An Unusual and Surprising Garden
A unique garden based on Japanese pruning techniques, designed to showcase a miniature world brought to life by permanent railway traffic.

In this space, everything is there to create the illusion of a miniature garden: the landscaper must succeed in integrating the different scales of the site: the surrounding undulations, the mature trees, the collection of Japanese maples, the dwarfed trees.

It's the Niwaki pruning of the plants, which creates different perspectives, that gives the garden its structure.

A world full of surprises: Discover the expertise of our model-makers through the many cinematic nods in the scenery, the misappropriated signs, the humorous sketches...

Our region in miniature: the main landmarks of the region in miniature: the St Lattier freeway suspension bridge, St Antoine abbey, the Pont en Royans suspension houses...

Enter the railway garden and let yourself be transported by the enchantment of nature!

Musikiosk: the Jardin Ferroviaire expands to include an unusual new area
This new garden offers a journey based on the discovery of musical, visual and sound structures, mainly created from recycled materials. This extension is an integral part of the visit to the Jardin Ferroviaire, extending the tour by 30 to 45 minutes.
