- Amaliehaven's royal gardens were donated to the city by the A.P. Møller Fund and Møller's wife, Chastine McKinney Møller. When the gardens were laid out in 1983, they were strongly debated and criticized. However, the people of Copenhagen have accepted and grown to love the beautiful gardens, where you will find many exotic plants and trees. There is a magnificent view over the harbor, Amalienborg Slotsplads with Saly's equestrian statue, and the Frederiks Church. The gardens were designed by the Belgian, Jean Delonge. The four bronze pillars and the two fountains were created by Italian sculptor, Arnoldo Pormodoro.
