Wednesday 25 May 09:00 – Visit to Lund

Get to know our “sister” organisation International Citizen Hub Lund and enjoy a guided tour among the beautiful flowers and plants of the Botanical Garden in Lund.

We’ve arranged a visit to Lund to visit the International Citizen Hub Lund and to hear about their services to the international community. After that, we’ll walk together to the Botanical Garden of Lund for a guided tour. You’ll learn about the various plants and flowers that thrive in spring and early summer, and the history behind them.

Today the Botanical Garden of Lund University has over 7000 different species on 8 hectares (20 acres) in the middle of Lund. The collections include plants from tropical rainforests, deserts, and mountains. There’s also a range of fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants. 

The “Old Botanical Garden” was founded in 1690 and was situated at the current University square in Lundagård. At that time, the garden was part of the Faculty of Medicine. The garden at Östra Vallgatan was established in the 1860s and in the 1970s it was detached from the Botanical Institute of Lund University.

The botanical garden still supports research and education, but the main focus today is on communicating knowledge about botany, horticulture, and environmental issues.

We’ll meet at Helsingborg C at 09:00 to catch the 09:10 train to Lund. Please buy your tickets in advance.

Schedule:

  • Meet at Helsingborg C at 09:00
  • Catch train to Lund at 09:10
  • Coffee and introduction of ICHL and HIC 10:00-10:45
  • Guided tour Botanical Garden 11:00-12:00

Venue:

Start at ICHL, Ekska huset, Sankt Petri Kyrkogata 4, Lund.

The guided tour will be at Botanical Garden of Lund University, Östra Vallgatan 20, Lund.
