Owner description: Welcome to the Bergius Botanic Garden. Ideally situated at Brunnsviken, an inlet of the Baltic Sea, the garden is part of the city’s national park, protected by law to preserve natural and cultural values for the future. The primary objective of the Bergius Botanic Garden is to support teaching and research about plant diversity, but the garden is also a recreational spot and a source of botanical knowledge for all its visitors. With a history stretching back to the 18th century, the garden is today owned and managed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and Stockholm University.

When you come to the Bergian Garden you enter a different world. It reminds a bit of the Töyen Botanical Garden in Oslo. Here work precious persons with a soul filled with wishes to preserve our earth, preserve beauty and traditions. They need to be celebrated for their work and zeal.

The Japanese Garden is peaceful and perhaps Japanese visitors will enjoy this part more in the Bergian Garden. Enjoy!

Free entry that's a stone's throw from the University subway stop. Entry is free and gates close at 5p. Definitely worth a trip

Bergianska Tradgarden is a great place to relax. You need to take a Tunnelbana train number 14 to Universitetet and then follow sign to the garden. There are a few complex buildings: Victoriahuset, Edvard Andersons vaxthus, Gamla orangeriet, Naturens Hus. I've visited Victoriahuset (entrance 20 SEK) and Edvard Andersons Conservatory (entrance 50 SEK). There is a cafe bar with delicious apple pie in the conservatory. It's worth visit.

Bergianska Garden has many facets. It is a scientific garden, a bit like Kew Gardens in London. Excellent for refreshing walks, summer as well as winter. The Brunnsviken, a lake connected to the Baltic through a narrow canal follows one side of the garden. There is a stop for the Brunnsviken sightseeing boat at Bergianska and you can look across the water towards Haga Castle, the residence of the Crown princess.

When you feel that you should go indoors, then you have two interesting places. The old, cast iron building for the giant waterlily Victoria, and other aquatic plants. And the modern Edward Andersson greenhouse, mainly for Mediterranean plants, and laid out so you can stroll in a pleasant green surrounding even in the deepest winter.

And when you need something to eat, you can go either to the café at Edward Andersson or to the café/restaurant at the Old Orangery just a few meters away. You can easily compensate for the energy loss during the walk with delicious cakes with whipped cream! Or have something lighter if you wish to preserve your just achieved weight loss.

Bergianska is a botanical garden originally founded to aid botanical research. In the late 1800's it moved to its present location, and it is still a working research garden as well as a public park. It is situated at the shore of Brunnsviken, a short distance from Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet (Swedish Museum of Natural History) which is worth a visit in it's own right - the two can very well be combined.

I visited the park as a child and had great fun running the course of the paths that separates the exhibits - not to forget the mountain or "fjället" - and I have often returned as an adult; this review is marked as "August 2011" but in reality that was only my latest visit to the park. In reality I go there up to four times a year.

In fall there's a harvest market, they do a Yule market, and there are also other events, throughout the year.

No entrance fee to the park itself but the large conservatory have an entrance fee of 50 SEK (2011) per person and the smaller one is 20 SEK (also 2011).

The large conservatory is divided in distinct climate zones and hosts a small café that is so and so - I recommend Gamla Organgeriet (the old orangerie) instead - but the exhibit is worth the fee.

The small conservatory is indeed small and mainly houses waterplants. It is only open may to (I think) october but I never miss it - it has a very special atmosphere.

Highly recommended for everyone, young and old alike.
