    Chill out in Kongens Have.

    Kongens Have.

    Favorite thing: Kongens Have (the kings garden) is one of the favorite places to hang out for the people of Copenhagen if it´s sunny.
    It´s a pleasant park situated right in the center of Copenhagen and in the middle of the park you have one of the nicest castles in Copenhagen, Rosenborg.
    A very nice park for a picknik, a game of football or just some sunbading.
    The park has places where you can barbeque and you can also play football, frisbee or any other outdoor sport there as the park has a lot of space.

    The Secret Garden

    The Library Gardens

    Favorite thing: This for me was a quiet little get-away in a busy city centre. It was like walking into a secret garden. It is actually the library gardens, which is a beautiful spot. It has a lovely fountain, with ducks paddling around, large trees, flowers and the stunning red-brick library.

    There is a statue here of the Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. Kierkegaard is known as the 'father of existentialism'. (Existentialism is a popular philosophical movement, where life is not so much of the biology of a human being, but of the key characteristics, feelings of a person, like: freedom, fear, consciousness of existing and awareness of death).

    To me these gardens seemed to be like a little haven. And while a lot of people (particularly locals) are probably aware of these gardens, it still felt like a secret garden to me, that not a lot of people knew about.

    Directions
    An entrance to the gardens can be found on the South-East side of Christiansborg Slot.

    Palmehus

    It's a jungle out there

    Favorite thing: Inside the Botanic Gardens you'll find the Palmehus. This is a a glass building where they created a rainforest. In the main hall, you can even climb up to see the trees from above. And there are many smaller rooms with all kinds of plants you'd associate with a jungle.

    Favorite thing: Pleasant, formally laid-out gardens at the intersection of Gothersgade and Kronprinsessegade. This would be a nice place to bring a picnic lunch - just not on a rainy day!

    Favorite thing: I can't recall the name of this lake where the locals will come and play the ice skating during the winter time, could anyone please tell me the name of this lake in Denmark??

    Favorite thing: The botanic gardens are a nice place to visit for a half day. There's lots of open space, water and trees to enjoy.
