It was a beautiful late April sunny morning and it was nice and peaceful here. A lovely way to spend a wee while-I'm not overly interested in plants, but there were lots of them with little noticed too.

Natural history museum was near by - in fact almost everything is near by in this small capital city. Many exotic plants from far way... More

We were here In April so unfortunately didn't get to see the gardens in all it's beautiful blooming glory. However it was still amazing to walk through, there were some flowers here and there. This would be amazing when it's blooming

Once we finally got ourselves to the botanical gardens after a perishing walk in the cold winds, we were happy to find the greenhouses in particular which were great to warm up! Otherwise we enjoyed strolling the grounds and found the paths to be well cleared of snow. There's a lovely little cafe on site that's open every day. Sadly... More

The garden is wide, open and park like with its primary focus being an arboretum with trees from around the world. Planting ranges from arctic to tropical with a large section devoted to the 5 mediterranean... More

OK the garden is near Munch Museum plus the Natural History Museum on its side. So if you have a couple extra hours in Oslo this is the place to go and enjoy some green trees at North. There are good walking trail with some hillsides so it also would be very good for joggers.
