Old Botanical Garden, Zurich
Stop by Old Botanical Garden, a verdant oasis in the heart of the city dating back to 1837. Once a private herbarium, the gardens expanded over the years but were unfortunately surrounded by large buildings that created shady conditions and hindered plant growth. In 1976, the botanical garden relocated to a sunnier and more spacious part of the city, leaving behind the old botanical garden, which is now used as a recreation ground and arboretum. Explore the fascinating medieval herb garden--otherwise known as the “Gessner Garden”--to learn about herbs and plants used by 16th-century healers. The palm house, a now-protected building, hosts a wide range of activities, with regular concerts, theater shows, and various exhibitions taking place throughout the year.

With the top platform interesting view.
Jardim Botanico menor, com um platõ com canteiros, bancos e uma escultura. Lá de cima a vista panorâmica não é tão boa, pois tem várias árvores altas que obstruem a visão. Vamos se você quiser um luga... more »Botanical Garden smaller, with a plateau with flower beds, benches and a sculpture. Upstairs the panoramic view is not as good as it has several tall trees blocking the view. Come on if you want a quiet place, found
A lovely paradise in the middle of a busy city where you can relax on the small fields. Also an interesting collection of plants well described allowing you to wonder of from the chaos of the city, toilets are for free. However, at night is closed and there are no snack shop there.
Very nice old park. Many plants although need a bit of tidying up. Very charming place.
