  • Even at the end of the Flowering season the gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. There are an excellent variety of endemic and exotic species to interest even expert botanists.
  • The best botanical garden in Finland? Probably. Well maintained, layout compact but still feeling spacious and even forest like. Almost in the center of Helsinki. Tours are really good but seems that they normally only in Finnish. It is also a nice park for picnics and just enjoying the air and scenery. Cafe is a gem. Everything tastes hand made and fresh, with surprisingly decent prices for a location such as this.
