“Hidden in some corner in Bern”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A visit to the Botanical Garden is free. It is a small spot hidden in a corner in Bern, close to one of the bridges over the river Aare.
Exhibits are grouped per region.

“Lovely Garden”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

In Bern for one day. Walked from Parlament to botanical gardens. Plants were lovely, but not amazing. Popular place for all ages. Places to sit and relax. The garden was not overly large, but had water features and a large variety of plants. For me even lovelier was the walk back to town along the river.

“Very beautiful and very varied garden”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

I have seen many botanical gardens but this is one of the most beautiful I have ever visited. I especially liked the alpine flowers of various Swiss regions. A great place to walk around for a while and marvel at the beauty of the flowers and trees. I liked the glass houses with tropical and desert plants too.

This is around 20 mins walk from the bus/rail station and a welcome break from the hustle of the main attractions. HIghly recommended for all ages.

“Probably beautiful in summer”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

We visited the gardens in March, which meant that unfortunately most of the plants weren't in bloom. The gardens are rather small, but to their credit they have packed a lot into the space that they have. The greenhouses in the upper section of the gardens are well worth a visit all year round, with a great array of exotic plant types.
