I just wanted a short time to relax but the lakeside was very busy and noisy so I stepped into the garden. So tranquil inside and although it is small I found a comfortable palce to sit and regroup before continuing touring.

The Chinese Garden is located by the lake, and it was a gift from the city's Chinese partner town of Kunming. Absolutely stunning surroundings.👌

In the tradition of building Imperial Chinese style gardens in the West, this is a beautiful garden, quiet, peaceful and based adjacent to a park on the lake in Zurich. It's worth visit, and it seems well maintained.
