The park is huge and it must spectacular during the summer with all the gardens and roses but unfortunately during winter it's not worth to visit. Of course you can walk through the park and relax in the middle of the city. Almost all the cafeterias and shops were closed as well.

Very nice park in central Gothenburg, perfect for flower enthusiast. Enjoy quietness and relax on a park bench or at the cozy old-style café, or visit the greenhouse with tropical plants.

It's probably not worth visiting if you have to travel to it. If you're staying nearby and you have spare time it's worth a visit. It's free and there's an indoor section with plants to view. There's not much outdoors to see in the winter though. It's lovely in summer :-)

Beautiful gardens with great glasshouses. The palm house was modelled on London's Crystal Palace and was delivered from Scotland in sections by sea in 1878. The Rozencafe is a pleasant place to sit in the garden with a latte macchiato. Good Wifi.

We absolutely loved this park, we came here every day of our 4day visit, there are loads of facilities around the outskirts of the park, cafes, restaurants, etc. There are beautiful places to sit and watch the world go by, or have a picnic. This park is bang in the middle of the city, so great to escape the city... More

This was right across the street from the Clarion Post Hotel. I just wandered over and spent some time walking and enjoying the plants. The rose garden was beautifully in bloom and smelled wonderful. There is also a playground with creative structures and a soft surface for landing.

I happened to just stumble upon this interesting part of town, and I am glad I did. It is taken care of very well, they have an amazing playground for kids with a floor that doesn't really hurt when you fall, they have an amazing green house, and quaint little cafes in and around the gardens. It is a must... More

If it is a sunny day this is the perfect attraction to visit in the city! Very nice atmosphere, few cafes inside the park, very tidy and well-finished.

In mid-August the rose gardens were still in bloom, and the glass houses were just amazing, full of wonderfully exotic plants.
