Underbart att promenera i Botaniska en vårdag när vitsippor, lördbärsyräd, svullar och många andra vårblommor står i sin fulla prakt. Och man får inte missa Azaleadalen! more »Wonderful to stroll in the Botanical one spring day when the anemones, lördbärsyräd, svullar and many other spring flowers are in their full glory. And we must not miss the Azaleadalen!
Went here yesterday during our trip to Gothenburg. What a breathtaking experience! This botanical garden is enormous and perfect for a day out with friends or family. We were really lucky because it was sunny so we couldn't have had a better day here. We ran into a sign to a viewpoint along the way and decided to go up. Quite some steps later we were treated to an amazing view over Gothenburg. We wanted to have some dinner here but unfortunately the restaurant was closed. Definitely go here and enjoy nature at its finest!
It's beautiful and stunning garden. Lots of beautiful flowers. We can spend a whole day strolling around the garden. It's a perfect picnic place and we saw many people having picnic there. We also saw some wedding shooting. There are lots of benches to sit if one is tired. Toilet facilities are good. there is also a beautiful restaurant which serves great food and drink. We had a great experience eating lunch at this restaurant.
Beautiful garden with lots of different flowers. If you're not so interested in flowers there's a zoo with moose, deer, goats, penguins ... and seals! Great for a day out with kids. On top (literally), you'll also find a viewpoint with a lovely overview over the city. Don't miss out on that!
This place is honestly stunning. It's fun to walk through but there's also loads of places to sit and chill out if it's sunny. The facilities are good - there's several blocks of toilets dotted around and a restaurant if you didn't bring picnic food. Would definitely come again.
nice place to relax and enjoy nature and plants and flowers. The entrance is free and from the viewpoint you have a great view. There is a restaurant serving food and refreshments and many nice places to take a break.
