Conservatory and botanical Garden of Geneva

A ‘living museum’ in the international district.

A living museum, the botanical gardens present a collection of more than 12,000 species!

Geneva’s first botanical gardens were created in 1817 as an expression of the then prevailing naturalist trend. Today, the Botanical Gardens and Conservatory occupy roughly 28 hectares. The garden’s herbarium - one of the world’s largest - has six million samples. The gardens invite you on a journey into the botanical world.
