Like San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, or New York's Central Park, but less busy. A huge park; lots of plants and grassy area, but not exactly a good tourist spot. Really, not a lot to do but walk around.

Everytime I come back to Gothenburg this place is a must! It's perfect for a nice and relaxing walk, alone or in company, but also for a bit of jogging in the open air. Would recommend 100%.

Disclaimer: we had a chance to see a number of both botanical and formal gardens before. The one in Gothenburg is big (most of it I would rather classify as a park), well-kept, has a distinctive rock part as well as a viewpoint. Layout is...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.
