Unlike a lot of stuff you can do in Aarhus, this one is for free. Even the greenhouses. There is a little cafe there if you feel like a cop of coffee.

We came across the gardens by accident, great find. The greenhouses were full beautiful plants and a giant timber viewing platform, which was great for a whole of dome view. Very easy to get a baby pram in and out of the gardens, great activity...More

Very nicely designed and presented with plenty of signage, a place to stop and get a coffee or tea as well as a butterfly space. Worth a visit and a nice calm spot.

Went for a too short visit before closing time, so we had to leave before having seen it all. You enter into an unusually shaped hot house. The plants inside the house are nicely labeled. It is clean and well kept. Do remember to climb...More

Not really. There are several things for even small kids to do and see, touch and enjoy, but no playground. On the other hand, it is very close to a park, with playgrounds.

Not sure, don't think so. There were no dogs in there while i was visiting, so at least it doesn't seem to be done. Guessing guide dogs would be the exception.
