Botanical Garden

Visit splendid greenhouses and see the national flower of Denmark at this beautifully landscaped university research facility in the heart of the city.

Copenhagen’s carefully maintained Botanical Garden contains the largest collection of plants in Denmark. Its centerpiece is a complex of 19th-century glasshouses. See the country’s national flower, walk through the public greenhouses and relax in this beautifully landscaped haven in the inner city.

The Botanical Garden dates back to 1870 and today covers 10 hectares (25 acres) of land. The gardens are part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark and are operated by the University of Copenhagen. The gardens remain an active research facility and serve as an educational facility as well as a great place to relax in the sun in summer or take shelter in chilly weather.

Make your way through the gardens by following the clearly labeled paths. Each garden is organized by plant type and carries Latin names as well as the Danish version. 

The Danish garden features over 900 species. Walk among the native fir trees or find the country’s native flower, the Marguerite daisy. Other sections include collections of perennials and annuals, a rock garden and a large display of rhododendrons.

Visit the pride and joy of the Copenhagen Botanical Garden: the large complex of historic glasshouses. The ornate buildings date from 1874. Fungi and palms grow within one section. An air-conditioned greenhouse contains a collection of Arctic plants, while heated greenhouses feature cacti, succulents and orchids.

Discover more than 2 million specimens of dried flora used by researchers as reference materials in the botanical museum and herbarium. Rest and have a snack in the onsite café or shop for local seeds and souvenirs. 

The Copenhagen Botanical Garden is in the heart of Copenhagen, just a five-minute walk from Nørreport metro station. It is best to come here on foot or by bike, but you can also pay for street parking outside the university. The main entrance is on Gothersgade. The gardens are open daily from May until September and are closed Mondays for the remainder of the year. Admission is free.
