A calm place to spend some time to rest the feet and enjoy a coffee on the terrace outside the Palm House. Unfortunately the main part of the Palm House was closed for repairs when we visited.

Copenhagen has many beautiful parks but this place - on the old city ramparts next to the lakes - is rather special. The Greenhouse is spectacular and will transport you to far off lands. Relax with a drink at the cafe on the roof. This wonderful place is managed by the University which explains why it closes so early -... More

Do you like plants? If so you have to visit the garden. It's a 'living plant museum' and one of the most extensive variety that I have ever seen. I especially enjoyed the succulent and cactus green house. The garden has a beautiful lake in the middle of it surrounded with different plants. Amazing. Highly recommend, especially on a nice...

Free activity, the glass houses are interesting with multiple varieties of plants but certainly could use some TLC, every thing is growing out of control. Good for leisurely walks but not impressive compared to the sublime Jardins De Paris.

The Botanical Gardens are an oasis in a city where unique architecture abounds! We enjoyed our walk from the National Art Gallery to Stroget (pedestrian shopping area), but also ending near Norreport Metro Station! The Gardens are located near Rosenborg Castle, too! We were impressed with the bountiful deciduous trees representing many places throughout the world! The Gardens have a... More

We were more than impressed with this free attraction. The weather helped with blue skies and sunshine. The glass houses were closed, but this didn't spoil the visit in any way. We had a pleasant afternoon.

It's free, except when there are things happening there. The gardens are pretty and well kept, and you can go to the palm house and see the exotic plants. Definitly one of the good free things to do with the wife, girlfriend or the entire family.

Beautiful gardens, though portions were under construction. I enjoyed the walks outside. And took a quick nap in the park :)

Copenhagen is such a quiet city that you would not need to get so many gardens. Still, the Botanisk Have is a wonderful place: lovely walk in a silent atmosphere. Go to the turtle pond to enjoy something different - kids love it ! and gaze the beautiful glass-house you'll never get home. A nice shop at the entrance :... More
