Learn about Denmark's flora through this extensive collection of plants and fungi. The Botanical Gardens and Museum houses a seed bank and a library that specializes in books about plants and trees. It's also a great place to take a walk. The Botanical Gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter, and every day until 6 p.m. from May through September.

Nice green piece of town. Different than other parks so worth a visit. Specialy to admire some tropical plants in the greenhouse.

It is a refreshing spot after being in museums and crowdy streets. The range of exhibits is big, lots to see. Free of charge if I remember clearly.

Really beautiful garden to walk around in. Bring your headphones, a picnic, book and you're all set on a sunny day. Visit the greenhouse too

The Botanical Gardens do not really offer so much in terms of originality, but if you are stuck for something to do in the summer, and the weather is good, then pop along, dump yourself down on the grass and just chill for an hour or so. There is a large tropical 'greenhouse' you can wander around, but it is... More

This is a beautiful garden where the city sounds seem to evaporate into the beautiful vegetation! Great for a little walk or break on a bench!

This is my favourite place to spend a day in Copenhagen, great option for families with children of all ages, couples and just people on their own. It also has nice lunch options if you don't bring your own. A slice of peace and tranquillity in a very touristy city!

We checked the hours and the place was supposed to be open so we got dropped by cab here. Then discovered it was closed, so we had to schlep back to the city center. Very disappointing.

Most of the main garden in hibernating mode for winter, but the palace had plants to look around. Prob best to visit in summer

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood 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.
