19th century park


A beautiful garden located in the heart of the city.

The Garden Society of Gothenburg, Trädgårdsföreningen, is one of the best preserved 19th century parks in Europe. Here you can find thousands of roses, carpet beddings and lush woodlands. The palm house from 1878 houses exotic plants in a Mediterranean climate.

For 170 years the Garden Society of Gothenburg has been an oasis of greenery in the heart of Gothenburg, a place to relax and be invigorated.

Today it is one of the best-preserved nineteenth-century parks in Europe, where rolling lawns, historic buildings and ornamental gardens featuring exotic and indigenous plants take you back to the golden age of horticulture.

The sweeping borders and nineteenth-century atmosphere set the tone. In 1992 the Garden Society of Gothenburg became the first park in Sweden to be given listed building status for its cultural heritage.
