Kongens Have

The King’s Garden, which is Copenhagen’s oldest park and still mostly follows its original shape, was created by Christian IV in 1606 as the exclusive gardens of Rosenborg Slot. The gardens provided the royal court with fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers to embellish the royal rooms in the 17th century.

Today, one of the nicest spots in the city for strolling and resting is the shaded public gardens, which are crisscrossed by walkways and include several benches. The statue of Hans Christian Andersen enchants a group of kids with some of his fantastical fairy stories is one of Copenhagen’s most well-known landmarks, along with the grassy open spaces, calm corners, rose gardens, and fountains.
