We are renovating the paths in the Botanical Garden


The paths in the Botanical Garden will be renovated over the next few years. The first stage starts now, and until medio December 2023 the main entrance at Nørreport will therefore be the only entrance and exit to the garden.

Flowers in the Botanical Garden

The existing paths in the Botanical Garden have to be renovated in order to handle and improve accessibility for the garden's many visitors. At the same time, a rainwater simulation has shown a need to ensure better drainage of the paths in the event of heavy downpours, which we unfortunately are likely to experience more of in the future.

In order for the garden to remain open to guests throughout the renovation period, the renovation will take place in three stages until 2025. The first stage will take place from May to medio December 2023 and will apply to the part of the garden facing Sølvgade. Therefore, the only entrance and exit to the garden will temporarily be via the main entrance at Nørreport. See the map of the Botanical Garden here.

The Botanical Garden is part of the Natural History Museum of Denmark and differs markedly from other parks in the big city by being a living museum with research, communication, teaching, and nature conservation as its main tasks.

Due to the garden's history and conservation value, we proceed cautiously to take care of the rare plants and the protected garden, which has been located on Østervold since 1874.
