Good even in the snow

Had a lovely walk around the gardens and went in to the Palm House. Even in the snow it was a nice walk.

If you are in the area I suggest you to go especially during the winter cause it's a nice break from the cold. The main big greenhouses are the core of this place. We didn't visit the smaller one. I personally wouldn't go on purpose, but for plants lovers it's an interesting place.

It's not one of the most spectacular gardens in Europe, but if you are in your last days of holiday in CPH, you got some free time and the weather is pleasant, you can go there for a walk. You must be careful because some gates close at 18:00 pm (not sure) but the South entry usually stays opend ultill... More

Great to shelter from the cold winter winds. Several different Greenhouses linked together all differing temperatures and plants, shame the plant descriptions weren't translated to English. If you like heights you can take the spiral staircase to the aerial walkway. External gardens were a bit bleak in December, however you may stumble upon a huge rockery

It was -3 with icy compacted snow on the ground. Slipping into the Botanical Garden was a great break from the cold. It's pretty good size with tons to look at. Make sure you climb up the spiral staircases and walk around the top. You get a great view down into the garden.

I didn't plan on visiting the botanical gardens when I made my initials plans for Copenhagen, but by chance, I happened to have an extra hour available one morning, so I walked to the gardens to explore the grounds and the green house. I'm SO glad I did! It's free, it's beautiful, and a great collection of trees and plants... More

Quite small and similar to the other parks around Copenhagen, I'm sure it would be far more impressive in the spring or summer. The palm house was lovely, I really want to revisit in another season.

Walk around the top of the hot house to view the plants from a birds eye view. Very pleasant surrounds, well tended and a good variety of plants. Stop to have a coffee near the south corner entrance where you can sit with a blanket.

We visited on a cold day and whilst walking around the grounds and looking at the frozen pond and icicles in the lake was nice, stepping into the greenhouse was a warm relief! The greenhouse has lots to see, with plants from all over the world and has a lovely viewing area at the top accessed by spiral staircases. It... More

We went there during Winter and still the park itself was worth walking through. But the greenhouse with its old Victorian style is really awesome.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood 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.
