Tropical palm house at City Gardens Zurich

Oct 16, 16.15 h (in German) - Register

The tropical palm house was built in 1938 when it was used for keeping tropical plants inside over the harsh winters that were usual almost one century ago. In 1961, they changed the rooftop to a glass roof and made it into a public place. Four years ago, it was totally renovated and now has a roof with rolling textiles, which cover the glassy part when temperatures are sinking. 

The German guided tour takes approx. 1 1/2 hours, is free of charge for members, guests pay CHF 10.-. Afterwards we reserved in a nearby restaurant to have a drink/bite and we can continue to discuss the art of plants.

Meeting point is at the main entrance of the city gardens: Sackzelg 25. By public transport, you can take tram 3 or buses 33, 83 or 89 to stop Hubertus.
