It's a nice green spot in the city, but not much more. Just like a small park, good for a run or walk with kids, but nothing special. Unfortunately, the poorest, most boring botanical garden I have ever visited.

Lovely place away from the hustle and bustle of Oslo City Centre, but easy to walk to. Lovely setting, peace and tranquility.

A large area of tranquil gardens. Good views from the hill. Inspired to copy the octagonal summer house at home.

These gardens are huge, excellent spot for a picnic, sitting reading a book or a nice leisurely stroll, best of all it's free.
