This place is bit hidden and not very easy to find. I seems a hidden gem that is mostly used by locals. It is beautiful and nice just to walk through the area and see and enjoy all those plants. It is not made a a "pure'" attraction and you cannot expect guided tours or a museum style. It is a local Botanical garden in a very nice area and with beautiful plants. A place just to enjoy and relax.

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
