The Botanic Garden is situated along the beach, north of the park Almedalen.
If arriving by car there is a car park outside “Kruttornet” , from there walk through the gate and turn left on Strandgatan. On the way to the main entrance are two small lanes where roses blossom in the summertime.
The main entrance is on the corner of Strandgatan and St. Olof’s gränd.

Between the city wall and the sea front is a beautiful promenade in north south direction. From the promenade the garden can be reached by entering the first gate in the wall.

More entrances:
From Paviljonsplan (north entrance)
From Tranhusgatan (east entrance)
From S:t Olofs grand by the ruin (south entrance)

Public toilets outside the north entrance.

The garden is always open to visitors. No entrance fee.
No fee for activities for children.

This site is primarily intended to give a picture and a feeling of the garden therefore scientific names are not provided for all plants. Since images may contain several plants this would in some cases make it difficult to know which plant the name refers to. When possible without any misunderstanding the scientific name has been entered.
