Set in the heart of town is The Garden Society of Gothenburg, one of Europe’s best-preserved 19th century parks. Its world-class rose garden boasts some 4,000 roses representing 1,900 varieties all on display. The Palm House that dates back to 1878, is a glass palace housing exotic plants in a Mediterranean climate. This attraction has garnered three stars in the Le Guide Michelin. Stop in the Rose Café for a coffee or lunch right next to the Rose Garden.
