  • A beautiful, serene place. At least after 6PM in August. I discovered a lone rose growing from an impossible place. It was magical.
  • A great place to go in the night time, you may see the view on the city. There is also a nice cafe upstairs b
  • Always a nice walk, view on the city, couple of cafes. Also a good place for people watching and tourists taking selfies in all manner possible and impossible. According to the legend, Danes were given their national flag in that place during their crusade against locals around 1217 or so.
  • Not that large, but pretty well maintained. Our hotel was close by, hence we needed to walk by them to get into the city centre. Perhaps best viewed in the day time as later on you can be in shadow from the high city walls around. Not much to see really but an ideal place for a high of quiet contemplation. A small green oasisvright close to the city centre.
  • Lovely place to sit and see the sunset over old town. Touristy, but plenty of space on the three levels of the gardens.
