  • This is no Enid Haupt conservatory, but makes for a lovely pit stop while exploring the old town. The water lillies were on the cusp of blooming during my visit, and the conservatories were virtually ...  more »
  • Worth a visit it if you have a little time, especially the area of the birds, where you really have the feeling of being in the middle of the jungle. It is free, so take a walk, sit on a bench and drink, is a good plan.

  • On a day where the sparrows of the roof fall is the (also) you can relax in this small but beautiful landscaped botanical garden. There is a nice app for even. If it's so hot, is a visit to the tropical greenhouse extra recommended. Fun there are besides the plants where you (or flowers) the birds. Of course you take Victoriakas visit and take on a bench sit and enjoy what you see. With the app in hand you can each see what plants there.

  • I was blown away by this botanical garden. The selection of plants they have in such a small area is astounding, as is the care taken for the multiple hot houses. They tropical house was especially impressive with the multiple bird species and turtles. Top notch place; very cozy, well-loved, and you can tell !
  • A small quiet garden . Here you can enjoy the plants, eat a sandwich or read a book. I recomand it . There is no entrance fee
  • Beautiful garden! It is so peaceful and calm. The collection of plants from all over the world is amazing!
  • This is my favourite part of the city. Almost every biome is represented on these grounds, including a 2-storey rain forest with a glass staircase to see above the canopy.
  • Pleasant oasis in the middle of the cityscape. The tropical house with free roaming birds is a particular favourite. Displays in german.

Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.
