One of the beautiful parks located in the heart of Copenhagen. You have small nice shops located around it and you can find plenty of nice little restaurants or take away food which you can bring there. Dogs are alowed :-)

Beautifull little garden in the center of the city! Great for a break or a short walk. Bring a sandwich and sit down and relax and take in the atmosphere!

I walked into the oldest park in Copenhagen and enjoyed the well kept grounds. There is a children's play area at one end, a theatre that offers free performance at times. Lovely walkways and gardens. I didn't go into Rosenborg castle but it is lovely to look.

Very special place - well worth the visit and grounds are open free to the public (except for the palace). Even in the rain, this was a very enjoyable space to explore. The herbacious border is especially lovely - it is hidden and you have to find it! Walk all over this garden to uncover its treasures - if you... More

I'll assume you're visiting Rosenborg Castle (which you should) so its definitely worth checking out the surrounding gardens while you're there. As others have suggested this is 'just a garden' but what more do you need? Grab a picnic lunch and head down for the afternoon. The gardens are well manicured and have a great atmosphere.

We walked through Kongens Have/The King's Garden with Copenhagen Free Walking Tours. It's a pretty, well kept park with Rosenborg Castle in the background. It's around 400 years old and connected to Christian IV, who we find to be the most interesting Danish Monarch. The 'Flower Lawn' was unfortunately without flowers on our visit in June.

This is a park, and not much more. Though you have some nice "amenities" as it is bike free, has public toilets and a laid back atmosphere. Top tip is to head for coffe house and enjoy some local ice cream while sitting in the sun.

"King's Garden" is a beautiful place very near the Rosenborg castle and is stunning in its Scandinavian simplicity and splendor. It is a very relaxing and visually stimulating FREE experience. Perfectly manicured and impeccably laid out, you will certainly be pleased if not impressed.

This is a great place for a summer day picnic, a run or a romantic walk. Rosenborg Castle is located in the park so you can make a combo. This is also where the Royal guards Amalienborg are situated. When the daily change of guards are occurring they will commence their walk from here to Amalienborg castle. The park is... More

The oldest and most visited park in Copenhagen was established in the early 17th century as a private garden of the Rosenborg Castle. It was first organized in the Renaissance style, but later changed its appearance to the typical Baroque garden. It is a wonderful place, with amazing flowerbeds, statues and monuments.

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.
