“A very impressive collection of plants from all over the World”

Botanischer Garten der Universitat
Ranked #20 of 157 things to do in Basel
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Firstly, as a scientist, I was delighted to see every single plant properly labelled with genus, species, family, and often sub-family names. The tropical houses are a delight for children since they house not only plants but also bright coloured birds from the tropics, including, unless I am mistaken, a splendid starling. There are several other glass houses for xerophytes (cacti and such). Outdoors there is an amazing collection of trees, and shrubs, all within smallish garden. Free entry and well worth a visit.

This place is small, but has lots of little nooks and crannies to explore. I really like the succulent room, with huge cacti! It's a relaxing place, free, and hardly ever busy. Just up the street from the hospital on Petersgraben and hang a right. You'll eventually accidentally find it.

A great place to relax for a bit after exploring Basel. The greenhouses are beautiful, and in the main tropical house, there's a nice little glass staircase as well. The gardens are kept nicely, and there'a a great variety of plants and wonderful trees.

Think of Kew Gardens for your vest pocket. The place is very well kept and they have some amazing plants. It's right next to the Spalentor but a little hidden away.
