“Oasis of tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We only went in because the guide on the Canal tour recommended it. Right next to the canal, you can walk through the tree lined paths, relax on the lawned areas, or visit the Tropical glasshouses. At the end of the gardens nearest to the Tram and train stations is a delightful Rosé Garden with an abundance of floral displays and water features. To the side of the garden is an outdoor café serving a wide variety of meals and snacks.

Definitely not to be missed if you have an hour to spare.

“Beautiful, unusual old garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My husband, daughter, and I took a guided tour of this old garden in English led by a local who really knew the garden and clearly loved it. In the middle of a city that loves parks, this one is a special gem and worth the trip. Do take a guided tour if possible to fully enjoy the history of the garden and the gardens within the garden.

“Please pay the 20 swedish kroner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

get a tram to this place as it is a very long walk from the centre of town! It's a university run place with an emphasis on academic study. The indoor plant displays are really interesting. It's also a great place to walk round and - if you climb up to the "outpost" has some good views over Gothenburg. The 20 kroner entrance fee is left to you to go into the shop and pay, sadly we noticed many people did not bother. It's such a small contribution?

“Large area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

There is a huge selection of plants and flowers and I especially enjoyed the tropical greenhouse. The cafés are kinda small though (at least the ones we sat down at)
