Welcome to one of the largest botanical gardens in Northern Europe. The cultivated part occupies 40 acres and holds about 12 000 species. It is a botanical garden with a strong emphasis on horticulture and the garden is divided into different sections linked by lawns with fine trees and shrubs. You will find a kitchen garden, a herb garden, perennial and annual borders, a Japanese glade, a rhododendron valley and a stunning rock garden with a waterfall. In the bulb garden you find species that are not grown anywhere else. The Greenhouses have more than 4 000 species including a large collection of orchids and carnivorous plants. The Eastern Island tree, extinct in its natural locality, is preserved here. The garden is bordering a nature reserve where also the arboretum is located.

Nice area to spend time in - even for me who aren't that interested in flowers and gardening. Went with interested friends and I was surprised that I enjoyed several hours here. Nice selection in the restaurant as well.

Easy walk from our hotel to the garden. It is a nice stroll. You have a good view of the canals and can sit and watch.

Large gardens with lots of interesting areas. We visited on a rainy evening after the greenhouses had closed but there was still plenty to see and do. Highlights, for us, included the small vegetable garden and the dahlia border
