Bibliotekshaven - the Royal Library Garden (Palaces and Properties Agency)
This tiny park is squeezed in between mighty Christiansborg (housing our Parliament) and the Royal Library on the island of Slotsholmen. It’s very peaceful and quiet (and let’s keep it that way, people), and a favoured spot for those studying for their exams this time of year. Right now the 'beauty bush' is in full bloom, so have a seat under the pink cloud and enjoy whatever you brought.
Free entrance. Note: only ducks are allowed to swim in the fountain…
1 Søren Kierkegaards Plads, 1218 København K. Entrance to the garden through the doorway from Rigsdagsgården, and through the gate at Christians Brygge.
Open 6-22 every day
A bite to eat in/near Bibliotekshaven
Søren K – fabulous view, good cuisine. Situated on the very edge of the harbour, inside Den Sorte Diamant (the Black Diamond), the extension to the Royal Library. Dishes from DKK 75 for lunch, from DKK 95 for dinner. Book a table in advance, the 'Bib Gourmand' mention in the Michelin guide means the place can be quite busy.
