The Ethnobotanical Gardens

Les jardins ethnobotaniques

On the occasion of our 200th Anniversary and the 6th Global Botanic Gardens Congress, from the 26th June 2017 come and visit our new permanent exhibition “Ethnobotanical Gardens” to discover the numerous connections that man had and still has today with the world of plants, sometimes without even realizing.

Did you know for instance that the Velcro of your shoes is a Swiss invention inspired by the fruits of an edible plant, the burdock ? That the world’s most expensive spice comes from a variety of crocus cultivated in Upper Valais? Or that chewing gums were originally made from a vegetable gum ?

Many discoveries await you in our gardened spaces which are organized around four main themes:
