The Palmhouse

In the splendid building of almost 1,000 square meter you will be bewitched by natural beauty from all corners of the world.

The glass and cast iron of the Palmhouse constitute a glittering work of art in the middle of the park. Inspired by the famous Crystal Palace in London, it has been a popular attraction since 1878, where visitors can experience nearly 1,000 square meter of tropical heat and a diversity of exotic plants, palms obviously among them.

The five sections of the Palmhouse give both a good general picture of the flora of foreign countries and a flavour of the last century that contrasts with the stylistic ideal of our own day.
