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 always cosy and visit the King's garden. Couple or alone, a nice place and take a break. There are always beautiful in the garden, but with different time of year, as each has its charms. Always enjoy a wonderful relaxation time and goes away with renewed energy. My wife and I often takes a packed lunch with, as we sit and enjoy. Would highly recommend this garden.

  • The stone streets, it's nice to depart from the Park, Without suunitelmaa, without any access fees. Despite the fall, many of them had found their way to the Park. A large area and a beautiful texture and plants created a nice contrast to the close and vauhdikkaalle city to the world.

  • Nice well kept and varied park. Here you can see the statue of Hans Christian Andersen, look at the beautiful roses in the rose garden, check out the beautiful apples in Apple Orchard, have a picnic on the lawn or marvel at why they decorated with ball of rock. Why not take the opportunity to pass when you are passing.
