Dogs are not allowed into the garden during 1 mars - 30 september.

The reason why dogs are not allowed into the garden this time of year is that Botaniska, apart from other gardens and parks, have a very extensive, fragile and unique plant material. Think of the garden as a museum. The vulnerability is especially at its peak during the growing period. 

During rest of the year dogs are welcome on leash.


The restaurant is situated 400 meters, about 5 minutes walk, from the main entrance along the main road. Visit their website for opening hours
