it the gardeners/gardening center of the city of Zurich. There is a tropical house and a palmgarden, nice birds, fishes and turtles. Currently there is a show about urban gardening. In the summer there is a nice park outside as well. In spring on specific weekend Stadtgaertnerei sells seedling including some rare or rediscovered plants/vegetables. Entrance is free

Stadtgaertnerei is a beautiful park and botanic garden which includes an outdoor area and tropical glass houses. The place is free to visit and it seems to be off the beaten tourist track so highly recommended for park and nature lovers.

There is a small place, with which you can only lose your time. There is nothing to see. You better go to the old botanical garden! There it is relly beautiful!
