Den Konglige Biblioteks Have

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 πŸ™‚ 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 SΓΈren 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 πŸ™‚

Frederiksberg Have, Copenhagen

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 πŸ™‚

Grand view of Frederiksberg Palace inside the park.
I’m always impressed by how pristine the parks are in the city.
Plenty of cute creatures waddling about πŸ™‚
There are some very romantic scenes/walks in the place too.
Reflections at sundown…
I detest seagulls but I thought this was a cool shot, ha.
Love the colourful bit of gardening here.

Travel Throwback: Giverny (2019)

Over a year ago, I had the great pleasure of wandering around Monet’s garden in Giverny with my family. Won’t say much more because the photos speak for themselves. See the idyll for yourself…
