More exotic plants, such as orchids, cocoa plants, and succulents can be found in the large greenhouse. The northern botanical garden is categorized according to plant type.

  • Quiet and peaceful, beautiful flowers, just a nice place to spend a few hours. We took photos and just wandered.

  • A good place to go for a walk with the family. Entrance is free and a restaurant is available inside the garden. A peaceful place to relax. They are still renovating some places. Hopefully a beautiful butterfly garden soon. Try to visit in spring to see blooming flowers
  • Beautiful Botanical garden. I have been here once now and I have not seen everything yet, but what I have seen was stunning. The entrance is a spectacular sight with the fountain in the background. Thank you for showing me around Dea c: Today was my second day here it was gorgeous, a lot of flowers en colors everywhere. Really beautiful.
