On the grounds of Kromsdorf Renaissance Palace (Schloss Kromsdorf) you can find a collection of 64 stone busts created in the years 1670-1730. I came across this garden while cycling along the Ilm Valley cycling route (Ilmtal-Radweg) in the German state of Thuringia.
This garden seen next to the minster of Mittelzell is a reconstruction of the herb garden which was mentioned in the poem ‘De cultura hortorum‘ written by Walafrid Strabo in the years between 830 and 840.

Next to the Belvedere gardens there is another garden worth a visit. The botanical garden of the university of Vienna offers a broad variety of plants with informative descriptions. On the photo above one can see that this garden is divided by a wall from the Belvedere Gardens.
