The oldest park in Denmark, Kongens Have, was laid out when Christian IV commissioned the construction of Rosenborg Castle
in 1634. Some parts of the original Renaissance garden are intact. The Baroque 18th Century saw the construction of several lovely lime tree-lined paths; the 19th Century saw the park re-landscaped according to English ideals. Dozens of stunning sculptures adorn the park, including one of Hans Christian Andersen, who found inspiration for his fairy tales here. The gardens are open until sunset.
