Located across the road from Rosenborg Castle, the Botanical Gardens are a great way to unwind after an afternoon of walking around Copenhagen's various sites. Took around an hour to walk around the grounds that had a stunning lake and waterfall. Would highly recommend as a free way to unwind!

I was at Kronborg, and I thought of passing by the Botanical Gardens. Usually, it's not my kind of thing, but I like it, it was a nice and quiet walk.

If the weather is good you should visit the glass green houses and walk up the catwalk. It's warm and humid and a great view. The lake, bridge and grounds are so pretty that a couple was taking their wedding pictures there.

Located in the hearth of the city, Copenhagen botanical garden is very well preserved and definitely it is worth a visit. Do not miss the tropical rainy forest in one of its nursery! Free of charge.

This is a great place to come and relax - there are plenty of lawns and benches to sit on and perhaps even take a nap. There is no entrance fee and it's easy to reach from Noerreport (Nørreport) station. We cycled there though which is simply the best way to get around Copenhagen. We visited on a lovely spring...

Nice botanical gardens which are free to enter, lovely place for a walk around. Near to springtime when we were there so the flowers were all about to open. We arrived later in the day so the tropical house and the cactus house were closed but you could see through the glass quite well. If you are around Kongens Have... More

Incredible gardens right in the middle of the city. Best thing to do in central CPH, you can feel totally lost in a large area full of flora and fauna. Easy to spend hours walking around and enjoying the paths winding their way through trees, flowers and lakes.

Nice to get away from the city for a while and appreciate the plant life and flowers on display here. It can get quite crowded actually, but still good for a nice walk and photo-ops.
