Kongens Have, Copenhagen

4.4
#6 of 30 in Parks in Copenhagen
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.

  • Nice place to go with friends or walk the dog. It's large and centrally located. Usually you will find many young adults or late teens there, sitting on the grass or playing drinking games. It could be more beautiful if there were more colourful flowers and just more colours instead mostly just trees and grass.
  • A nice place to relax or walk around. The gardens aren't very large but there is parkland attached. It is also conveniently located on the 26 bus route which a couple of stops later will drop you near the little mermaid statue.
  • The King's Garden is one of the first places tourist always go to whenever they come to Copenhagen as it is in the very center of the City. Enjoy a stroll around this beauty as it is really big and a lot of things to see. You can find the Rosenborg Castle here which is free to go in the castle yards. But if you want to go in there would be a fee. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy other parts of the garden for free.
  • The sun was finally out in Copenhagen after wet weather the past few weeks! It was lovely to lie on the grass and read a book and just enjoy nature here. You might be able to witness the military honing their drills beside the palace / gardens as they are military grounds just beside. Great place for a picnic and chilling out.
  • This is a very pretty park to explore when the weather is nice. It’s a great place for us to sit down and have a picnic, Especially if you wait in line at the nearby gasoline grill and get one of your epic burgers. This is the perfect landing spot to bring a burger and enjoy. The flowers and strawberry are beautiful and there are many statues. It’s a great place to people watch, and you have a beautiful view of the castle right in front of you.
