The Palm House

Exotic plants and tropical warmth, located in the Garden Society of Gothenburg.

In the centre of the park stands the Palm House, like a glittering artwork in glass and cast iron. It was modelled on the Crystal Palace in London, and has been a popular destination since 1878. In an area measuring almost 1,000 square metres you can enjoy tropical warmth and exotic plants, including palm trees.

The five sections of the Palm House provide a good overview of exotic plants from around world, as well as a glimpse of the previous century’s sense of style, in contrast to our own.
