Bergianska Trädgården is Stockholm’s largest botanical garden and a popular destination. It is located in the north of Stockholm in the university district of Frescati, in a beautiful location right on the banks of Brunnsviken.
The Botanical Garden calls itself the “Museum of Living Plants”(museum för levande växter) and consists of a freely accessible outdoor meadow and two (chargeable) greenhouses.
The smaller of the two greenhouses dates from 1900 and was built especially for the spectacular Amazon giant water lily (Victoria amazonica). This largest water lily species in the world, named after Queen Victoria of England, has leaves up to 3 metres in diameter and flowers up to 40 cm in size. The listed building is open from the beginning of May to the end of September.
Edvard Anderson’s växthus
The central point of the Botanic Garden is Edvard Anderson’s Greenhouse, which opened in 1995 and also houses a café and small shop. It is named after the Stockholm merchant Edvard Andersson (1865-1936), who bequeathed money to the Royal Academy in his will specifically for the purpose of building a greenhouse for Mediterranean plants.
