    There has been a botanical garden in Lund since the late 1600s, but the present botanical garden – almost in the centre of town – is from the 1860s. The garden covers eight hectares and has more than 7,000 species of plants. It is a very tranquil place filled with greenhouses, small ponds, and numerous flower beds with beautiful flowers and plants. Lund Botanical Garden is a really nice place for a walk, and during the summer, Café Botan is open for visitors.

    The Botanical Gardens in Lund are located at the edge of the city
    center. It's a big garden with lot's of space with nice lawns and lots
    of benches.

    There is a nice greenhouse that you can visit in the company of exotic plants where it's
    always nice and warm.

    In the Lund Botanical Gardens you will find more then 7000 plant
    species all setup in a big garden.

    Lund Botanical Gardens was founded in the university area near the cathedral in the 17th century. It then grew during its heydays when Swedish botanist Linnaeus also got his only academic qualifications in life here, before going on to greater world achievements in Uppsala. Finally, it outgrew its place in the citycentre and moved to the place it has now, at the edge of the centre, in the late 19th century. Today, apart from the research done here, you will find a lovely park to stroll around in along with students and locals, and the hothouses have enough to keep you interested for a while, certainly if you have young children.
