Trädgårdsföreningen Botanical Gardens

So I’ve fallen in love with the city of Gothenburg. If you haven’t seen me banging on about the southern Swedish city enough over on Instagram then you’ll be getting more than filled in on it over here, don’t you worry! There are so many reasons why I love the city and the Trädgårdsföreningen botanical gardens is just one of them. One of the best maintained 19th century parks in Europe, it hosts a pretty rose garden, events space and the trophy exhibit: The Palm House.

It was certainly an Aladdin’s cave moment for me when I walked in on my own for the first time at 10am one morning. (Admission is free, you just wander in!) The mammoth palm trees in the central atrium, the misty-glassed, gold-handled doors with little ceramic plaques and water lilies grown annually from seed make you gasp at first sight and made the palm house well worth a second visit on my trip back 6 weeks later.


This was also the second time I sported this rather camouflaging ensemble of grid print skirt and palm print crop top. You know I’m a sucker for tropical prints so really, what else could have been more appropriate?!
