Herb garden at the “Santa Isabel”

Santa Isabel

What would a delicious saltimbocca be without real sage leaves? Or a cucumber salad without dill? Fresh herbs not only give the food a tasty seasoning, they also have many healing properties: rosemary promotes digestion, sage relaxes cramps and basil strengthens the stomach. Popular herbs include dill, chives, lovage or thyme and rich-in-vitamin-C cress. This aromatic plant even germinates on a moist paper towel. The best-selling culinary herb is parsley, by the way. It grows almost anywhere: in the garden, on the terrace, on the balcony and on window sills.Europa-Park’s in-house herb garden at the “Santa Isabel” hotel has many a fragrant herb to discover, including sage, rosemary, thyme, grey santolina and lemon balm. The chefs of Europa-Park’s hotels often use fragrant herbs from their own on-site garden to season their freshly served dishes.
