Main content

This year's 'stolpejakt' or pole hunt is underway! The Arboretum and Bergen Botanical Garden have been involved in placing poles around our grounds for a second year. We have posted information and photos relating to the special places where the poles are to be found. This makes pole hunting a great way to learn more about parts of our collections that may not be as familiar to everyone.

'Stolpejakten' has proven to be a popular initiative in our collections. Last year, there were 5,892 guests at the chestnut tree, where our most visited pole stood. In total, our poles had almost 60,000 visits last year.
