  • Such a pleasant and peaceful garden. We walked the main path all the way up to the Japanese fell and it was well worth it. We did not have much time and were also carrying a rather heavy pram, so we did not explore the whole park, as there were areas reachable after going up or down a series of steps. There are signs throughout the park and the maps are incredibly detailed. It is incredibly well kept and a joy to see.
  • A beautiful botanical garden. Large outdoor areas for strolling. Plants and garden beds have informative signs, sometimes just the name but other signs have a bit of storytelling. Several greenhouses grant access to tropical paradises and mysterious mountain landscapes. In several areas of the park there is special exhibitions that change according to the seasons. The area has facilities and several different options for food and drink. A more formal restaurant serves hot food but also more simple fair such as sandwiches are available. During summer months the park has many activities and many of them aimed to kids and families. All in all a must visit if you have the slightest inclination towards a green thumb or just need a green space to breathe :)
