HOW TO VISIT THE GARDEN IN ONE HOUR

One hour
Half a day
One day

On leaving Albert-Thomas Place, the large pond one discovers at the bottom of the Rockery (previously known as the Alpine Garden), is an invitation to climb through the cascades and streams that snake around the rocks and discover the montane flora from around the world. Once can also see the alpine species that are protected in Switzerland.

Above the slopes of the Rockery, one finds the Tropical Greenhouses with its special collections (palm trees, carnivorous plants, succulent plants, Bromeliaceae Greenhouse, Gesneriaceae, Volcanic Greenhouse, etc.) and the Winter Garden, in which there is a panorama of useful tropical plants (Bananas, Vanilla, Cotton, Tea plants….) in a setting that is both sober and aesthetic.

In the direction of the lake, and parallel to the avenue of plane trees (majestic trees that are 280 years old!) the Ethnobotanical Gardens are presented didactically giving access to a wide range of plant species that have been used by man through the ages. These include alimentary, medicinal, handicraft and industrial uses (perfumes, fibres, oils, sugars, dyes, etc.).
