  • This garden area is by all means worth a visit and it's a perfect activity on a sunny spring or on a summer day. Make sure that you don't miss the Zoological Museum which is also a part of the garden....  more »

  • A nice botanic park. It has a big area and there are several greenhouses inside which contain exotic plants. Also there is a café inside with nice drinks. It's generally a nice place to go with kids or alone.
  • I did not visit/enter the covered greenhouses and gardens because they were closed. But the park itself is very beautiful and well maintained. All trees and gardens have species identification. Well worth the walk after the visit to the Munch Museum.
  • A botanical garden this far north. Cool Viking info and a lot of local/Norwegian plants.
  • A very nice place! As a Hungarian it was fun to see those trees which usually cannot be found in Norwegian nature but common in my country. I felt actually a bit nostalgic. Amazing for all ages! Must see!
  • Gratis, pent og ganske stille og rolig.
