  • This is one of my favorite places in Oslo. I love to just walk around and take pictures here. The garden is huge, and it's a lovely place all year around, but I think I like it best in the summer because you can see all the colorful flowers and plants from all around the world. There are two greenhouses with a lot of interesting plants, and there's also a cafe with indoor and outdoor seating and some museums in the garden. The best part is that it's free to enter (except the museums). This is definitely a place you should check out if your in Oslo!
  • I'm really enjoy and never disappoint to visit this place. Totally amazing. There's to many flowers, I love it too much. Don't ever forget to visit this place if you're going to Oslo
  • It's a beautiful garden right in the middle of Oslo with a wide range of flowers and trees that feels like a magical place during summer. Go for a visit! You will not regret it
  • Lovely gardens with nice exhibits in the museums. Go there on a sunny day and see the best of Oslo. :) Stroll through Grønland on your way to or from it to experience Oslos' multicultural melting pot. :)
  • Very good for you soul! This place is beautiful! especially in summertime! This is a must visit!
