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.

The University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden will give you a few hours of walking between a great variety of plants, from all over the world. Even in a very cold day you can enjoy 25+ degrees in the cacti greenhouse. There are a few pools with frogs, ducks and other birds, and everything is kept immaculately. Very much recommended!

A place to geg away from the city for a while. Quiet paths around the lakes and ponds. If it's chilly, pop into the tropical pslm house to warm up.

My mother likes to visit botanical gardens in every city we visit when we travel overseas. She really liked this one. It is close to the Norreport Street metro station. It is also at a stop of the hop on hop of bus line. It takes about 2 hours to walk and see a large part of the garden if... More

ok not very interesting but I suppose a lot of this had to do with the time of year not much in bloom A few blue flowers lovely to see the nicely cut trees The greenhouses looked amazing but we could not get in. So not much joy there

Me and my family spent our morning walking around botanical gardens, just enjoying a nice green area in the centre of Copenhagen. You got the feeling that you were out of the city centre and you feel relaxed. Free entrance and even in winter there is open in the palmhouse. Can be recommended if you want a relaxed walk in...

These gardens are very pleasant to visit, even out of season.....would love to see it in full bloom! There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore and the greenhouses are very impressive. Inside these, you can climb to the top and the tropical plants are interesting. And all for free!

Unlikely we've been in Copenhagen in March. This place surely is beautiful in spring or summer, but around March's end there isn't really something to see.
