We stumbled across the botanic gardens after being diverted around the Copenhagen marathon. It proved to be a lovely diversion. The gardens are open and free to everyone and the had a children's event when we visited, showing the kids all sorts of botanically related subjects. It was well organised and everyone was friendly and multi lingual!. The rest of... More

It lacked a little wow factor for me but it did not detract from the experience. I have been too many botanical gardens and I am sure this one could be up there with the best. The water feature was lovely with the bridges over it and bird life in and around the pond. The small greenhouse I was able... More

Having visited many great botanical gardens and similar parks in UK and worldwide, I have to say that these are pleasant but not unmissable for tourists, based on a September visit. Of course a plant enthusiast or specialist might rate them more highly. There are nice plants and some water features and statues etc, and some corners are really attractive... More

We had a short walk through the gardens which were lovely in the sunshine. We could only visit one end of the enormous palm house as it is being refurbished. An oasis in the city.

Garden is beautiful, well maintained, with several glass hoses. The biggest one is tropical glass house. Surprisingly these are not only palm trees in Copenhagen, there are ones in Zoo, Aquarium and Ny Carlsberg glypotek garden. Garden is lovely for siting and relaxing, drinking coffee, or going between attractions that are near by. In the max 5 min walk from... More

A lovely garden, passing through plants of various habitats around a central lake, crossed by wood decked bridges. It was a shame that there was no access to the greenhouses, but there was a cafe on the terrase commanding a good view aswell as other lookout points and the shop is a particularly nice example of crafts and plants.

The gardens are kept in good condition and offer the opportunity for some peace and tranquility away from the crowds. Worth taking half an hour to wander through.
