Seleger Moor is a park with many acres of flowers, mostly rhododendrons and azaleas, the largest collection in Switzerland. There are lots of little stroller-friendly paths to wander on. There is a family barbecue area with tables, so you can bring your lunch or get a snack from the small cafe. The only thing it’s missing is a playground, at least the last time I went. It’s a nice outing in spring.

The season is roughly from the beginning of May through mid-June, so don’t delay. This is a great springtime choice before the summer hiking season begins. In 2016, entrance fee is 12 CFH/adult, children under 16 free, parking 4 CHF/car.
We really liked it, even though it rained on us the whole time. The flowers smelled so good!
The main path “Rundweg” through the park is paved and easy with a stroller. There are also lots of dirt paths through the flowers with are still doable with a stroller.
The pond was full of water lilies and croaking frogs! My boys loved that.
There were funny statues scattered in the park as well.
