A very beautiful garden, quite small but full of different scenic corners. don't miss the green houses, and especially the tropical one! It is open for free, and makes a lovely place to wonder about in nice weather. Highly recommended!

Amazing place to visit for people who want to see different plants - the range of plants in the garden is good to keep you engrossed for couple of hours

We spent a couple hours visiting the tropical domes and walking around the gorgeous grounds (lot of hills, wear good shoes). Unfortunately, many of the information cards are not in English and are too technical for a basic German speaker. There is a small café.

When you're bored with walking by the lake, this might be the next best thing. A pleasant way to kill an hour or two.

I was there a few days ago and it is great to walk around at different stages of growth in the gardens. I go there every few weeks and it is great.

The botanical garden is located in a nice residential area of Zurich. It has two main buildings/greenhouses, which are lush with orchids and tropical plants.

Spring has finally sprung here in Zurich & whilst the blossom trees are a stunning sight in the streets of Zurich, these gardens (which have been extensively replanted in recent times & therefore not nearly developed enough to either identify much, nor indeed admire). However...More
