The Chinese Garden of Zurich

The Chinese Garden (Chinagarten) is a gift from the Chinese twin city of Kunming to the citizens of Zurich. The garden was opened in 1994.

It belongs to the group of temple gardens and is one of the most highly regarded gardens outside China. The garden explores one of the main themes of Chinese culture, the “Three Friends in Winter”: the pine, the bamboo and the winter plum, who defy the cold season.

Located in the middle of the beautiful promenade along Lake Zurich, there is a takeaway restaurant for Chinese specialities and an event venue.
