With this guide to Copenhagen’s best-kept secrets, head off the beaten track and truly experience the heart of the city.

The Royal Library Garden

Tucked away in Christiansborg Palace, the home of the Danish Parliament, you’ll find The Royal Library Garden. This green oasis can be accessed through the gates on Parliament Square.

A quiet coffee

Behind Design Museum Danmark (Kunstindustrimuseet) on Bredgade, lies the fine Grønnegård yard. Here you can take a break from the sights and enjoy a cup of coffee at the Museum Café

Out on the range

The Shooting Range Gardens (Skydebanehaven) in the Vesterbro area of the city are hidden behind vast brick ramparts, originally built to protect passers-by from stray bullets! Once home to Royal Copenhagen Shooting Society, this is now a children’s play park.
