Gothenburg Botanical Garden

The Garden’s total area is 175 hectares (about 430 acres), most of which is a nature reserve and includes the Arboretum. The garden proper is about 40 hectares (almost 99 acres) with something like 16,000 different species and cultivars in various parts of it. Among many fascinating parts of the garden are the Rhododendron Valley, the Japanese Dell and the Rock Garden with its waterfall. The greenhouses are closed and new ones will be built.


The garden has information about its different parts. You can find them in the shop, or download here:
