Early Spring and not much going on outside yet but good collection inside from around the world. Interesting Victorian glass greenhouses with small iron spiral stairways to view jungle from above. Best to visit when not too busy as pathways are narrow.

It's a good place to have a wander (for free) after the Rosenberg Slot and warm up in the steamy Palm house on a cold day!

We spent in the area of the gardens like one hour, it was nice, plants were huge, flowers were beautiful and gardens are well designed :) And free entry. Nice for a short chill walk, but not necessarily a must place.

This is our first full day in happy Københaven (we are here for only 9 nights). We began our walk from the hotel at 8:00 a.m. and arrived just as the gates were opening at 8:30 a.m. Free visit to wander to our delights and wander we did amongst the various sculptures and copper colored squirrels.

Such and amazing garden to walk through. We went through in April so it wasn't as beautiful as it could look but was still nice.

A great way to spend an hour or two, free and very peaceful. Main building has tropical plants, including a spiral stairway to view a floor above.

Nice strolling. I don't write long reviews. You will enjoy if you like natural beauty in middle of a city. Plus free public bathrooms. Enjoy!

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.
