Compact and free this garden was interesting. They had several biomes represented and the open gardens outside were easy to get around. Not going to occupy a huge amount of time but a great place for a picnic or to sit and relax.

Its newly renovated glass houses are definitely worth seeing, and also the rest of the place is pretty cool. Especially when considering that it has free entrance :)

Really enjoyed these gardens. Same exhibit would have cost at least £15 a head int he UK but in Zurich it's free. Only downside is the cafe only accepts cash or contactless. So if you have a UK bank card and no cash, you're going without

This is a nice free attraction but definitely not a must see or do while in Zurich. There is a peaceful pond you can sit next to or pack a lunch near the pond. There are three buildings full of greenhouse plants to explore along with outdoor plants. Its a free attraction which is a perk

Over different levels do you find interesting plants and trees, with a small green house. Lovely to walk around, with one of the cities rivers next to it. There is a lot of seating all over the garden - especially when it's sunny, it's peaceful but great. I often take a book here and sit and read. It just looks a bit rundown, but I like it
