The Botanical Gardens in Oslo are absolutely beautiful and should not be missed. Admission is free, and you can get there from any of the T-bane lines. (Grønland stop, and then just follow the signs!) Walking could take 20-30 minutes from around Oslo S. The...More

Beautiful spring day so decided to go the botanic garden for the day. How disappointed- Even the sunshine couldn't make this dismal and tired place seem good. Whilst I appreciate many of the plants were yet to bloom at least I expected it to be...More

Even though most of the flowers are gone the colors of atoumn more than makes up for it. And since there is much less people around you can walk around in peace and quiet.

A wonderful park when the flowers are blooming. A nice café but not too much to eat/ drink. A lot of places to sit, take with a camera or something to draw on. Several museums to visit too, and you can walk here, run, look,...More

Lovely place away from the hustle and bustle of Oslo City Centre, but easy to walk to. Lovely setting, peace and tranquility.

A large area of tranquil gardens. Good views from the hill. Inspired to copy the octagonal summer house at home.

These gardens are huge, excellent spot for a picnic, sitting reading a book or a nice leisurely stroll, best of all it's free.

We visited the Natural History Museum, and wandered around the garden a little afterwards. We ate our lunch in a beautiful garden of ornamental flowers. We walked around a little after that and found a manor-like building with a cafe, and some cool sculptures of...More
