Amazing collections of orchids and the kind Inayat Olmedo who looks after the orchids was super duper kind to give us a tour of the collection. If anyone is into flowers and Orchids more specifically then this is the place to go visit.

Although very small, if you are in the area, it is a lovely respite. It is part of the University of Basel and it seems there is work being done. And it is free.

This is a very small botanical garden compared to those I'm familiar with. There is also a wild quality to the display. I'm a short person and I had to duck around plants in the Tropical house. Maybe it is intended to be natural? In...More
