  • The green lung in the city center. Enter the Palm House to get the Mediterranian feeling in winter! The Camelias bloom in February-March. Fantastic!  more »

  • It’s a very well organized garden. There you can find many events relevant to gardening and health. You can find consultants about many plants, flowers, mushrooms and so. If you like to hike there is the place for you. There is a station nearby with same name. And several trams pass there. Great views and excellent relaxing areas you can find there. It’s very welcoming and always inspiring.
  • The botanical garden is really big and there are many interesting places within it. I particularly enjoyed the Japanese and Korean garden. You have to pay to access the greenhouse, which contains mainly tropical flowers and is also beautiful. This place is worth a visit.
