Join us for an early autumn walk at Pålsjöskog!

Our Saturday afternoon walks have been very popular this year and we’re looking forward to the next one in October!

They’re a perfect opportunity for internationals to meet, chat, and network in a casual setting.

We’ll meet at Sannas Kiosk & Cafe at the junction of Johan Banérs gata and Rådmansgatan and take a circular stroll through the forest, finishing up at Pålsjöpaviljongen Cafe & Waffle Bar.

Pålsjö forest is lovely at any time of year and we hope you’ll enjoy this walk.

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.

This event is free of charge – but please unregister if you are not able to attend. Thanks for your understanding!

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event.
