The Botanisk Have and art galleries

The Botanisk Have (Botanical Garden), on the west side of Kongens Have, is dotted with greenhouses and rare plants. The neighbouring Statens Museum for Kunst holds a vast collection of art, from minor Picassos to major works by Matisse and Titian – although it’s the light, spacious architecture of its new wing that steals the show. Across the park on Stockholmsgade, Den Hirschsprungske Samling (The Hirschsprung Collection) holds a collection of twentieth-century Danish art, including work by the Skagen artists, renowned for their use of light.
