  • The University Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in Norway (founded in 1814). An ideal place for a relaxing walk, in silence and surrounded by plants.  more »
  • Loved walking through the botanical gardens, even in winter time (or is it early spring now?). Very peaceful! Would have been lots of interesting things to see during summer. Nice museums as well.  more »
