This is a perfect place to visit both during the summer and during the winter. I was there this February and it was really nice to go into this tropical warmth when it was so cold outside. A different experience during the Swedish winter, and a needed one at that. There were interesting plants, a couple of Chinese quails and... More

People use to come here to enjoy picnics and the beautiful surroundings of flowers. Specially in late spring to early fall this is one of my favorite places in Lund. At winter it's nice to go into the tropical greenhouse and enjoy a walk in the warm climate. Its open every day 11-15 according to a sign.

Botanical garden is a nice place to walk and enjoy the day. Depending on the season, it is a completely different place. They have a greenhouse where you can know about tropical plants. There are also many events happening all the time. Check on their website. Also check the nice coffee there!

Even though Lund isn't a big bustling city a break from traffic is always welcome. The botanical gardens are beautiful most of the year and have different flowers for different seasons. The botanical house costs a small entrance fee and lets you travel through different climate zones and it's plants. It is by far the most beautiful park in the... More

The botanical gardens are well kept and labeled. They are perfect for a stroll or a picnic. There are for example many tropical trees that are extremely unusual for Scandinavia, wonderful slower gardens, bushes --everything you can desire of a botanical park.. Just south of the gardens is an old cemetery, with many famous people buried there.

It is quite a big garden and hosts many biological important plants. It also hosts a green house for various tropical trees found accross the earth. Must for Botany students...

WE had a lovely walk through this free botanical garden while exploring Lund on a warm September day. Many plants and flowers were still in bloom and beautiful. Much larger than I thought. Great spot for a picnic. Free admission. Definitely worth a visit. It was beautiful in late September I'm sure it's spectacular in the spring.

I have no idea why botanical gardens are so special. I have been there twice but nothing really surprised me.

We went there for a walk, but happened to witness an exibition of different pepper types from mini and super chili to the ordinary ones we buy in stores. I loved the fact that it has in the inside a few birds I saw for the first time in my life. It is some type of small chicken-like birds that... More
