Gorgeous Botanic Gardens

These gardens are really impressive. Even in March, there's plenty of colour. Pack a lunch and eat by the lake. Also, there's no entrance fee.

I can only imagine how beautiful it must be in spring and summer, but visiting in March 2015, it was quite "empty" we went to the green house which was nice and for the rest we just walked in the garden.

A lovely park to stroll through. We were as out of season as possible and there was still interest round every corner. Check out the palms in the palm house at floor level then climb the spiral staircase to check out the crowns. Try and time your visit for one of the few hours a week when the cactus house... More

Stumbled across these beautiful gardens whilst wondering through the city. They were completely free to walk through and were so peaceful. Definitely worth taking time to sit and chill with a coffee

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.
