of the pathway.
The words that have been handed down from the 18th century hold true today: "One needs two hours to comfortably get around everywhere; and still it should be noted that one never has to walk the same path twice". While visiting the Ermitage, you will encounter many numbered signs which will point you to the sights of interest. You can find more information on each of the sights in the brochure "The Ermitage In Arlesheim". The brochure is available in the bookstore in Arlesheim. You can also buy the brochure directly from the Ermitage Foundation by clicking the following link.
