With its 175 hectares it's one of the largest of its kind in Europe. You find around 16,000 species in the different greenhouses and areas like the rock garden and herb garden.
The greenhouses have the largest collection of tropical orchids in Sweden, carnivorous plants and the rare Easter Island tree, which is extinct in its natural environment. Series of exhibitions are held in the greenhouses every year and the garden has a comprehensive schedule of activities all year round.
