Visit the tropics without having to leave Switzerland
Escape the cold of winter in Switzerland and enjoy the heat of the tropics. You can do so without having to go near an aeroplane – thanks to the newly re-opened Tropenhaus Wolhusen. Discover interesting facts about a wide variety of plants and tropical flora – such as how papayas grow and why some chillies are so hot – over the course of half a day. And with a little luck, you will be accompanied by an African leopard tortoise during your visit. The cherry on the icing of your visit is a meal at the Restaurant Nucleus, which serves a range of delicious foods.
