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.

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.
