Gentiana botanical garden

In a 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, a short walk away from the ice-skating rink, offering a superb bird’s eye view of the Rhone Valley. The garden features one of the largest collections of gentians, as well as medicinal plants arranged in areas according to therapeutic benefits. Thanks to Professor Hostettman, you can discover the special characteristics and benefits of each plant.
