Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève
Due to the unprecedented situation we all face due to COVID 19, we have closed the herbarium for all loans, exchanges and visits until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope that you can understand our decision, under the current circumstances.
With it’s around 6,000,000 specimens, the collection of the CJB is one of the most important in the world. It is derived from a long tradition of botany in Geneva that dates back to the 1800’s. It contains plants and fungi from the entire world, but in particular, those of the Mediterranean, the Near and Far East, South America and Europe.
The Herbarium is not open to the public. However, group visits are organized several times per year, in the framework of public visits.
