Aarhus Botanical Garden - Review
In 1873, the gardens were established as an experimental growing ground for various plants and trees. Over the years, different areas were developed into exhibits for specific flora. In the Tropical houses you’ll find tropical and subtropical plants; in the rockery you’ll find plants from the mountainous regions around the globe, a selection of popular medicinal plants and other miscellaneous. Keep your camera handy; there’s bound to be breeds and species you’ve rarely come across before.
The new Tropical Conservatory is famed not only for it’s pants but also for its spectacular giant snail shape – a highly energy efficient structure that maximises interior volume yet minimises surface area. The walking path will take you along an amphitheatre, two small lakes, and a playground. It’s a popular picnic spot.

Aarhus Botanical Garden, Aarhus Reviews
Very nice considering it's free of charge. The only let down is that it's a very short experience, an hour at most and the gift shop is a bit lackluster (surprising considering this is where they make some of their money). The cafe inside is well operated and good quality. The butterfly dome is the highlight, I would recommend making the climb to the top of the central tower, views at the top are worth it!
Beautiful place with lots of different plants and beautiful flowers. I recommend everyone visit there as there are plants from around the world. Best of all the indoor gardens is the best I've seen.
Aarhus Botanical Garden is a really nice place to visit, whether it's sunshine or rain. The overall garden is free, and you can walk around to your heart's content. Nice layout, good opportunities for sitting down and enjoying the view, and peaceful even though it's in the middle of the city. The greenhouses have some really interesting plants, as well as facts about them. They've clearly thought about the layout and design, as you can go through each greenhouse in more than one way - interesting paths, different levels, some with both... One has a plateau all the way up under the roof, with a splendid view of all the plants. One of the rooms is also filled with butterflies. The café is a bit on the expensive side, though
We were at Gamle By and since the botanic garden was close by we decided to go there too. We didn't have big expectations. It turned out to be free and very nice to visit. Many plants in a suggestive place (colors, sounds,...). It feels to be in a place far away. Worth a visit
it was simply amazing this place. organized,cleaned up and crazy interesting. Just go there.
