Trädgårdsföreningen, the Garden Society, Gothenburg, Sweden

Trädgårdsföreningen, the Garden Society, Gothenburg, Sweden

As we get of the blue and white tram (Gothenburg colours by the way) we got of right in the middle of central Gothenburg. The sun was out and people were enjoying the good weather by appearing with thin jackets and light clothes outside sipping coffee and eating icecream.
The city of Gothenburg always get a happy vibe as soon as the first ray of lights appear.
As we got of at Kungsportsplatsen, also called Kopparmärra, our eyes were soon drawn towards the fountain and entrance of the Garden society, or Trädgårdsföreningen, in Swedish.
The garden is the most central garden or park in Gothenburg and holds a rose garden, a palm house in classic glass glass house style, fountains, statues and parks. Concerts are held here as well as theater shows and fitness and yoga sessions outdoors in the summer. All free of charge. It is a wonderful way of keeping people happy and enjoying their city. As we enter the their botanical garden it is obvious that this is a popular recreational area.
We strolled around the entrance gazing at big sculptural statues admiring the birdsongs and flowers to enter the big area with the main Palm house, the playground and the rose gardens.
The Palm house is an attraction on its own. Enter a different climate zone by stepping into the Palm house that houses Palm trees and plants from all over the world. Like a sanctuary inside a sanctuary we strolled around like we were explorers on an expedition. Gazing and wowing the new plants. Everything from orchids to cacao beans can be found here.
There’s also a small upper deck where you can sit down and relax to take in the soothing atmosphere. The old glass house really brings charm and style to the magnificent Palm house. Behind the Palm house is the warehouse where you can sit down for a coffee or just smell the roses.
If you are looking for relaxation and a break from the hectic city streets, the botanical garden is just a few steps away. It is amazing that something this good can be absolutely free of charge.
So next time you’re in Gothenburg, don’t forget to visit the Garden Society
