Great place to stop and unwind in the summer. Nice city centre park with great playground for young children and some good open space to kick a ball around. The green house was OK but would recommend for the park itself where you can sit on the bank of the canal and while the hours away whilst the kids let... More

I enjoy the open (green) areas, which is great for kids to play around in and for adults to sit or just stroll around in, and the fantastic flowers they have. If you enjoy native and exoctic plants as well as flowerbeds... then go here to see it live.

...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.

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!
