A rather small botanical garden with some exotic trees and flowers. Benches to sit on, rather well kept. The small pond and rivulet looked a bit muddy. Not much bloom in September.

We arrived in Visby early in the morning before anything was open, so walked along the sea front then visited these gardens. There was no entry fee, the gardens are beautifully maintained and the plants are labelled so you know what you are looking at....More

This made a lovely walk, during a beautiful day. However, the gardens are small and I expected more. All in all, a bit of a disappointment. If I had known how small the gardens were, I wouldn't have bothered.

We had a beautiful walk through the gardens and along the wall to the end towers. Walked back along the sea outside the wall. Very nice and picturesque as well as great entertainment for grandchildren.

We were in Visby during medieval week so the town had hordes of people. This gardens become an area of tranquility. Some lovely displays.
