    On a beautiful sunny day the botanical gardens is the place to see. Walk along the stone paths through the gardens, the spring flowers are amazing colours and shapes.

    The hot house also has incredible plants and flowers from all over the world.

    It's a very relaxing place to visit.

    The Botanical Gardens

    The Botanical Gardens (Botanisk Have) lie in the centre of Copenhagen as a breathing hole opposite the Danish National Gallery.
    They were landscape between 1871 and 74 on parts of the old ramparts, which surrounded Copenhagen. The idea behind the gardens was to donate a garden for studies to the students of the university with various herbs, bushes and trees from all parts of the world. In the centre of the gardens lies the Palm House (Palmehuset), a greenhouse with tropical plants, which constitute a small jungle. Via a winding staircase we can get high up and view the plants from above.
    All around the park paths have been laid out for walking, and a couple of lakes have also been laid out with an overgrown wooden bridge.

    Flower Display

    There are some splendid displays of various species of flowers, plants, trees and shrubs. I remember the stunning display of poppies as if it was yesterday. Some of my favourite displays were the orchids in the green houses and the rhododendrons.

    There was also a fine collection of cactii which I personally found impressive.
    Remember though, this is a person who gets a cactus for her birthday rather than flowers!

    Admission is free and the gardens are open between 8.30am and 4pm. It is closed on Mondays.

    Botanical Gardens

    The botanical gardens in Copenhagen were built in the 19th century and belonged to the university. The park is very large and the entrance is free. Of course all donations are always welcome. The main feature in this gardens is the Palmenhuse, where they created an actual rainforest.

    For another walk

    It is a very quite place just in the middle of the city. Free entrance. It was (an I think it is still ...) a place for students to investigate about plants. Worth a walk

    Danish Flowers in May.....

    The flowers are in full beautiful bloom in Copenhagen. In early May, we strolled through parks around the city. It's worth a moment to stop and appreciate nature's colors.
