Garden Nature / Park
Amaliehaven is a small park located between Amalienborg Palace and the waterfront in the Frederiksstaden neighbourhood of central Copenhagen, Denmark. A relatively new park, it was established in 1983 as a gift from the A.P. Møller and the Chastine McKinney Møller Foundation. The park is now part of the so-called Frederiksgade axis, the shorter but more distinctive of the two axes on which Frederiksstaden is centred.Larsens PladsAmaliehaven is located on a site where there used to be a shipyard established in 1802 by a wealthy ship-owner named Lars Larsen. The shipyard and its large lumberyard were situated right beside Amalienborg Palace and called “Larsen’s Plads” since 1821 its founder.In 1870 the shipyard was closed and a new port terminal was established at the site in 1879 by the Thingvalla Line which began operations of a direct route between Scandinavian ports and America which was to offer the growing number of Scandinavian emigrants affordable, comfortable and safe voyages. In 1898 the Thingvalla Line was acquired by DFDS, another Danish based shipping company, and the Scandinavian-American passenger service was operated under the name Scandinavian America Line.The route to America with Scandinavian America Line was discontinued in 1935 and the quay area was later taken over by the Oslo Ferries which started in 1866 and has since relocated to the Free Port Terminal further north.

  • A great beautiful little park with stunning flowers, water features and water fountain. Great to stand next to on a hot day. Lots of benches to take a rest on. It's not big but worth a short visit.  more »

  • Beautiful postmodernist park close to Frederiksstaden. Excellent view of the Opera.
  • Beautiful square by the harbor, overlooking the opera house and the square of the royal residence. It has a fountain and some gardens.
  • Amaliehaven (English: The Amalie Garden) is a small park located between Amalienborg Palace and the waterfront in the Frederiksstaden neighbourhood of central Copenhagen, Denmark. Amaliehaven is a rectangular park built to a stringent, symmetrical design centred on a large fountain to respect and accentuate the Frederiksgade axis which unifies the entire area. On both sides of the central fountain, the gardens continue on two levels, with shrubs and walls enclosing it from the waterfront on one side and the street on the other.
  • Beautiful garden and the view from there is extraordinary! I can very much recommend to walk along the sea to the little mermaid from there. It's especially beautiful in the summer but also very special in the winter.
  • Was nice to get out of the cold winds, just enjoy it.😊

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
