Surrounding Area


The WSL is very privileged to be situated within a 10 hectare park. In addition to the experimental garden and various research installations, there are two wetlands, extensively maintained meadows and a restored brook. The main part of the area is reserved for research, but we also paid attention to the use as recreational space for our employees.
There are secluded spots with benches or seating areas. At the periphery of the area, we have set up a fire pit where people can meet in the evening. During the day, we have the opportunity to meet outside for a group meeting or to work in quiet on a shadowy bench.

The site is maintained sustainably and has been awarded with the  quality label by the Foundation for Nature & Economy.
