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.

The gardens are beautiful and the information about the different plants is very interesting. The botanical garden is free to visit and is definitely worth a visit. I especially liked all the butterflies in the last room/greenhouse :D

The garden/park is very beautiful and is situated right next to "!Den Gamle By". Nice place for a picnic or just for a walk in the park. The greenhouses are ok, but not spectacular.

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.
