The Linneaus Garden

The Linneaus garden participated in Chelsea Flower Show in London in May 2007 - one of Europe's most prestigious garden shows. It was awarded a gold medal.The garden is permanently displayed on the shore of the Trummen Lake Växjö. The Linnaeus Garden was designed by the landscape architect Ulf Nordfjell. He has created a modern Linnaeus tribute garden that reflects today's interest in architecture, art, design, nature and gardens. Familiar wild varieties are displayed in simple arrangements with typical Linnaeus varieties, all framed by traditional Swedish materials such as granite, timber and steel.

Do & See

It is easy to discover Växjö. We often say that you can reach everything within 15 minutes. You are close to everything, for example the Linneaus garden, Sweden's Glass Museum, the Swedish Emigrant Institution, and you can easily walk between the city's different sights. On your walk you will almost certainly do some shopping and rest your feet at one of Växjö's many cafés and restaurants. Or just take a pause on one of the benches beside Lake Växjö.
