The garden is beautiful even during the winter months. It is not as magnificent as it would be in spring since there are not too many colors apart from green and brown but isn't this part of the cycle of nature? It is still nice to admire the various plants, flowers and trees and of course the tropical gardens, which are protected and maintained in green houses that provide the necessary environmental conditions.

There's nothing else I can say. I visited the Botanical Garden during my trip to Swiss and I was impressed by the huge variety of plans, flowers and trees and how peaceful the place is.

October is never the best time to visit a garden, but the selection of plants seemed haphazard and poorly laid out. Regardless, I appreciated the variety of winding paths through them. The treat is the hothouses, which you don't often get free access to.

We like to visit botanic gardens as we live in Kew. We had been to the lovely collection of succulents at Sukkulenten-Sammlung on the west bank of the lake and thought it was superb. The botanic garden was a real disappointment.

It is very small and has a nasty building in the middle of the gardens. The interpretation is poor and the advertised shop was not open on a Sunday as the library was shut.

The greenhouses were a little better but all in all it was not really worth a visit.
