Nice place to walk up from middle of town. Great views from the botanic garden. Something to do on a sunny day in the alps

Beautiful garden on a steep hill with loads of plants and tees and rocks and waterfalls. Very pretty and a bit of exercise to go along with it. Nice views.

Well worth a visit if staying in Samoens. The views are fantastic although it's a steep climb to the top so take it easy and take plenty of water if it's high summer.

A beautiful little garden. Very tranquil and beautifully maintained. Quite a steep climb, but plenty of benches for resting and admiring the views of the town. We'll worth a visit.

This is a beautiful garden on the hillside with lots of little places to stop and sit peacefully taking in the gorgeous views of the surrounding town and mountains.

A lovely little walk and gorgeous views all the way up... including a small waterfall and some short-cut steps and nooks that the kids enjoyed. Only took us about 7 mins to get up with small kids, it's a short adventure but worth seeing.

Free to enter. Be prepared for steep uphill walks. Good views from the top, and some interesting plants along the way. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

The botanical garden was a nice short activity, although it was quite hilly so I would recommend going on a less hot day than we did (28 degrees). The garden wasn't huge so wouldn't take up the whole day as an outing but was certainly...More
