|The Palm House in Gothenburg, Sweden is a horticultural gem|
|The Water House|
It was totally restored 1980-1985.
There are four greenhouses, and the structure in the middle of the complex is twice as tall as the three other green houses.
The different houses are named the Tropical House, the Water House, The Camelia House and the Mediterranean house.
The tropical house is the largest structure. Here you find large palm trees. The Water house is dominated by a large pool where you can find the famous Victoria Water Lily.
