  • I loved this place "the Chinese Garden." I lived in Zurich for a month this summer and would walk there almost every single day. 
  • It's an extremely small. Absolutely nothing special. The park itself where the Chinese is much more beautiful.

  • My husband and I were one in July for half day in the China garden. The China Garden was relatively difficult to find, but the search was worth it! The entrance is very cheap. You can stroll through the enchanting garden and some bank invites you to linger. All trees, pavilions and water associated with care. There are also rock blocks. The Koi in the water are huge and very photogenic. Chinese craftsmen have helped in the construction of the China garden what can be seen on the loving carving. It is worth to be read also the history of the emergence and formation.
