For a free lesson about Denmark's rich plant life, visit Botanical Garden, an oasis of greenery in the city's central district. The extensive park encompasses more than 10 hectares (24 acres) and serves both educational and recreational purposes. A complex of 27 greenhouses are historic buildings from the 1870s that now shelter domestic and exotic plant species, including palms, cacti, orchids, and begonias. A special climate-controlled greenhouse recreates the habitat suitable for growing Arctic plants, while another building protects a large collection of cycad plants, some of which are more than a century old. Put Botanical Garden at the forefront of your travel plans using our Copenhagen route planner.

  • Gorgeous views, plenty of amazing plant species and even some real frogs in the glass house! This is such a lovely garden for a relaxing stroll of a picnic. Would 100% go again.

  • Well worth paying to go into the palm house which is massive (and if you know Kew Gardens in London, it is very similar). Nice sun terrace outside too

  • The best pay for attraction in the city! We were pleasantly surprised when we entered the butterfly room, to see loads flying around. Would really recommend making some time to visit.
  • Nice park-like botanical garden. The large greenhouse, the Palmhuset, is somewhat dated and has overdue maintenance, but the rock garden and the oval with a wide variety of plants are interesting. Of course, this green oasis in the center of Copenhagen is also a good destination to relax. To the northwest is an observatory with a statue of the famous astronomer Tycho Brahe.
