Musee Et Jardin Botanique Lausanne, Lausanne Reviews
Great little place in Lausanne. If you want some calmness head there. There is a small museum that is well done. A room with cacti is also pretty need with different specimen. The garden is well taken care of and is very charming. I would happily go back again .
Unfortunately they seem to be having some building work done at the moment so it wasn't the best time to visit. Everything seems to be suffering a bit even the cacti in the greenhouse (felt sorry for the plants!). The best part was the frogs and Lillie's in the pond. It will be nice to see what they do with it once the building work is done.
You feel isolated, bird are singing, nature smell nice. Flowers and path are blending very nicely with explanation or names of each plants. This is a calm and relaxing place to escape from the city. Quite easy to access.
Very nice park and gardens. Museum small and beautiful.
Although the first recorded private botanical garden in Lausanne dates from the end of the seventeenth century, the first cantonal botanical garden had its origin in the donation by Baron Albert de Büren of his collection of 1700 plants to the state in 1873. This was to serve as the basis for the creation of a botanical garden by the canton. At first, there was a temporary placement at Champ-de-l 'Air near what is now the University Hospital of Lausanne. In 1890, the collection was moved to the site of the newly constituted University of Lausanne, below the Faculty of Chemistry and Physics, rue de Couvaloup, where it was essentially used for the teaching of pharmacy and visited mainly by students. In 1946, the garden was moved to its actual location, Avenue de Cour 14, on the south slope of Montriond-le-Crêt, a hill in the Parc de Milan, between the Lausanne train station and Lake Léman. The design and creation of this new garden was the fruit of the close collaboration between the architect, Alphonse Laverrière, the professor Florian Cosandey, and the gardener, Charles Lardet. The plan for this new site included alpine rock gardens and a pool dominated by a cliff made of strata of rock and a cascade falling into the basin. The stone came from the Jura Mountains above Bière but the quarrying and assembly were made more difficult than custom by the strict requirements of the job. No marks of tools or broken fragments were allowed to be seen in the finished work, which must appear natural and as if part of the original hill site.
