Copenhagen Botanical GardenFree: All time

The University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden, or usually referred to simply as Copenhagen Botanical Garden, is located in the center of Copenhagen. It covers an area of 10 hectares and is particularly noted for its large complex of 27 glasshouses. Due to the cold Danish climate, these heated glasshouses are necessary for most of the plants. Some houses are not opened to the public but can be viewed from outside. The botanical gardens contain more than 13,000 species, almost all of which have been collected in the wild.
