With a tiny museum and educational facility in its centre, this oasis offers a beautiful place to stop and enjoy the plants.

Small but interesting botanical garden with plants divided into sections - ponds with waterlilies, medicinal, alpine, rock garden, etc. and beautiful trees. There is a stunning Japanese white magnolia near the main entrance that blooms in May (short-lived flowers). Climb up to the top past...More

The exhibition about grains was interesting, but the garden in itself is messy and not very well maintained. Many plants were burnt and dry. The fact that the gardens are on a sharp slope, with narrow alleys, doesn't help feeling good.

Found the botannical gardens and enjoyed a through walk - charmed by the ascending pathways full of flora and fauna and then at the top, amazing views of Lausanne and Lac Leman... loved the freshness and beauty of it all!

If you go from port to center or vice versa it is the perfect stop on the way. Many interesting plants, scents of spring and summer. A nice observation deck leading to winding paths among large and old trees.

We past by the botanic garden for a walk in a sunny day. Compare with the near Milan park, the Jardin looks not well maintained! Plants and trees are left alone! Except the walk and the nice view at the top, nothing else is worth...More

Walking in the Botanic Gardens in Lausanne is an instant cure for stress. Lots of winding paths with views of the the lake around the corner and the sound of children laughing and playing come to you in waves that lift your mood.
