Last Sunday, I posted some images of the Frederiksborg Castle chapel. This week I’ll share with you some of the images from the castle ground gardens – it’s totally free to walk around and honestly I was super impressed with the grounds. In the past I’ve visited Versailles, in France, and I can see why this place is considered the Versailles of Denmark – but I’ll dare say it’s nicer than Versailles. It’s clean, less crowded, doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to get in. Simply a beautiful walk to take on a sunny bright day a short train ride from Copenhagen city centre. Have a look below!
So I’ve shown you The Black Diamond (Den Sorte Diamant) a while back, but not this gem of a garden hidden behind it. I intended to share these photos much earlier, but I honestly there are so many pictures piling up on my computer that I forget about, and I can’t keep track of what I’ve shared already on this blog, ha. I’m going to have to start organising my categories a bit better 🙂 But this just goes to show that Copenhagen is an endlessly beautiful and picturesque city. A true gem for photographers.
Den Konglige Biblioteks Have (The Royal Library Garden) is a little garden sanctuary tucked away in the middle of the city, a short distance from The Black Diamond. It is a really peaceful place to walk around – there are cute little benches and chairs dotted around, a fountain in the middle of the garden, and a statue of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. I know I probably say that every park I’ve been to in Copenhagen is my “favourite”, but well…this special place is too 🙂
I feel like I’ve shared many lovely green spaces with you on my blog already, but let me tell you…Frederiksberg Have is a real treat! This park is a little haven away from the buzz of the city, not that the city has much buzz at the moment…ha. I find all the parks in Copenhagen quite “fancy” (like, extremely well kept and super clean – just look at the pristine hedges in the photos) but this one is particularly so. It’s less than a ten minute bike ride away from me, so I feel fortunate to have all this practically in my back yard. You’ll see lots of families and groups of friends having picnics in this park, and lots of ducks and geese walking around and shedding feathers on the grass. Just the other week I finished a book here on my little picnic blanket 🙂
