Oslo Botanical Garden

The University Botanical Garden at Tøyen in Oslo is Norway's oldest botanical garden, established in 1814. It is administrated by the University of Oslo.

The collection includes roughly 35,000 plants of about 7500 unique species.

The Botanical garden is the largest in the country. Several thousands of Norwegian and foreign plants demonstrate the Garden's botanical variety. The beautiful Rock garden, with its waterfalls and 1450 species of mountain flora, is one of the many highlights.
