“A lovely green space in Copenhagen”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

I visited this twice when I was there. I had to go back as the greenhouses were shut when I got there at 4pm the first time - they shut at 3pm, so check. The Palm houses are beautiful structures and you can climb up the stairs and look down on the plants while you walk round the path at the top. Everything is well labelled. There are a variety of gardens - and it is a Botanic garden not a 'pleasure' garden - and we enjoyed the walk round examining the different types of plants. There is a very good shop with beautiful posters and cards for sale, as well as plants.

“Wonderful gardens, and smells of herbs!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Before we headed back to the warmth of our hotel, we thought we would have a walk through the botanical gardens. We are glad we did. It was a pleasant and peaceful area to get away from the hassle and bustle of the city. Wonderful bright and colourful flowers and gardens. Plus, the added bonus of having their own herb gardens. You could smell the different herbs from quite a way away. There are also areas where you walk around the rock pools and the wooded areas. You felt like you were in north Wales or the West Country. Ok, maybe not. But it was a pleasant experience to sit down on one of many benches scattered around the gardens, and watch birds, insects and people wondering around. A great place to relax and read a book, laze around or just sit down and be calm. A must for the stressful person.

“Very good and classical botanical gardens”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Very nice botanical garden, especially the alpline area (which is by the way currently under reconstruction). The glasshouses are also quite good, open every day 10-15. Note that the special glasshouses with cacti and orchiods have very narrow opening times, 1 hour each of saturday and sunday between 13 and 15.

“Nice park”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

It's a good place to have lunch and enjoy a rest under shady trees but not if you are looking for something special like theme gardens or lots of colour or topiary. A pleasant stroll.

“Check opening times!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Quite a pretty garden. There are impressive glasshouses, but they are NOT open every day and they are NOT open throughout the days when they are open. So.....check times carefully before you go!
