Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

The Botanical Garden was my favorite thing to do in Gothenburg. The unique aspect of the Gothenburg Botanical Garden is that it's not just a botanical garden, there is a nature preserve / woods attached to it. It's also bigger and quieter than the typical...More

Many different parts with different geographical and species origins from all over the world. My only negative was the high prices at the restaurant.

We sought peace from the business of the last weekend in September, and found the cafés and the special presentation that weekend of the Swedish Apple growing experience. Don't miss the lookout and the Japanese "dale"

The beautiful garden gives peace of mind and peace for the soul. Lovely for walks and talks. And when more than 800 people was doing yoga to live music there with the lovely teacher Kitty Strand - amazing!
