About the Ringve Botanical Garden
The garden lies on the Ringve estate, 3 km northeast of Trondheim city centre. The garden offers a magnificent view of the Trondheimsfjord and the old cultural and historical landscape of Trondheim. The plant collections are important for conservation, education, and for public engagement & enjoyment.
Three organisations co-operate to run the botanic garden: the University of Trondheim (NTNU), the city of Trondheim and the Ringve estate. This estate is one of the oldest in this part of the country, with fine buildings, now protected, dating from the 18th and 19th century, and includes a museum of music and musical instruments.
