I went there on a cold, windy day to enjoy the lovely plants in the greenhouses. The place is in the city center, but it's not crowded. You can choose different routes, e.g. with poisonous plants! Worth spendind your time there.

Be sure to get the the main greenhouse before 5pm (when it closes) for free access and to find the spiral staircases that take you on a circular tour around the top of this amazing glass house. Nice cafe outside.

You have to visit the botanical gardens. A small pond in the centre of the garden, lots and lots of green and flowers. Many people relaxing either by walking or by laying in the grass it's really quiet and relaxing.

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

When is it open, as I see conflicting opinions? I would like to visit the Palm house, as I collect and grow Palm trees myself. It is good to visit these places for more inspiration. 😊👍

Hello everyone, Do you know if I am allowed to bring my dog with me here - kings-garden? Their website is not working and i have sent them an email and i've tried to call them but without any luck :( I'd like to go there on Thursday, with my dog and have a picnic, if it's possible. So, what you think guys, is it possible to bring my dog and have a picnic in the garden? Thank you for your help. Alexa
