Again we spend the weekend in Bâle. This time we visited the botanical garden of the university. It is a rather small area but there are a lot of things to see.
In the outer area they have a selection of herbal plants, trees, blooming plants, kind of rockery plants (you see in my profound classification of the subject, I am no expert), divided in smaller areas of their origin or requirements.
In the greenhouses you find tropical plants, succulents and orchids, among with some inhabitants. And fyi dogs are not allowed.
But really outstanding (well, at least it is my favourite) is the Viktoriahaus. A greenhouse build in 1898 especially to present the giant water-lily Victoria.
