Spent about 5 hours at this garden, with an hour at the Natural History Museum. There's even a zoo within the park, and admission's free!

The sprawling Slottsskogen makes a great case for city parks. It has everything for citizens of all ages - playground and zoo for kids, walking, jogging and bike paths, vast skies and awesome spread of trees. Goteborg deserves a gold medal for this.

Perfect place blending wilderness with a city park feeling. Perfect for parties under the sky , romantic promenades, zoo visiting , sealions bath, penguins funny swimming, bicycle rides, jogging, grill party, etc. And do not miss the rodhodendron and azalea valet blossom in may.

Just amazing to come here and relax in the nature. In the heart of the city this is the Swedish Central Park. So recommended

Slottsskogen is a large park in central Gothenburgh with great green areas, a large number of footpaths and a mini zoo in its midst. Beware the very steep way to get to the top of a hill, where the children's mini zoo is located. There...More
