Visiting the Garden

  • Please do not enter the flower beds or climb the trees. 
  • Bring home a good experience, but leave flowers, seeds, and other plants in the garden. 
  • Dogs and other pets are not allowed in the garden.
  • Bicycles are not allowed in the garden.
  • It is allowed to sit on the lawns in selected areas. Please see the overview map of the garden. 
  • Games, athletic exercises etc. are not permitted. 
  • Camp fires, fuel stoves, and barbecues are not permitted. 
  • Push chairs, prams and buggies are allowed in but due to very narrow paths, they are not permitted inside the greenhouses. 

Coffee wagon

The coffee wagon in the Botanical Garden serves refreshments under the open sky, and the opening hours are therefore weather dependent.


Restrooms are located behind the Botanical Garden Shop, next to the main entrance at Nørreport Station. 
Visitors in the Palm House also have access to toilets in this area. 


Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to visit the listed Palm House in the Botanical Garden with a wheelchair – we are working to improve access as soon as possible.

Outside in the botanical garden there are good conditions for wheelchairs. In the Rock Garden with alpine plants and on the Observatory Hill there are steep climbs where it may be necessary to have a helper.


Journalists wishing to visit the Natural History Museum of Denmark must be accredited in advance. Please contact the museum's communications department for this.

Photography and film 

As a private individual, you are more than welcome to take pictures in the garden and inside the green houses. However, commercial photos shoots and videos are not possible.


Please enjoy your own food in sitting zones, but not inside the greenhouses.
