We found a trip in the botanical gardens very interesting and informative. An excellent variety of plant sets and even an exotic hothouse. After you have spent a leisurely hour or so wandering amongst the plants visit the little cafe in the grounds and take in the excellent views.

A visit to the Botanical Garden is free. It is a small spot hidden in a corner in Bern, close to one of the bridges over the river Aare.
Exhibits are grouped per region.

In Bern for one day. Walked from Parlament to botanical gardens. Plants were lovely, but not amazing. Popular place for all ages. Places to sit and relax. The garden was not overly large, but had water features and a large variety of plants. For me even lovelier was the walk back to town along the river.

I have seen many botanical gardens but this is one of the most beautiful I have ever visited. I especially liked the alpine flowers of various Swiss regions. A great place to walk around for a while and marvel at the beauty of the flowers and trees. I liked the glass houses with tropical and desert plants too.

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.
