“Small but well laid out”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Botanical Gardens represent contrasts - the layout is very well organized and very neat - it is shaped around a lake and has a lot of interesting flora and fauna - I saw two red squirrels - something I don't often see coming from Australia. However I was surprised by their Palm House which seemed to me to be very overgrown and needing a good prune, but they were some beautiful butterflies in one section of it which I thought was delightful.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were there on a cold October day but still appreciated the layout and variation. The visit to the Greenhouse there needs a significant amount of time- remember that it closes early so don't leave it too late in the day.

“Lovely Detour”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I happened upon the gardens by accident, I was walking to the national gallery when I saw the garden, I decided to cut through to see greenery rather than the road. I was glad I did, it was a bit early in the year for blooms but it was still lovely and peaceful.

“Lovely gardens”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

A really nice place to go for a little walk if you've been rushing around the city all day. It's a little area of peace and quiet to enjoy in Copenhagen.
