If you like to see weeds this place is for you. There are some flowers to see, however the greenhouses are closed for 2012 (construction). Can not complain about price tho - free. Allot 30 minutes and you will have seen everything that there is to see.

I was there at the "open day" to find myself in a large garden, no real information and no real appeal. The garden is apparently build to give biologists a nice time, but for people that like nature and the outdoors, you better go in the forest

A real jem in the midst of residential, free with Zurich Card and fun to stroll amidst all the eating and museums. Will work well for kids as well.

The open space and variety of plants and flowers that depending on the time of year flourish. Worth also to spend the day in a spring ,summer ,autumm or winter time just enjoying the peaceful atmosphere
