Very nice to see the tulips blooming early in the spring:-) They close at night. Nice for a picnic & relaxing.

Beautiful place, a favourite to just stroll around and look at all the flowers. Sometimes it's a little bit too crowded in the spring with all the students hanging around.

Beautiful plants inside the greenhouses and in the summer outside! Look out for the small birds inside the greenhouses

Really cute park! In spring-/summer time filled with people playing football, suntanning and having a blast!

Just smell the flowers, and maybe grab a fika in the small café by the glasshouse.
