Description

The King's Garden in Copenhagen - sometimes referred to as Rosenborg Garden - was laid out during the reign of King Christian IV in connection to his pleasure Palace.

The huge flowerbeds are is a spectacular sight during the summer months.

The gardens are the country's oldest royal gardens and were established in the Renaissance style by Christian IV in the early 1600's.

Today the gardens are a popular retreat in the centre of Copenhagen, and are visited by an estimated 2.5 million people per year.

Although the park has undergone several major changes, the three entrances have been preserved. Inside the park you will find the Hercules Pavillon, and the famous statue of Hans Christian Andersen.

The gardens are home to a large herbaceous border, a rose-garden and a multitude of different-sized sculptures.
