Gentiana botanical garden

In a wonderful natural setting, the Gentiana botanical garden in Leysin acts as a visitors' centre as well as being an informative aid when learning all about medicinal plants.
Gentiana Garden is below the village next to the forest of le Suchet and a short walk away from the ice-skating rink. This offers a superb bird's eye view of the Rhone Valley. The garden features more than 50 species of gentians of all the continents, that is to say one of the most important collections of gentians. You will also find there medicinal plants arranged in areas according to therapeutic benefits. Thanks to Professor Hostettmann, you can discover the special characteristics and benefits of each plant.
