An oasis in the centre of Gothenburg

The Garden Society of Gothenburg was founded in 1842 and is one of Europe’s best preserved 19th century parks. During summer the rose garden is filled with several thousand colourful fragrant roses. In the Palm House, the elegant glass house constructed in 1878, you’ll find palms and other tropical plants. Drifts of foliage and extensive borders take you back to the golden age of horticulture. Guided tours in Swedish can be booked. 

Bring friends and a picnic (without alcohol or dogs) to the park, or have something to eat at Rosencaféet or Café Grindstugan. Food is available at Trädgår`n restaurant which also hosts concerts, a night club, shows and much more. There are several public toilets in the park. Parking is provided by Gothenburg’s parking places. The park is within walking distance of Gothenburg Central Station. Accessibility is good for wheelchair users, see TD - the Accessibility Database
