Spent a rainy morning the the Greenhouses. Great indoor option for in-climate weather. The greenhouses are large with a wide variety of well maintained and labeled ecosystems. Admission and Parking are free. A short walk to the Gamle By.

Very good indeed. Interesting, free to enter and cheap coffee ! The children were invited to feed the piranha fish in one of the ponds. The glasshouses have many different plants with helpful labels in english.

Not sure, don't think so. There were no dogs in there while i was visiting, so at least it doesn't seem to be done. Guessing guide dogs would be the exception.
