Botanischer Garten, Zurich

(260+ reviews on the web)
Garden Nature / Park
Examine wild plants in an unconventional layout and bubble-shaped greenhouses filled with exotic species at Botanischer Garten. Run by Zurich's flagship university and developed near the edge of the campus, this oasis of greenery breaks away from the traditional design of other central European gardens by growing wild species of plants in an informal layout. Gardeners avoid systematic flowerbeds and allow nearly 9,000 different wild plants to bloom scattered across a total area of over 5.3 hectares (13 acres). Three tropical domes create ideal conditions for growing exotic plants from around the world, providing visitors with a chance to experience diverse natural ecosystems near the heart of a major urban center. Add Botanischer Garten to your Zurich travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Zurich tour planner.

  • One of the most relaxing and beautiful places in Zurich.. great exhibit as well.
  • Beautiful place to be
  • In the greenhouse of the Dome you can walk by a zone to another to find the appropriate plants and animals. It's almost like a vacation. A visit is worth always no matter what season.
