King's Gardens at Rosenborg Castle

Denmark's Oldest Park

Expert Pick Family Time Must See

Øster Voldgade 4 B
Copenhagen, 1350


The oldest park in Denmark, Kongens Have, was laid out when Christian IV commissioned the building of Rosenborg Castle in 1634. Some parts of the original Renaissance garden are intact. The Baroque 18th century brought several lovely lime tree-lined paths; the 19th century saw the park re-landscaped according to English ideals. Dozens of stunning sculptures adorn the park including one of Hans Christian Andersen, who found inspiration for his fairytales here. Gardens are open until sunset.
