The Palmhouse

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

In the centre of the park stands the Palmhouse, 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 Palmhouse 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.
