The Greenhouse is rather limited and so the exotic plans are also few and therefor kept somewhat small. Never the less the surrounding park and its coffee house are so nice. Perfect place for a relaxing walk, specially in springtime when the lilacs are in...More

We visited the gardens the beginning of April before the outdoor flowers had a chance to bloom. We did go in all the greenhouses, which were very interesting and pretty.

We enjoyed it here, the botanical gardens were small but free and still enjoyable. Takes about 1-2 hours to tour

Nice view on the nature, a really well-groomed and peaceful park. My favorite was the viking ship! Also the small lake next to that.

Even though most of the flowers are gone the colors of atoumn more than makes up for it. And since there is much less people around you can walk around in peace and quiet.
