The gardens were just starting to come alive after winter, but I can imagine it's amazing in summer. The greenhouses are awesome with diverse trees and plants from all over the world. Definitely a place to spend some time in if you're in Gothenburg! PS! It's free!

This park is in the heart of Gothenburg. It holds a large adventure play ground for the children. A Palm House for adults and children alike with a variety of different palms. A large rose garden many winding paths and an excellent cafe completes the picture. There are often events and concerts during the summer. The day we visited during... More

This very nice place is often overlooked by people visiting Gothenburg. It´s in the center of the town. Within a few steps you reach a calm place where you can see interesting things but also rest and have a break from the city. Kids could play around freely. I have been here many times. Highly recommended.

Great place to take your kids. They have a very nice playground where the kids can run around to get a break from the city. I also recommend the "Palm house" with lots of beautiful exotic flowers

Located 5 minutes from the train station, it is a nice place to visit if you have time, but perhaps because I went in February, it was rainy and not so much life other than in the greenhouse, which is small, and can be viewed in 30mins comfortably. Good for older generations that enjoys flowers and greenery, but varieties are... More

The Garden is at a walking distance from Central Station. I visited there early March so it was still very cold. The garden is equipped with so many facilities, it must be crowded during summer time. The greenhouse is worth a visit.

We were married in Palmhuset in the middle of September 2014. Beautiful place for a short ceremony. It gets a bit warm in there. We had 86 guests. All fit in fine. We then rented Lagerhuset just around the corner from Palmhuset for the reception. Bathrooms needed a bit of a clean up before the reception. Only water was a... More

Love to spend time in this place. It´s a park in the centre of town, big trees, green grass and if you are really daring you will take a dip in the water. On a summer day there will be a lot of people just suntanning and doing picknick.
