Le Jardin Botanique, the botanic garden really is a beautiful place and it amazes me everytime I go there how quickly I feel like I’m outside of the city and everyday life when I go there.
The garden has thematically arranged areas and tree-houses with herbs from all over the world, flowers, trees, etc. It must be a mecca for biologists and devotees of alternative medicine ;)… I find it interesting to see the plants but then again I am usually not in the mood to read the hundreds or probably thousands of little information plates when I break out of the city and dive into this immersion of nature… I like the smell of the different plants, the colors of the flowers and the sound of croaking frogs.
It is also a great place for jogging and wandering if you only want to go for a one hour walk.
The garden is very well kept, perfectly clean and it always seems like an army of gardeners work the whole night so it looks perfect the morning after! It’s amazing that there is no entrance fee.
