Copenhagen's Botanical Garden
Øster Voldgade / Gothersgade, 1353 København Route Planner
The Green Guide


This superb garden was created in around 1870 on land made available when the fortifications were demolished. Dotted with large greenhouses housing palms, cacti and orchids, shaded by grand old trees and with a man-made lake, it belongs to the Natural History Museum. The two museums belong to this same institution: the Zoological Museum (skeletons and stuffed animals) and the Geological Museum (fine collection of rocks from Denmark and Greenland).
