This is around 20 mins walk from the bus/rail station and a welcome break from the hustle of the main attractions. HIghly recommended for all ages.

We visited the gardens in March, which meant that unfortunately most of the plants weren't in bloom. The gardens are rather small, but to their credit they have packed a lot into the space that they have. The greenhouses in the upper section of the gardens are well worth a visit all year round, with a great array of exotic plant types.

We spent most of the day at the Botanical Garden, which is lovely. There are outdoor and indoor exhibits, and a nice variety of blooming plants and trees. Trees and plants are helpfully identified, and there's a wonderful path that parallels the Aare River. If you're looking for a tranquil place near nature, this is it. There's no charge for admission, and their bathrooms are easy to find.

You have to be prepared to walk up and down some big slopes, but the range of plants made it well worth while. Lots of hidden corners.

When we wait to check-in in our hotel we have the opportunity to pass an hour in this rare botanic garden with so many various plants. We enjoyed it!
