"Beautiful Gardens In The Centre Of Town" Botanical Garden Tip by AnnS
Botanical Garden, Copenhagen: 25 reviews and 66 photos
The Botanic Garden is part of Copenhagen University. It's a centre for horticultural learning but many parts are open to the public.
The gardens were first established in 1872 on the site of the city's fortifications. The present rock gardens are part of the old ramparts and the lovely lake, which used to be part of the city moat, is now home to various species of birds.
The gardens are beautifully maintained and it's a pleasure to wander around. You can also visit the large greenhouses to see an impressive collection of palms, orchids and other hot house plants.
Entrance is free.
Address: Øster Farimagsgade 2B, 1353 København K
Directions: You can get there on buses 5A, 14, 40, 42 and 43 but it's easy to walk there from the city centre.
Phone: 3532 2222 / 3532 2240
