A green oasis to daydream.

We found this park by chance, walking around and following our feet! It was a really nice surprise... read more

The Zurich Botanical Garden is a wonderful compact, but very comprehensive garden. There are many spots throughout the garden where you can just sit and enjoy a peaceful lunch among the trees. There are three glass domes with a large variety of plants from around the world. Enjoyed sitting by one of the ponds trying to spot the frogs. A lovely way to spend an hour or two.

This could have been an attractive spot in Zurich. Unfortunately, we felt there is no interest to make it a tourist attraction site. The Entrance is free of charge. There were no sign to guide yo through your visit. There are some good plant but lake organization. We enjoyed our walk but it could been much bettre.

The garden has several different areas with lots of different plants. We saw locals enjoying the sun bathing on grass, tadpoles swimming, it's a very relaxing and fun place. The tropical plants domes were very interesting too. Free to visit. Definitely worth visiting.

This is a lovely gem in Zurich - beautiful and peaceful. Skip the restaurant - it is terrible but enjoy the park, bring a picnic if you can - sit on the grass and enjoy this precious place. Do visit the greenhouses. You can easily spend an afternoon or a full morning here, sooooo pretty

Remember, these comments are for tourists, not people from the city about which we write. For native citizens of Zurich, by all means go to the Botanical Garden--a great education for your children and a nice diversion for all.

But for travelers, I must report that this garden is a) a challenge to reach; b) small and not highly varied as such places go. In no way does this place measure up to the likes of Brooklyn Botanical Garden or Kew Gardens in England, etc. As such, you should not put it high on your list of things to see in Zurich.

There is a modest open area and, as I recall, a couple of hothouse environments growing specialized plants, but certainly not much that is extensive. Actually, very few people were here on a Sunday, which to me is a clear sign that not even Zurich-ers are much enamored of it.
