Long Description:
Trädgårdsföreningen is one of the best preserved 19th century parks in Europe, and is honoured by the Michelin Guide.

The Garden Society has plenty to offer for all the family - daily walks in the park, concerts, traditional festivities and theatre for the youngest members of the family.

The Palmhouse appeared in Gothenburg in 1878 like a gigantic puzzle made of cast iron and glass. In this splendid building of almost 1,000 m² you will be bewitched by natural beauty from all corners of the world.

The Palmhouse building contains five sections with different climates: the Camellia house, the Mediterranean house, the Palmhouse, the Tropical house and the Water house which contains the Giant Water Lily, grown from seed each year, and a fine collection of bromeliads.
