“A variety of gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

A broad collection of plants in the gardens and the greenhouse, the Chinese garden is especially attractive. Plenty of space as well if you want to get some quiet away from the crowds.

“A place to relax and wander”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Quite large garden area ideal for a Sunday walk and relaxation. On a good weather provides an alternative to a city walk. Many different gardens inside, some of them sem to lack maintenance resources. There is still a lot see, so reserve enough time. You can even view inside a bee nest.

The gaden is outside the city and can be reached by bus and a 10 minute walk. Of course you should bike there like the locals do. A cafe with a sun terrace provides refreshments by a pool with fish, birds and frogs.

“Mid-day wander”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Hortus is lovely for that mid-afternoon wander and then tea at the Pavilion. Very relaxing. Maybe not so much for younger children.

“Nice garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It's beautiful when you love flowers, trees and other nature to watch this garden. There are also nice buidlings to see and water. If you have the oppertunity and you like these parks and gardens, go.

“Charming Oasis in the North”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Delightfully beautiful collection (both indoor and out) of plants from different biomes. I love the palms and the orchids! Small enough to do with (small) children within them getting bored.
