I'm in love with this Botanical garden. The first time I went there was in August. There was still a lot of flowers blooming. It was very exciting to see that. If time allows, I don't mind to come here every day and relax myself...More

The entrance is free, but they encourage you to make a small donation. The place is rather big and has some interesting pathways (hidden ones) to a hill. It's like walking in a park, but with some limitations and a quite diverse vegetation.

A nice walk on a sunny day with a few greenhouses you can enter. Small park preparing for winter but right next to hotel and offered a different way to get from one side of town to the other.

Nice, free and a fantastic place for kids to experience the turn of seasons, both domestic and foreign species, and the more “wild” pathways to the viewpoint was an imminent hit and awards you with a fantastic view over the city.

It is a nice and relatively big garden with different sections (ie bamboo garden, japanese garden, dahlia area, stone hill). We visited in October, out of main season, but nice anyway. Good views from the stone hill. Also a good cafe and a shop.

Its a botanical garden. A good place to come with your book and sit on the many benches or grass. Most of the trees and flowers have English descriptions to read. Expect to spend 2-3 hours just walking and taking in the sights during summer

This is a place for contemplation on the beauty of nature and you need to walk all the way up to the japanese rock garden if you want the best experience. After admiring all the unusual trees and plants you can warm your cold fingers...More

It is free but a 20SEK donation is requested - about £1.80 - slot in pillar at entrance if you wish to donate. There is a charge to see the greenhouses - that is 20SEK - well worth it. You can download a free app for your... More

The trams run regularly all over the city and are easy to navigate. You can buy tickets in nearby Pressbyrån or 7-Eleven kiosks for unlimited travel all day.
