“Flowers, flowers, flowers! What a great park!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Seleger Moor is easy to find in the area, as there are signs everywhere to bring you there. The park is in a bug area where there are rhododendron, azalea and other flowers blooming during the months of May and June.
To walk along the main path takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. There are also smooth paths you can walk closer to the flowers.
In a part of the park there are three ponds where you can see frogs swimming around. Of course you can hear them also.
Great photographs are guaranteed here.

“Seleger Moor - Rhododendron and Azalea showcase”
Reviewed May 27, 2009

Seleger Moor, located at Rifferswil in Canton Zurich, is best visited during the rhododendron and azalea season of May and June.

The extensive park is filled with the heady scent of azaleas. The swathes of rhododendrons are cleverly planted to ensure that there are a variety of differently coloured blooms and that different bushes are flowering at different times.

Effective use has been made of the mature trees to combine with the ponds, water lilies and rhododendrons in giving the different areas of the extensive park their own identities.

The handkerchief tree was in full bloom during my visit. Fortunately a signpost had been added, otherwise this beautiful sight would easily be overlooked amongst all the other magnificent scenery.

I only stumbled across this attraction by accident. Having visited, I now understand why so many visitors make the pilgrimage from Germany and Austria to visit this showcase. Seleger Moor fully justifies its international reputation.
