The University Garden at Frederiksberg
In the center of Frederiksberg you will find the University Gardens of the University of Copenhagen. It is a small botanical garden and is one of the prettiest green spots around Copenhagen. It is used by locals as a hangout on sunny days and a place for dog and baby walking. A peaceful and quiet spot for plant lovers. The garden is surrounded by some of the picturesque historic buildings of the old University of Copenhagen.
In Danish the garden is called Landbohøjskolens Have which refers to the former name of this part of the university that was formerly the agricultural college that merged with the University of Copenhagen in 2007.
The University Garden hosts a number of rare plants and endagered spieces, such as the deciduous conifer,
Metasequoia glyptostroboides, and a specimen of the giant redwood tree -Sequoiadendron giganteum.
The University Gardens is a beautiful place in the fall when the fall leaves turn the place into a panorama of yellow, brown and red.
