Nice break from formal Palace gardens

Amazing collection of plants in a peaceful, serene setting. Worth an hour or two. Uncrowded,and a nice break from the bustle of the city. Beautiful Victorian greenhouse.

My partner and I went in here after seeing it when lunching nearby. Was really pretty and, while there were people there, it was really peaceful and a calm atmosphere. Loved looking at all the different plants and flowers and enjoyed the FREE greenhouse type building at one end of the garden. We had just missed seeing the cactus house,... More

Our visit was in May and maybe this is a garden that has another time of year to be at its peak. Certainly didn't impress us in any respect other than a peaceful place.

Lovely gardens indeed with water ponds. The green houses were under repair and hence could not visit them. However once you are done with the botanical gardens , there is an open food court with hundreds of vendors and that is must indeed. It is next to the station and the Botanical Gardens were great at building up a superb... More

I visited the Botanical Gardens at the beginning of May with my grown up daughters. I really can't impress upon readers what a wonderful experience this was. Everything so well kept and immaculate. Sweeping lawns, small lakes and so much space in which to roam around. The hothouses close earlier than the gardens themselves so we were not able to... More

A beautiful garden well set out and incredible victorian era style glasshouses. The huge rock garden was of great interest to us but we thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the whole garden

Compared to other botanic gardens in Europe, this isn't particularly mind-blowing, but for an hour's relaxation in Copenhagen this is a great little walk, and close enough to public transport options. The glasshouses are the best thing here, along with the ponds. Worth a look when you've a spare hour, but it's not a 'must do'.

I will start by stating that I've been to loads of botanical gardens in my time, all over Europe and beyond. I am a bit of a plant geek and a lover of free entertainment so theyre perfect. The BG in Copenhagen were lovely for a walk but a little disappointing in that the glasshouses are only open at specific,... More

It's probably not fair, but I was in the Gothenburg Gardens two days ago which are nothing short of amazing, and I find myself comparing the two. This is a nice garden, and well maintained! But lacks uniqueness. It is across the street from the Rosenborg Castle. It has a massive greenhouse with interesting plants within. I am glad I... More
