A visit during autumn colors is definitely worth. Also a very good place for running or morning/evening walk. One can spend good family time here.

Wandered around here when our cruise ship docked here. A nice 20 minute stroll from the terminal. The gardens and hot houses were free to visit. A very enjoyable time for any plant lover

Spent a rainy morning the the Greenhouses. Great indoor option for in-climate weather. The greenhouses are large with a wide variety of well maintained and labeled ecosystems. Admission and Parking are free. A short walk to the Gamle By.

Very good indeed. Interesting, free to enter and cheap coffee ! The children were invited to feed the piranha fish in one of the ponds. The glasshouses have many different plants with helpful labels in english.

Not really. There are several things for even small kids to do and see, touch and enjoy, but no playground. On the other hand, it is very close to a park, with playgrounds.

Not sure, don't think so. There were no dogs in there while i was visiting, so at least it doesn't seem to be done. Guessing guide dogs would be the exception.
