Most enjoyable place to wear your legs out walking round slowly. Interesting perennials beds, (design very Scandinavian of course) but my favourite was the huge mound displaying the best collection of alpines I've seen in ages. A useful network of paths gives access to close-up viewing so necessary for some of the diminutive specimens. Wish I had had more time,... More

While the large glass greenhouse structure looked inviting, on this sunny day we wanted to be outdoors. With limited time, I was interested in seeing the annual and perennial bed display. I couldn't find the annuals perhaps it had been discontinued and in the perennial section, nothing was blooming; however the lawn between the beds was nicely trimmed. The nicest... More

I want to caveat by saying that I don't know anything about plants, so I don't know how good the collection actually is. It's an average botanical garden with lots of benches, so on a nice day it's a great place to relax and read or have a picnic. The exhibits don't have English translations and don't explain anything, so... More

What a lovely place! Flowers and plants from all over the world - the tropical building has flora from rainforests in South East Asia, Africa and South America, the outside has flora from all over Europe and the Americas, the Himalayas, etc. It is all arranged as a gorgeous, relaxed park where you can take lots of pictures and in...

A nice spot for a relaxing walk on a sunny afternoon. Gardens are very nice and were a nice break from bicycling around the city.

We stumbled in here while killing time, and boy are we happy we did! The gardens were beautifully manicured and made for an enjoyable stroll. The park part wasn't crowded at all, so it was peaceful even on a Saturday afternoon (we saw two different wedding photography sessions). We didn't go inside at all - we spent about an hour... More

Most of the exhibits were closed. No explanations not very visitor friendly. It wasn't possible to go into the conservatory to see the cactus collection. the whole place felt like it was neglected and run down or in the middle of being renovated.
