  • Well organized, beautifully, soothing to be there. A favorite place when I'm in the son with the family in Gbg

  • A wonderful large Park to wander in with all year round. Now where the visit in the greenhouse. To get into the Orkideernas world ... feel as if you were in the Amazon ... or just enjoy one of the last unique Påsköträd in its splendor. Saw a yellow flower. Easter Island tree whose seeds were brought from Tor Heyerdahls expedition 1956 ... feels amazing to stand there and look and ponder the story ... in the Botanical Tägården much for the soul to explore and look at.

  • A wonderful place to rush down for busy urbanites. The rock garden with waterfall and the Japanese Garden's favorites. Then go further South and around the small lake with its bird life (and frogs) is a nice addition.
