.... spend a relaxing hour in the botanical gardens nearby. The gardens are beautifully kept and a joy to visit. I particularly like the hot houses with tropical and semi-tropical plants. The sense garden is also worth a visit if you want a really sensual experience. The animals in the enclosures are have always been reluctant to socialise when I've... More

I have only visited three botanical gardens in my life and this was the best of all the three. The garden was very big and they had three green houses if I'm not mistaken. They even had some sort of small 'zoo'. When I went there, I even encountered peacocks roaming free haha. I wish I had gone there during... More

My wife and I spent about 3 hours strolling through these wonderful gardens. Tons of variety from all over the world. Very well manicured and maintained. Very relaxing and its free! Next time we'd pack a picnic and a good book and spend the better part of a day. Great escape within the city.

We stopped by the botanical garden to have a picnic lunch and it was wonderful. It was a beautiful sunny day and there were children on the carrousel and animals playing in the zoo. We saw some goats practice fighting on top of a fallen log that were so cute. It was a delightful visit.

There were not many floral displays, considering the other wonderful floral displays throughout Geneva , this was very disappointing.

Seriously if you are in Geneva, you should visit this place. It's simple, quite, relaxing , diverse, and informative. Try to give your visit there enough time as you will need it to be able to check every section in it. Try to tour it all as it is worth it. Last advise, don't limit yourself to the obvious places...

you can spend hours here. the kids have so much to do, looking at the animals, playing in park area, riding the carousel and discovering plants. the adults will love the greenhouse and other exotic and medicinal plants. there is a good cafe with terrace to spend time lounging on a sunny day. a good half-day required

Really incredible botanic garden to visit the all year round. A must to visit in Geneva. Very easy to access and with a tunnel under the street (rue de Lausanne) to the lake's banks. Beautiful ! Also some animals for the children (black geese, ducks, goats etc)
