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.

A family friendly, interesting place with all sorts of things to see. The botanical collection outdoors is rather small, but diverse and nicely signposted. The little trailing water features make a lovely experience out of looking at all sorts of interesting species. The glass dome is a must see: not only does it house a diverse collection of tropical trees and plants, but there is also a pond with piranas, beautiful (and abundant) butterflies as well as a tall wood structure to take the whole thing in from high above. The grounds are also extensive and pretty. Wheelchair and buggy friendly. There is even a cafe/restaurant and enough space for leisurely sitting down for a meal, a rest, a little play or chat time within the hot house complex. And the wooden windmill is a bonus - by the southern tip of the dome.
Even better than the one in Copenhagen. So beautiful! And they had very nice educational activities too when I was there.
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.
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!
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
