Secret gardens of Copenhagen

Visit some of the less known gardens and parks where the locals hide on warm summer days

You are probably familiar with the Botanical Garden at Østerbro. Fælledparken, Kongens Have and Kastellet are also familiar gardens to most Copenhageners and tourists. However, in this list you find a few not so well known parks where the locals hide in summertime.
All parks here can be visited freely without admission. And if you are looking for more free places to visit, look here.

Haveselskabets Have

Right at the main entrance to Fredriksberg’s gardens you will find this little gem. Despite its central location, this is a quiet park with many corners where you can hide and dream. You will find more info about this great park here.

Landbohøjskolens Have

While in Frederiksberg, you must not miss visiting the Landbohøjskolens gardens. There are actually several different universities associated with the University of Copenhagen. The sea runs in a romantic style and you can experience all the different elements. So here you can wander around the forest while open green spaces are close at hand.
Grønnegårdsvej 15

Another secret park in Copenhagen


My personal favourite. A very central location and still a lot of visitors miss this beautiful pearl. This park is so easy to reach and will offer you many beautiful views. The lake is the main theme and also all the sculptures makes this an exciting visit.
Nørre Farimagsgade

An almost painfully beautiful place for rest and reflection

Det Kongelige Biblioteks Have

This centrally located park hides between Christiansborg Castle and Det Kgl. Library. So enjoy the silence and the greenery in the middle of the city.
That there has been water here in the past can be seen not least because of the mooring rings along the walls. In this secret park you will also find a sculpture of Søren Kierkegaard.
Proviantpassagen 1

A unique park that is easy to miss and exciting to visit

The Opera park

Probably unknown now but will be talked about everywhere before long. Because this park will open in 2023 and the location is very spectacular. It´s right next to the canal and just close to the new Opera. It was created with private funds, but the public will have access.

The park is completely surrounded by water

Behind Glyptoteket

In fact, there is a small, exquisite park just behind the Glyptoteket. and at the same time as you enjoy the greenery together with high-quality sculptures, you can hear the shouts of joy from the Tivoli fairground!
Dantes Plads 7

On this side of the building there are some swastikas on the facade


In the absolute most central part of Copenhagen, by the town hall square, there is a small park that many people actually miss. It is the inner courtyard of the town hall itself that is in question. Here you can find peace and enjoy the greenery, at the same time as the commotion goes on at Tivoli next door.
In addition, the facade from inside the park is filled with strange sculptures and decorations to look at.
The entrance is along HC Andersens Boulevard. A small sign shows the way.
Open 9-16 during the summer (May to September).
