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...More

The botanical garden is a really beautiful garden in the city of Zurich, it's quite big and includes tropical green houses too. Worth of note, is that's for free, which is really nice since it allows to everyone to appreciate and enjoy spending some time...More

I visited in February so will acknowledge that the garden would not have been at its best. The garden is large enough for a morning or afternoon visit but will not occupy the whole day. The highlights must include the greenhouses which, being covered, make...More

Literally, this is an urban oasis. Smacked in the middle of Zürich, you find the serenity of expansive gardens, housing plants from throughout the world. If your day is getting busier than you like, make an escape to the botanical garden and recharge.

Somewhat tired & run down displays. Nice for a stroll - but I think after all the spectacular views we enjoyed while travelling through Switzerland we were left somewhat disappointed with our experience with botanic gardens.

Visited here in early September, and many items were out of bloom. Gardens were very nice, but we have been to over 25 gardens around the world and this is average. The three conservatory buildings were very enjoyable.

The botanical garden is really cool, with a range of flora from select locations across the globe - there are also three domed greenhouses home to a range of plants from the tropics
