Intro

Roses and dahlias, medicinal plants, exotic blossoms and undemanding herbs: the Botanical Garden of Geneva houses over 16,000 species of plants. The exotic bird species in the zoo within the Botanical Garden are just as colorful as the flowers.

The Botanical Garden at the outskirts of Geneva is simultaneously an educational facility for the study of Botany and a popular local destination for relaxation. The large park with its plants, trees, flowers, special biotopes, greenhouses and a zoo has been open to the public since 1904.

The plant species are categorized according to their native habitat and there are information panels: the species on display include protected plants, medicinal and useful plants, garden plants, flowers and exotic blossoms.

The zoo houses endangered species, old strains of domesticated animals and spotted deer, ducks and flamingos in special water biotopes and exotic birds such as parrots and parakeets in aviaries.
