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.

I had a wonderful time there. The gardens are beautiful, colourful, a lovely place for families, couples and lonely travellers as well ;) I had a picnic there and read an entire book. It was a lovely afternoon. I have not been there during the winter, but I am sure it would be as beautiful as it is during other... More

The gardens are well set out with lots of meandering paths and a huge lake. Only walked through and did not stop as closing in an hour. However there were a lot of hothouses so if you have the time they will be worth seeing.

I am studying ethnobotany and the University of Copenhagen, so obviously this place is one of my favorites. However, even if you're not a botany student, you'll love it. It's huge and there is one hundred and one things to explore. I highly recommend coming back more than once if you can! It's a relaxing garden in the heart of... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our visit, as primarily we were just looking for somewhere free to go and spend a while! The gardens are fairly formaly but immaculate and beautifully designed and interpreted with information. Gardens are set among water features including little lakes, and as a result there is a lot of birdlife to listen to and watch.... More

Go first thing in the morning, when it's still quiet and uncrowded. The walkway around the lake is a beautiful sanctuary across the street from Rosenborg Palace....and it's free!

One of my favorite parks in Copenhagen and often more quiet than nearby Kongens Have. There is a small cafe or you cpould pick up some food at close by Torvehallerne. Since it is a botanical garden as well flover enthusiasts will have an added bonus.

My wife and I play a game known as geocaching, and it takes us to some very interesting places; places we might not have visited had it not been for this game. The Botanical Gardens were one such place, and we are so glad that we were brought here because it is a hidden gem of a location. Neither of... More

I am visiting this place as often as I can and have free time. Unfortunately is not open so long, on summer until 17 on winter 16. Garden is not so big, but you can have a quiet time there far away from city noise, even is so located so close to it. Is worth to see Green Gardens, and... More
