  • Succulent collection can look back on a long history. The establishment of the Institute goes back to the year 1929 and the city of Zurich can be proud of one of the world's largest and most succulent collection today. The greenhouses have remained since its inception at the same location at Mythenquai. Reach the collection can be car - parking is located between Lake Club Zurich, or Rowing Club and the Strandbad Mythenquai - bus No. 161 and 165 one reaches to the Succulents collection and tram no. 7, one is from the Brunau stop Road, on the Beach way, soon at the "Laijah". Under the direction of Mrs. Dr. Gabriela Wyss, collection the Succulents has experienced a "Renaissance" in the last nine years. The seven houses designed to peu à peu, better grouped plants according to countries and climatic regions and clearly documented for the curious visitor. Of course, here were the work and knowledge of area gardeners in the foreground. Who is geographically oriented searches the plants in the appropriately named departments - "North America", "South America", "Africa", "Madagascar" and the big plants inhabit the highest "House large plants". A special attention is given to even the wooden succulents and the epiphytes.

In addition they do not miss when he holds a public guided tour or a lecture. We often also come with our grandchildren to admire the wonderful world of plants. The "Laijah" is open daily from 9:00 to 16:30.
