A local secret, and an inner-city hideaway.
Søren Kierkegaards Plads 1
1218 Copenhagen, Denmark
A little patch of paradise tucked away between the Royal Library and Christianborg, these small gardens were designed in 1920 on what was once a naval port, though the gardens' central pool is the only reminder of its former incarnation. For those looking for a romantic hideaway, this is the place – in the shadow of the gently weeping trees and amongst blossoming beds of flowers, utterly peaceful save for the hourly cascade of the water fountains. Look out for the statue of philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, captured with pen in hand.
