The gardens are a great place to wander and have a picnic in the summer, or just view the plants and birds. The hot house in the middle has a load of exotic plants - there's an upper walkway you can walk around if you're not afraid of heights. Be aware that it is very stuffy in the summer and... More

When to the botanical garden after finding out Rosenberg castle was close 3pm. What a pleasant surprise to have visited this lovely garden. Entrance is free and even though we were there in November, it's still a lovely walk. Lots of things to see, the spiral rock mount with the little water fall was neat. I am sure this is... More

This Botanical Garden is totally free and you can see a lot of interesting plants, even though if you are walking around Copenhagen centre in cold weather, in this place you will stay warm and chilly ! Have fun!

This was one of my favorite activities in Copenhagen. The gardens are huge, with beautiful views. The Palm Garden was surreal, its a very large green house with several sections full of hundreds of different species, a really beautiful and relaxing place.

Unfortunately I was too early for the greenhouse opening, but I would definitely attend have I came an hour later. The walk was mesemerizing and relaxing. We took a break at the pond and watched some enormous fish. There were some students reading and a couple od artists, so the atmosphere was amazing.

We visited the gardens on a crisp November day and although parts of it were not open, we were not disappointed with the stunning display of colour and displays A place worth visiting at every season. We only stay a few hours, but in the summer I could spend hours there

A fantastic setting for a gentle amble. Could not have chosen a nicer place for an afternoon stroll to help my lunch go down.

Botanical Garden is close to Rosenborg Palace and near bus stations, subway, city train Norenport. It is one of many green oasis of Copenhagen and a place where you can relax. Although I have visited this wonderful place in a cloudy day of October still retained its charm and invites to relaxation.

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.
