Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève
The large glass dome, near to the Route de Lausanne, is designated as the Temperate House and it contains Mediterranean type vegetation from Australia, South Africa and the subtropical regions of Asia and America as well as from the Mediterranean region itself. You can get close to these plants by following a small path which winds through the palm trees and elegant tree-ferns.
A special place in this greenhouse is set aside for the cacti and succulents, with two landscapes (American and African) facing each other. In winter, this greenhouse also houses some of our oldest and most remarkable trees, grown in frost-resistant pots, such as the centuries-old Podocarpus.
