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.
Directions: Follow signs from the cathedral.
When the weather allows it - probably the most beautiful park in sweden! Small and comfty.. And once you get to know the ducks you will have friends for life!
