The Bergius Botanic Garden is visited by school classes of different ages and provides an excellent opportunity for teachers to introduce botany and natural science into their day to day teaching.

School programs

A visit to the garden can be booked to include a guided tour with different themes. To book a guided tour for your class contact our Nature school "Naturens Hus" (the house of nature). They offer a series of different school programs both outside in the garden or in one of our greenhouses.
