Botanical Garden Reviews & Ratings

  • We actually wanted to go there to have Breakfast in the cafe, unfortunately it's opening hours are only from Mai - September. All in all, the Garden is very nice and is located directly next to the river.

  • I can delve into the 'detailed' details, but a short description would be the following: 3 large greenhouses with tropical and temperate environment along with 4 small ones. A good collection of insect-eating plants and some very old trees with one of them having a girth of an average cars length. What a sight!

  • There are many plant species to see in the pleasant environment.

  • Beautiful. I love all the random chairsso that we can just sit and breathe.

  • Small botanical garden with some glasshouses, their Focus lies in palms, sukkulents, orchids and carnivorous plants. Outside is nice tree collection at a sunshine spot of Berne. Directly at Lorrainebridge, shortcut into the Aare Valley. With Cafe and restrooms.
