Cheap hotels near Chinese Garden in Zurich, Switzerland
Located in Zurich’s Seefeld neighborhood, Zurich’s Chinese Garden was a gift from sister city Kunming and opened in 1994. The garden occupies a prized position between Lake Zurich and the mountains, offering a picturesque and serene backdrop for its visitors.
The grounds consist of a rectangular building decorated in traditional Chinese architecture. Inside sits a tranquil garden replete with a step bridge, lily pads and meditation spots. This “water palace” is connected by a bridge to the garden’s “mainland.” Here, visitors can take in a classic Chinese archway, pavilion and bamboo grove.
The garden is open March through October from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (also on Sundays and public holidays). Trams 2 and 4 and bus 33, 912 and 916 can help get you to the front gates.
