OK the garden is near Munch Museum plus the Natural History Museum on its side. So if you have a couple extra hours in Oslo this is the place to go and enjoy some green trees at North. There are good walking trail with some hillsides so it also would be very good for joggers.

I go to the botanical garden in each city I visit. This is one of the better gardens. Well maintained, highlight has to be the rock\water garden which winds up the gentle hill the garden is set on. The pond near the entrance has a rill that winds down the hill, sensory garden is the most well planted area. In... More

I especially like to go to this garden in summer. With lots of plants and trees, it's perfect for a nice peaceful walk, especially after a long tiring day.

I used to live next to the garden for a couple of years and used the park daily in the summer. It`s a perfect place to go for a picnic, an afternoon walk, a run or visit the museums. The park changes gradually according to the seasons and I think the most beautiful time is in the spring when the... More

Visit here to get away for a while. Rare plants and trees but most of all peaceful. Check out the butterfly gardens.

We were in Oslo in November, so mostly the gardens were covered with snow. However we found "vikings garden" with an example of how vikings grew plants on their boats to get food and also fibre (made from hemp). We also enjoyed tropical-all-year-round Palm House and Victoria House with the Victoria water lily. Finally we went to the Willow Garden... More

This garden area is by all means worth a visit and it's a perfect activity on a sunny spring or on a summer day. Make sure that you don't miss the Zoological Museum which is also a part of the garden.Take a stroll and enjoy.

I visited the Botanical garden in fall and it was very beautiful because of the color of leaves. Other than that I did not think the permanent exhibits were very interesting. I would recommend the Zoology museum which is a part of the garden. Take a stroll through the gardens. :)
