Learn about Denmark's flora through this extensive collection of plants and fungi. The Botanical Gardens and Museum houses a seed bank and a library that specializes in books about plants and trees. It's also a great place to take a walk. The Botanical Gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter, and every day until 6 p.m. from May through September.

The Botanical Garden is a beautiful park, but not particularly in winter. But the old Palm House from cast iron and glass, a greenhouse from 1874, is extra special. And warm. High and partly round, 2 floors, accessible by winding stairs. And filled with tall plants like bamboo, bananas and cocoa. Great for pictures! In winter, restricted opening scedule: October... More

Botanical Gardens in Copenhagen is another gem in the middle of Copenhagen. There's a large lake and a huge greenhouse with lots of beautiful plants and flowers.

Just returned from a long weekend in Copenhagen.day one was very cold and wet so we decided to visit the botanical gardens to escape the weather for a while. Although we visited in February so the gardens were not at their best, you can imagine that these gardens would be absolutely beautiful in the summer. Lots of paths to walk... More

A pleasant hour's stroll through these gardens in the bitter cold, could have been made more pleasant had some indoor areas been open.

Lovely place to visit for a plant enthusiast. Even in the summer it was very quiet in the morning. Take a picnic because there's no where to buy food except a couple of small coffee stands. Tip - the toilets are very hard to find, they are round the back behind the greenhouses

Very poorly kept. I guess it should be better during summer where the trees are all green but still it looks like it's in poor state. It's small as well, better the outside and the garden itself.

We love to stop in and wander a bit to see the plants and climb the stairs to walk around the green house. It's free and a great way to expose your children to botany in small chunks of time. We have been going for months and never tire of seeing and learning about plants.

I visited this place in January so I didn't expect much of it, well of the outer space generally. But greenhouses were fun and really worth the visit! Especially greenhouses with palm trees, as I am from non egzotic country, this was a really great place to see the variaty of all kinds of interesting plants. The bonus is that... More

Always good for a walk or picnic with your family or friends. The Green House is also worthy to visit, especially if you got cold :)

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
