  • There is plenty to look all year round. Gardens outside are free of charge. There is also a cafe and of course the greenhouses.  more »
  • If you find yourself in Ruissalo, visit here! Inside the greenhouse there are a small exhibition about plants. They have some birds there flying around as well. There was a frog exhibition as well...  more »
  • Maybe it doesn't have the richest plants collection, but it is definitely worth to visit. Paths are nice, whole area is clean, everything as it should be in a Botanic Garden.
  • What a beautiful botanic parkland! Ponds filled with white yellow pink and red water lillies, fringed with reeds and irises. There are fornal beds laid with fruit trees, annual and perennial plants, food plants such as grain types and every kind of bush and flowers. Everywhere plants are carefully and formally labelled. On a previous visit we saw a tomato plant grafted onto a potatoe plant with both shiwing great harvests! The sculpture park is starting to look a bit dated but would be fun and intresting for new visitors. There are huge glazed tropical gardens, cafeterias and washrooms. The gardens lead onto a seaside resort with swimming areas public saunas sports courts, camping and caravanning facilities, a spa hotel and a number of nearby restraunts and cafes. All in all a wonderful place for gardeners, botanists, tourists, families looking for a day out and holidaymakers. It is also perfect for school groups to see the wonderful variety of plants. If you are in the Turku area do not miss this delightful spot
