We were there in winter fearing that there would be nothing to see but in additition to the large open-air areas there are greenhouses and hothouses worth visiting at least from the point of view of architecture, but the parts inside that were open on the day of our visit contained lots of exotic and unusual plants. A real experience.... More

Even in Feb the grounds are worth a wander around but the real attraction are the hot houses and greenhouses. The main hothouse is impressive not only for it's architecture and size but also for the ability to climb into the canopy and get an overview

Went for a stroll on the way to the national gallery. Good lake in the middle. Enjoyed the rockery. Greenhouses appeared closed (February).

We visited Copenhagen's botanical gardens during a Christmas trip and went early in the morning, meaning we had the place almost to ourselves. The gardens are well kept, and not overly huge so you can wander around them in an hour or so. Entrance is free. There is plenty of variety in the plants and trees there as well as... More

Every time we are in Copenhagen we spend some strolling in the botanical gardens. Every season, every day is unique and beautiful - from the colorful blossoms of spring to the apples in fall. The reflections of trees and clouds on the water, the gently rolling terrain, friendly people, quiet places to sit and contemplate or read a book. Always... More

me and my boyfriend had a walk around as it wasn't far from our hotel. It was ok weather which made the walk quite nice. I'd assume it's much nicer in the warmer months but even during October if was lovely.

From the entrance, one would think that it's a small garden. However, the further you get inside, the more the garden opens up to reveal lush beauty. The species of flowers, plants and grass planted there are quite numerous and impressive. Visitors are allowed to walk through the greenhouses where the flowers and plants are grown and you barely realise... More

If you get a good day, it's an excellent walk upto the glasshouse through the gardens. Bad weather may make it seem totally different. Once there, there is a modest set of greenhouses in size, but oh so gorgeous to look at.

It can be romantic and fresh. It looks great especially when it's sunny. That's how it was when we were there. Be surprised by all the things you can see. It's a lovely walk. Surely to be done, if you have time to do so.

The main part of the Glasshouse was under construction whilst we were there (October 2014), but some of the smaller sections were open and all of them were lovely to wander through. The grounds themselves are also beautiful and great for a walk or a picnic. Plus its free to the public!
