We stopped by briefly to have a peek at the Botanical Gardens. They are not amazing but given the weather conditions here they are surprisingly good. Not so surprising are the many rock structures.

This botanical garden is very pretty but is not located close to anything else and takes a while to Get to. Not worth it in my opinion, but if you do happen to be close by, go see it. Nice café Floran is located inside.

As general advice I'd say get a good city map. This is one of the stops on the city sightseeing bus tour, but where they drop you off is quite some distance away. Nevertheless, once you do find it, it is a very pleasant experience....More

A lot of the flowers, the greens, bushes and seeds have been destroyed due to bird feeding. It's sad cause the atmosphere is great. A lovely garder with a small section of flowers, some pools and trees are still there. Also some kind of statue...More
