Touristy Pictures of København K (1)

Crocuses blooming in Kongens Have—View northwest towards Rosenborg Slot (29 March 2009)

It was reasonably sunny yesterday, so it was a good day to play the domestic tourist at one of København's most popular (and often photographed) destinations, Kongens Have (The King's Garden) and Rosenborg Slot (Rosenborg Castle), located in the central København. In the picturesque garden, also known as Rosenborg Have (Rosenborg Castle Garden), an expansive swath of violet and white Dutch crocuses (Crocus vernus vernus and Crocus vernus albiflorus, respectively) was in bloom. The castle, off in the distance here, is no longer a royal residence, but a historic artifact housing a museum of Danish (royal) culture. On a weekend day like this, even one with intermittent clouds, rest assured most Danes would rather be outside in the Have taking in fresh air and sunlight, not coooped up in the Slot looking at paintings and crown jewels. A good day to explore the Slot—from the outside.
