The Chinese Garden is a chinese garden in the Swiss city of Zürich. It is a gift from Zürich's Chinese partner town Kunming, dedicated to the Three Friends of Winter.Location and historyZürich's Chinese garden is located in the city's Seefeld quarter, next to the Centre Le Corbusier between Blatterwiese and Bellerivestrasse and near to the Zürichhorn on the right shore of Lake Zürich. Ending winter season, the garden will be opened on March 18 to October 18, daily from 11:00 (am) to 19:00 (7 pm), even on Sundays and public holidays. Verkehrsbetriebe Zürich tram lines 2 and 4, together with bus line 33, serve nearby stops at Höschgasse or Fröhlichstrasse, whilst bus lines 912 and 916 run from Bellevue to Chinagarten.The garden is a gift by Zürich's Chinese partner town Kunming, as thanks for Zürich's technical and scientific assistance in the development of the Kunming city drinking water supply and drainage. From May to October 1993, it was built under the direction of the Zürich garden department, in cooperation by garden experts and craftsmen from Kunming and Zürich, paid by Zürich city administration. Its official inauguration was in spring 1994, under participation of the now former mayor of Kunming City and Zürich's Josef Estermann. As from 2010 maintenance and operation are provided by Grün Stadt Zürich, the City of Zürich's Office of Parks and Open Spaces being a service of the Civil Engineering and Waste Management Department.

  • Had higher expectations and upon entry did not see but only a few trees, virtually no gardening landscape and structures under construction. Even though entry was only 4fr, it was not worth admittance...  more »
  • At the time, the Chinese garden was constructed and inaugurated, I was slightly acidic as old Lake Felderin with two small children: a part of the playground that was sacrificed then. Long gone are the times, renewed the playground, the China garden has proven itself as a beautiful and exotic oasis in the middle (geographically rather on the edge) the lively Blatter meadow. He is small and fine, somehow it reminded me of the "Japanese garden" in San Francisco, when I entered it long time ago for the first time.
