Description

The Botanical Garden is a green oasis in the city - a place to relax and to enjoy the botanical variety and diversity. Most of the area is designed as an Arboretum, with approximately 1800 different plants. The garden holds a large and varied collection of trees and shrubs planted in a systematic fashion after plant family.

The Scent Garden is arranged as an experience for all, but especially the blind, mentally handicapped and wheelchair-bound.

The Palm House from 1868 and The Victoria House from 1876 present exotic plants from other parts of the world.

In addition, you will also find large, woven sculptures around the park, made by the British artist Tom Hare.

The greenhouses are open Tuesday-Sunday 11 am-4 pm.
