  • I used to live next to the garden for a couple of years and used the park daily in the summer. It`s a perfect place to go for a picnic, an afternoon walk, a run or visit the museums. The park changes ...  more »
  • Visit here to get away for a while. Rare plants and trees but most of all peaceful. Check out the butterfly gardens. 
  • I have been here a lot. Great place if you are going to collect the thoughts or go a Sunday trip with family/friends. Lovely place with the possibility for a picnic (bring your blanket and any of the food, but the grill is not allowed). Sweet cafe with some high prices. More beautiful flowers in the summer, but not very spectacular. More greenhouse with a little to look at. Worth the visit!

  • 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.
