Very large and beautiful garden, many sections, I particularly enjoyed the far north and Japanese parts at the very back of the garden. The garden connects to a forest trail in the back, good for running or hours of hiking. The meat eating plant section...More

We enjoyed the variety of plants/trees/bushes - and the chance to take a good 2 hour walk. There are some side paths that are a bit "rugged" but the variety of plant life is impressive and easily accessible - but up hill.

Lovely gardens and free entry although entry to the greenhouse is 20 krona. Nice zones to walk around and climbing up to the viewpoints gives great views. Nice little cafe but it is cash free so you’ll need a card.

I'm in love with this Botanical garden. The first time I went there was in August. There was still a lot of flowers blooming. It was very exciting to see that. If time allows, I don't mind to come here every day and relax myself...More

The entrance is free, but they encourage you to make a small donation. The place is rather big and has some interesting pathways (hidden ones) to a hill. It's like walking in a park, but with some limitations and a quite diverse vegetation.

A nice walk on a sunny day with a few greenhouses you can enter. Small park preparing for winter but right next to hotel and offered a different way to get from one side of town to the other.

Nice, free and a fantastic place for kids to experience the turn of seasons, both domestic and foreign species, and the more “wild” pathways to the viewpoint was an imminent hit and awards you with a fantastic view over the city.

It is a nice and relatively big garden with different sections (ie bamboo garden, japanese garden, dahlia area, stone hill). We visited in October, out of main season, but nice anyway. Good views from the stone hill. Also a good cafe and a shop.

It is free but a 20SEK donation is requested - about £1.80 - slot in pillar at entrance if you wish to donate. There is a charge to see the greenhouses - that is 20SEK - well worth it. You can download a free app for your... More

The trams run regularly all over the city and are easy to navigate. You can buy tickets in nearby Pressbyrån or 7-Eleven kiosks for unlimited travel all day.

Anyone tell me on which boulevard exactly is the entrance of the Botanical garden, it's a pretty large place? I wonder which Metro station is the closest to there also? I'm interested in the precise working hours as well, as I read a controversial info?

Am sure you are referring to the Botanical Garden of Rome (University), which is located in Trastevere, as you know a nice area to walk around in. I also believe it is closed all August, but you can call before you try to go over there. The garden is quite large and relaxing to visit (you will find some other reviews of it on T/A.) Was there last Sept. The only downside was it appears there is not enough money to keep all aspects of the gardens themselves in great condition, but there...More
