A Morning Stroll through the Copenhagen Botanical Garden
I discovered the Copenhagen Botanical Garden prior to our trip when researching free things to do in Copenhagen. In expensive Copenhagen, we were on a quest to find all the free and affordable activities we could find.
So early one morning, before heading to Torvehallerne for breakfast, we decided to take a short stroll through the garden which was just a short walk from our hostel off of Gothersgade. It was a freezing cold spring morning, and barely anyone else was out yet which was nice because except for a few other visitors, we had the entire garden to ourselves.
The gardens, which are part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark which is a part of the University of Copenhagen, are home to the largest collection of living plants and the only genebank for wild plants. Because of the frigid weather, the plants and other vegetation appeared lacking, but then again, we didn’t venture into any of the garden’s 27 glasshouses. While the garden’s mission is to maintain and collect living and preserved plants and fungi for research, teaching, and public information purposes, we were simply there for a quick diversion.
Here are some pictures from our morning stroll…Plan Your Visit Entrance Addresses: Gothersgade 130, 1353 Copenhagen K; Øster Farimagsgade 2 B, 1353 Copenhagen K Cost: Free Visiting Hours: Click here ——————————————————–
