Jardin Botanique (Botanical Gardens) Overview

More than just another one of the many attractions in Geneva, the Jardin Botanique is home to one of the largest herbariums in the world! This lovely alpine garden is a collection of over 16,000 species of plants, herbs, shrubs, and trees, which is always a refreshing treat to the eyes.

Wander through themed gardens, discovering a rich tapestry of flora that goes beyond typical tourist experiences. Explore this verdant sanctuary, making Jardin Botanique a must-visit gem for nature enthusiasts, seamlessly integrated into your Switzerland package from India.


This extensive collection of floral species is categorised into various sectors like the Rockery, Arboretum, Winter Garden, and Greenhouses. The Herbarium inside the garden shelters over 60,00,000 specimens of plants and fungi. It follows the eighteenth-century conventions of Botany and is sadly not open to visitors.

Don’t let that deter you, though. This relaxing place is a frequent haunt for plant-enthusiasts, botanists, and even for romantic walks in nature. Here’s a fascinating tidbit: all plants are assigned a number, which helps keep track of their evolution through each stage of planting, transplanting, and category of collection. Once the plant is categorised into a collection, it receives a label.
