This garden makes you feel like you're in a great place, breathing great fresh air and enjoying a great, beautiful view over Lausanne and the lake. The best you can do on a sunny day. There are paths winding up to the top of the...More

Awesome little park with beautiful plants and informational panels along the way. Worth a detour if you are walking through the city. And take the time to go all the way to the top; there is an auditorium facing the lake with possibly the best...More

I guess I should've stayed away from it. Last year I went to Pittsburg and visited the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens there. This is just a little more than a garden. It does have a tiny carnivorous plant glass tank.if that's your thing.

As someone else said, worth a look. However I have to say it has an end of season feeling to it at the moment- lots of things going over, not much in flower or looking its best, and weeds all over the place. Can't help...More
