Botanical Garden

The Turku University Botanical Garden operating on the Island of Ruissalo is both a centre for scientific research and a public showcase for the fascinating world of plants. The outdoor and indoor gardens display over 5000 species and varieties of plants. Flourishing in the outdoor garden are e.g. annuals, meadow flowers, exotic trees and shrubs. A distinguishing feature of the new landscape are the three ponds containing colorful waterlilies and other wetland plants. The indoor gardens and cafe are open every day from 11am-5pm.
