Frederiksborg Slotshave

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!

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 🙂

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 🙂
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.
