Literally translating to ‘the Kings’ Garden’, Kongens Have forms the adjoining area of the Rosenborg Castle and is loved for its lush green surroundings that make way for romantic pathways, neatly arranged flowers and an old-world charm that pulls tourists and locals all year round. The park dates back to the early 17th century and was built on the orders of King Christian IV who wanted a Renaissance styled garden that could yield fruits and vegetables. Today, the Kongens Have is the oldest park in the city and is cherished for its tree-lined avenues, sculptures and rhododendrons.
The Marionette theatre hosts free performances during summer season and is often the reason why many locals love to spend an evening here. For sun lovers, getting a tan here as you are surrounded by the elegantly landscaped area, is an ideal way to embrace summers. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Copenhagen itinerary 2 days.

Such a tranquil place in a busy city. Not that Copenhagen is very busy but once you step in the park it's a great place to relax and enjoy the park. It is fairly big with plenty of grassy spots to sit down and relax. There are wonderful trees all over the place to sit in the shade to nap or just people watch. You will also be treated to great views of the palace and be able to visit it since it's close.
Nice place to hangout and spend time with your friend or beloved, has nice arrangements of trees that looks good on photos, and states as well complimenting the garden, went there on summer so there is no flowers, but in spring i heard the flowet will bloom there and looks super pretty. And the castle near the garden as well is beautiful.
Nice garden, but it's probably better to visit this place during summer time where you can still see leaves on the trees. Take a walk around and just relax, there's nothing much to do other than some people watching...
The royal place. If you like Danish history it's a place you must see. Don't miss to visit the treasury house. The park around the mansion is beautiful but you cannot compare it with parks in Vienna, Paris or Prague. Still it's worth to go there and spend some peaceful moments. Especially in Spring and Some when the sun is shining on the sky 🌄
Wonderful park right next to the botanical garden with the world's oldest greenhouse, the royal jewelry museum and other wonderful museums.
