I was much taken aback by this beauty in the middle of Copenhagen! The Rhododendrons and azaleas were in full bloom...what a lush and beautiful rush of colours. This garden is very well landscaped and taken care off to the exyent that it appears to be manicured. It is easy to be hypnotized by its beauty so much so that... More

It is a beautiful place, calm, green and close to the centre. There is a little forest, waterfall and steamy palmhouse with a roof top walk around. It is free of charge.

Hop off from the bus we saw this park! A more than stunning greenhouse, free entrance and so so nice! Worth a visit!

We like flowers. We like trees. We like to walk. If you are like us this is a great get-a-way right in the heart of Copenhagen. Beautiful paths lead past landscaping and ponds. The Palm House is loaded with exquisite plants. If you need a break from the usual tourist hustle I highly recommend these gardens.

We started the day off walking through the park waiting for other attractions to open. There are large open areas and lakes plus gardens on a hill providing a view over the park. Later in the afternoon, we strolled through the palm house and the park. Beings one of the first warm days, the aprk was filling with people just... More

This place is really beautiful and well looked after. It's a great free thing to do whilst in copenhagen, it's not huge or as big as Kew etc nevertheless it's really pretty! Would be lovely on a summers day for a picnic.

There is lots to explore around the botanic gardens - it is in the next to Rosenberg Castle so one to do on the same day. We had tea in a lovely cafe overlooking the gardens. There's only two entrances so if you come at it from the wrong side like we did, its a long walk around the fence... More

Came here on a freezing cold but sunny day - and was quite impressed. It's not a big garden, but that's quite nice as you can easily cover it - the garden is also quite diverse so to me it had a lot to offer and made it very interesting. The main palm house is impressive - the exterior more... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
