About
Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

Visited as a family with a three year old. Beautiful nature experience with a lot of amazing flowers and plants. The restaurant/cafe is fresh and worth a visit.

Very nice garden in the center of goteborg. If you want to see Rhododendrons, prepare a note pad to take note of which you like. :)

A must see in Gothenburg! I visited in July and the landscaping was stunning. There are plenty of benches throughout for people watching and enjoying the quiet atmosphere.

This was a nice surprise.
Not so crowdwd, very well kept.
On a slope just outside Gothenburg.
Interesting Greenhouses and a perfect place for a slow walk to relax your brain.
I will go here again in the Autumn and Spring to spot the differences.
Never been here before will definitively go back.
The restaurant in the garden serve ok food.

Always open, you visit for free(or give a small donation in the entrance). Lot of flowers, trees amd exhibitions. In winter you should visit the tropical house with flowers/trees from all over the world. Cloe by you also got anggardsbergen(meadow courtyard mountains) where you see trees from other parts of the world. You also see animals like moose, deers and insects from the northern parts of earth. Bring your camera and take some wonderful pictures.
