Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

As the day was sunny and warm welcome were able to go around the whole garden, look at a multitude of different flowers, trees and herbs. The garden is very well maintained and interesting to visit. The viewpoint is well worth the climb as the... More

Lovely walking round these gardens and seeing the plants in the different glass houses. The photography exhibition in one of the houses were amazing too. A must stop is the Rose cafe/restaurant. Food and ambience excellent. So much choice and all served with a smile. Look forward to going there again.

Very well kept gardens with many wonders of the world. Great discovery trails which lead to landscape art. Cherry on the cake are the views over the city.

The gardens are a beautiful attraction in the city. A peaceful haven with inspiration from the plants. A lovely, pleasant walk through the gardens. Sadly the roses just about over but what left beautiful. Lovely food at the cafe. Visited gardens a number of times during our stay in Gothenburg.

This Botanical Garden is quite big and has interesting places to see, including a small waterfall. Have to try it when in Gothenburg especially if the weather is nice. Y

It's a fantastic garden with lots of flower arrangements, and trees you don't find in other places. In the beautiful greenhouse in the middle of the park you will find beautiful exotic plants. For instance very big waterlillys.
