Talvipuutarha – Picnic in a secret garden

This one is a true gem! As I love picnics as much as everyone else, but Finland is known for our long and cold winters, I’m more than happy that we have Talvipuutarha (“winter garden”)! Situated at the northern side of the Töölönlahti bay, Talvipuutarha is a garden in a more than 120 year old, big greenhouse with three different rooms. One of the rooms is filled with cacti and two other rooms are for palm trees, magnolias and all kinds of flowers, plants and trees. 

And the best thing is that not only the entrance is free but there are also cute garden tables and benches all around the greenhouse and it is allowed to have a picnic there! So just pack your lunch and coffee and enjoy it among tropical flowers and trees. After lunch you can take a nice little walk observing all the exotic plants, and there is even a small fountain and pond with carps! Talk about idyllic.
