Medicinal and fiber plants, examples of tropical and subtropical alpine plants, woodland and water plants, and a collection of plants from the cold steppes of central Asia are just some of the attractions in this vast garden arranged in descending terraces to the banks of the Aare River. Vegetation from various ecological zones is grown both in greenhouses and outdoors. Following massive renovation, the garden is scheduled to reopen in 2008.
