Kongens Have, Copenhagen
(4.6/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
At Kongens Have, walk the Knight's Path, a lime-tree avenue which intersects the Lady's Path near the center of the park. King Christian IV established a pleasure garden in the Renaissance style  in 1606, which was redesigned in the Baroque style in the 18th century. The oldest and most visited park in the city features statues, monuments, and several historical buildings, including Rosenborg Barracks, home to the Royal Guards. Look for the oldest sculpture in the garden of a lion with a humanoid face which is tearing apart a horse. The early 17th century sculpture most likely illustrates a Persian legend about the battle between light and darkness.

  • It is a very beautiful place that reminds me of Hyde Park in London. Unfortunately in winter the plants aren't flowering and the humedad-frio play against.

  • Nice Green Park that opens in front of the Castle. Very clean and well kept, with large green areas and avenues in the ground where you can walk or jog. Nice pics there Castle view
