Denmark has several pretty parks in the city center but the Botanic Gardens are in a league by themselves. They’re free to enter, and you can happily wander along pathways lined with rhododendrons, through alpine gardens, and around the lake. However the star attractions are the huge glasshouses that date from 1874 and were inspired by London’s famous Crystal Palace. Inside the main building, the Palm House, a vertigo-inducing spiral staircase leads you up to a walkway suspended inside the dome at the height of the canopy of the palm trees. It’s simply remarkable.
