Popular but still very calm and relaxing May 26, 2017
The Royal Library Garden is a quiet and peaceful garden in the middle of the city. It is located between the castle Christianborg housing the Danish parlament and the Black Diamond, which is the new national library. The garden is very well maintained with flowers - especially red tulips and colourful rhododendrons. The latest improvement has been the establishment of an apple tree alley with 30 new trees. It has a reputation for being one of the most tranquil spots in town and I really enjoy coming here on sunny days having a cup of coffee from the Cafe Funder.

The surrounding buildings housing many museums are well maintained and gives a symmetry to the garden. There is a large fountain with an eight-metre-high copper sculpture, which was designed by scultpror Mogens Møller. Neighbouring the fountain there is a quite beautiful sculpture of Soren Kirkegaard made by sculptor Louis Hasselriis.

The garden is well worth a visit even if you dont want to stay for long, but the calm atmosphere often results in a rest on one of the many benches on the pathways.
