Spring Blooms in Copenhagen

Romantic, Things to Do — By Jane Graham on February 22, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Copenhagen’s many green spaces burst with color come April and May. Here’s where to add the floral to your spring visit—and places where you can experience beautiful flower arrangements all year round.

Outdoor blooms

Frederiksberg Have

Over 300 years old, this English-inspired royal garden, with its long lawns and pretty boating lake, is the perfect spot for a city breather. The Royal Danish Garden Society’s garden is located at the edge of Frederiksberg Have, on the corner of Pile Allé and Frederiksberg Runddel.

Kongens Have

King Christian IV’s royal kitchen garden and promenading park from the early 1600s remains Copenhagen’s most elegant—and popular—inner-city park. Its immaculate flower beds radiate color from March onwards; free entry.

Tivoli Gardens

The pleasure gardens open for their 170th season on April 12th 2012 and while kids and teens come mainly for the rides, the thousands of flowers in bloom around the park, especially around the lake, offer quieter pleasures.

Indoor arrangements

The Palm House at the Botanical Gardens

The tropical greenhouse of Copenhagen’s Botanisk Have is the ideal place to chill out with a good book or even for a secluded romantic rendezvous, and is filled with lush vegetation all year round.

The Winter Garden, Glyptoteket

The subtropical winter garden is the centerpiece of this wonderful museum of art and antiquities, designed with a high oval glass ceiling to encase the 60-foot palm trees. The stunning setting for the museum’s cafe, you can enjoy light snacks and coffee while basking in its ambience.

Tage Andersen Boutique & Gallery

Copenhagen’s most exclusive florists is not just a flower shop; all the blooms here are given a hand-designed vase and a proper setting. Andersen’s stunning creations can also be viewed in the store’s permanent gallery.
