Seleger Moor Park

At the place where two glaciers came together thousands of years ago, a peat bog with moraines has arisen. In 1956 Robert Seleger (1911-2000) started his search for rhododendrons to start a garden on this fertile spot. He then crossed the rhododendrons which resulted in different varieties with greatly improved hardness. In the course of the decades, the park, named after his founder, subsequently came into being. The park in Rifferswil (canton Zurich) has the largest rhododendron and azalea flora in Switzerland. With its wide variety of plants, animals, streams, and ponds, the park of about 12 hectares is a beautiful environment in all seasons, but especially in the flowering period of the rhododendrons.
