Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève
When visiting the greenhouses of the CJB, you will feel yourself transported far from Geneva and you may be surprised, in particular, by the ambient heat and the humidity of our tropical greenhouses.
In these exotic surroundings, amongst plants of unexpected shapes or with iridescent and delicate colours, you may have an irresistible dream of voyaging for a long time...
These plant species derived from the different continents all have something in common: in order to survive and prosper in our local climate they need protection, under glass, for all or part of the year.

The Greenhouses at Pregny, located on the hill of Chambésy, bring together: the sector which produces the plantsused in the main collection of flowerbeds and for the decoration of the Garden, an orangery for the over-wintering of exotic shrubs that are not frost resistant, as well as a collection of ancient varieties of fruit trees, inherited from the former owner, Baron Edmond de Rothschild.
These Greenhouses can be visited as part of the guided tours cycles on offer at the CJBG all year round.
