Lovely Oasis

This is a lovely little park with tropical greenhouses. We especially liked the colorful birds that aren't afraid of humans.

These gardens are a little out of town although easily reachable by car or tram and definitely worth a visit. There is a wealth of plants laid out in a sympathetic manner and a wonderful iris garden modelled on a Japanese theme. Access is free. In the gardens there is also a carriage museum and easy access to a medicinal... More

These gardens are well worth a visit and make for a pleasant morning stroll around. There are lots of plants to see as well as some quaint old buildings. It's great that it's free to access.

When I visited there were still plants and flowers blooming and the staff were busy clearing weeds and mowing much of the expansive grounds. There are many trails located here in the park and there are several levels as well. The upper level seems to mostly be... More

Large ponds, the biggest wooden dinosaur I have ever seen, a wonderful 19 cent. carousel, plenty of seating around when you need a rest,, a restaurant, the list goes on. Highly recommended and...

A lovely and quiet garden in the middle of Basel. Special rare plants from all over the world. In the big greenhouse there are rare birds and reptiles also.

This is a gem that is well worth finding. There are lots of parts and a whole day can easily be spent here _ wonderful irises, rose, landscaped gardens and children's areas. Sophisticated tea gardens, old mills, herb gardens and peace and quiet.

This is a great place to spend a morning or an afternoon. Although it is popular it feels quite tranquil. There is a childrens play area, ponds with decking, paths, gardens and greens. There is so much to see.
