Very centrally located, this garden and exhibition is easy to visit and is a small oasis in the city center.

...and the butterflies in the orangeries. If you are lucky and sit down on one of the benches close to the big cage, a parrot named Charlie will come down and chat with you. Just call him. This place is occupying a large lot right in the center of town, in the summertime also a concert scene, housing thousands of... More

Beautiful place to walk with a great collection of tropical plants in a very delicate house. During summer it must be even more beautiful.

Great place for a stop while visiting the city. All kinds of vegetation surrounded ponds and small fountains. Recommended for an aafternoon if you get tired by the city.

If you need a break from shopping and strolling down the avenue, step inside trädgårdsföreningen for a while and breathe in the fresh air amongst a huge variety of plants from all over the world. Entrance is free of charge also to The palm house, where you can stroll from a colder climate on one side, to a tropical one... More

Its a beautiful area filled with flowers and tropic palms in central Gothenburg! There is a café called "Roscafe" with delicous cakes and lunch or why not bring your own picknick in this little park!

Whether just passing through or walking around (sometimes just to kill time, other times for exercise), this is a lovely place to go. Often when I was babysitting my friend's baby, I would take her to Trädgården. The Horticultural Gardens are great when it's cold out as they are warm(er). You can see a variety of plants/flowers and, in the... More

Was here in the winter. It was wet but the sun was out for a while, we wanted a place to jog , and this is near our hotel. Turns out to be a pretty nice little garden.

Huge park that you should not miss during spring and summer. The location is also great, as it's in the heart of Gothenburg. You can have long walk, but also enjoy a picnic during the nice summer days.

The park is huge and it must spectacular during the summer with all the gardens and roses but unfortunately during winter it's not worth to visit. Of course you can walk through the park and relax in the middle of the city. Almost all the cafeterias and shops were closed as well.
