Pretty area! The park next to this is a nice relaxing area to people watch or read a book. Switzerland is a gorgeous country! I enjoyed my time hiking and exploring the area. This is an absolutely gorgeous area.

This is the Old Botanical Garden of Zurich, not to be confused with the newer one that is located on the other side of the river. This one is right in the middle of town, an easy walk from many locations. But it is also...More
