'Enjoy the Danish Cosiness II' - Frederiksberg Garden, Copenhagen, Denmark

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

At the main entrance, visitors are officially received by Frederik VI, a former king much beloved by his people, so one is fully aware of entering his garden, where he used to be rowed about on the canals saluting his subjects. The statue's pedestal has the following inscription: 'Here he felt happy in the midst of loyal people'.

These days, Svendsen's Boat Service will do the rowing for you. Boat tours operate all summer. The boat tour will give you a good idea of the vastness of the gardens. On the tour you will see the Frederiksberg Palace, towering on a hill top, many lovely little bridges, and the Chinese Pavilion that was erected in 1799 as a Royal tea house.

For centuries, the Frederiksberg Gardens has been a favorite outing spot for Copenhageners. Many bring their picnic baskets for lunch and top off the day by visiting the Copenhagen Zoo in the northernmost end of the gardens. For horticultural inspiration, visit the lovely gardens of the Royal Horticultural Society at the main entrance.
