The Botanical Garden

The beautiful Botanical Garden is a green oasis in the heart of Copenhagen and home to Denmark’s largest collection of plants from all over the world, incl. species that are extinct in the wild. Here you can go explore among rare cacti and cycads from the age of the dinosaurs.

In the iconic Palm House, you get to experience the rainforest from above, and in the summertime, you will find colourful butterflies fluttering among spectacular orchids and vanilla plants in the Butterfly House. The beautiful, Victorian building was built in 1874 and designed by the architect Peter Christian Bønecke and is made from cast iron and glass. The inspiration came from Crystal Palace in London, built for the 1852 World Exhibition.

The garden has a charming shop and a coffee cart that offers refreshments on sun-blessed days.

The Botanical Garden is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark, which is situated in the corner of the garden.
