“Dinner at the Gardens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We were looking for some typical Danish fare. Service was very slow and only one other table in the restaurant was occupied. Wine reccomendationwas good but expensive (ask the price before accepting a reccomendation). Meal was OK but not as "Danish" as we were looking for.

“Nice park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

Just a very nice relaxed park to be with some few animals as well and some minor fun for the kids. Good place for a picknick if you are in the area of Kolding.

“Spacious, affordable, beautiful - a great morning out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

A party of three generations (the youngest being our 3-year old daughter) we visited Kolding Geographical Gardens one morning in July 2011 after two days of heavy rain. There is a small fee to enter (I think around £6 per adult, discounts for over 60s). The large gardens are set out to reflect the local plants of various parts of the world, including China, Japan and the Americas. There are artificial rock formations, streams and fountains, but all done in an understated way. My daughter had great fun being an explorer / cave fairy etc. Plenty of space for children of all ages to run around and lots of things to see. Wild stawberries too! It was very quiet on the day of our visit (many people put off by the weather I think) and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. There is a sizeable rose garden in the summer and also a greenhouse which has tables inside, presumably for picnics. Additionally, there is a small outside aviary and an area where goats and a donkey are kept which you can easily access for no extra charge. Playpark is next to the cafe, located by the entrance. More than one set of toilets within the gardens and benches provided in rose garden area. Maps provided at entrance together with a quiz sheet. Coffees etc were pricey, but this was our experience throughout Denmark. Advisable to wear walking shoes / trainers as the paths are not concreted, so you really feel like you're in the thick of things!
If you are travelling care of a sat nav, don't be put off if it directs you through residential streets. The main entrance seems to be tucked away a bit.
Overall a great morning out, highly recommended.
