Category: Parks and gardens | Posted: Thu Aug 27, 2009 5:11 pm

This trip was a short train-trip over to one of our Nordic neighbors; Denmark. Copenhagen have some really nice parks and gardens to visit, but let us start with Copenhagen botanical garden.

This is a very big garden with a lot of different plants in many different growing habitat.

There are no entrance fee for the park, but no walking on the lawn!

The main gate with the information boot...


Once you are inside you follow the mainstream and then you will end up here:


Next path will lead you to a man-made hill filled with plants :)


On that hill you will find a lot of plants that like to live in a stone garden.


Over the hill and you will se their magnificence glasshouse!!


Yes, I know. I am still impressed of it. The water lily pond i front of it is a beauty!

Lets go a little closer...


Oh well, there where some repair on the glasshouse, but it's nice that they use white scaffold.

Maybe we shall take a look on the other side?


Now then, lets go inside....ops, it's not open :(

The only downer in this park is the opening hour of the glass house!

-----------------------------------------------------
"The Palm House

Alpine plants:

In the winter season closed to the public.
The new greenhouse with endangered species:
13.00-15.00 (Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and holidays)"
-------------------------------------------------------

Well, you have to make a schedule!

However, lets go inside!


There where not so much in flower inside...


Piiiiuh, it was really hot inside!! A stroll over to another corner of the park.


And before they let you in again in another part of the glass house, we stroll around the pond.


And finally they open the house that I really want to enter!


Well, that's a stroll in Copenhagen botanical garden :)

What a lovely tour Christer. The glasshouse really is magnificent. The lily pond is beautiful and looking over it to the glasshouse is certainly a view to remember.
I dount if I would have had the courage to go up that spiral staircase though as I'm not tooo keen on heights. The cactus house looks splendid.

Thanks for taking us on the tour of the Copenhagen Botanical Garden.
