Just a stone’s throw away from upper Lake Zurich, the 75,000 square-meter park of the tree museum welcomes you to stroll, see and enjoy. It’s here that the landscape architect Enzo Enea brought his passion to life: In an open-air museum with over 50 trees lovingly nurtured together with a feel for space and nature’s natural works of art. Since 2013 the exhibits include contemporary sculptures of well-known artists. These works of art create a subtle dialogue with the gardens and broaden the overall allure of Enea’s landscape design concept. The current exhibition includes sculptures by Jaume Plensa, Barry Flanagan, Richard Erdman, Jörg Immendorff.
The famous landscape architect Enzo Enel in fact had two passions: Trees and art. He’s been collecting trees and sculptures for years, and since 2010 his collection is open to viewers in the unique tree museum in Rapperswil-Jona. Meanwhile, more than 50 trees grow here, part of which are more than a century old.
The 25 different species all stem from our climate zone and, with great feeling for shape and space, have been beautifully arranged on the lawn. The carefully placed sculptures dotted here and there give visitors the feeling of moving through an open-air space of exceptional natural beauty. An idyllic 75,000 square-meter large park with many other trees surrounds the museum - and the modern architecture of the reception area is yet another eye-catching feature by the landscape architect.
