Where to Enjoy the Best of Copenhagen Cherry Blossoms

Last Updated on 6th January 2023 by Sophie Nadeau

While Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark, is not quite as well-known for cherry blossoms as some other destinations in Europe (Bonn and Paris, to name but a couple), there are a few spots in the city that are well worth checking out during the spring time. Here’s where to see the best of Copenhagen cherry blossoms, as well as what to know before you go.

Cherry blossom (known as Sakura in Japanese) tends to bloom from the last week of March until the middle of April. Exact dates on when the blossom will bloom varies year on year dependant on weather factors. As such, it’s hard to predict when peak blossom will be.

If you want to see at least some blossom and have to book in advance, then your safest bet is to book to visit Copenhagen in the first week of April, though there will probably be flowers in blooms for the last two weeks of March and the first two weeks of April.

Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and is characterised by its amazing foodie scene, wonderful canals, and bright colourful houses. The city is also closely tied to fairytales and the Little Mermaid Statue in the city’s harbour pays homage to Hans Christian Anderson.

Where to see cherry blossom in Copenhagen

Kirsebærtræer Bispebjerg (Bispebjerg Cemetery)

Though there are not a great number of places where visitors can see cherry blossom in the Danish capital, those spots where the blossom is visible are truly lovely. Bispebjerg Cemetery is the most famous place to see cherry blossom, and in particular Kirsebærtræer Bispebjerg.

This name is translated into English as cherry blossom alley and is free to visit. The cherry blossom walkway is located on the fringes of the cemetery and is by far the most popular place to see the sakura. If you want to avoid some of the crowds, visit in the early morning and mid-week if possible.

Langelinie Park

A lovely park just a stone’s throw away from the Little Mermaid Statue and the Kastellet, Langelinie Park lies alongside the water and is the perfect place to head to for a stroll. The cherry blossom at Langelinie Park blooms a little later than at Bispebjerg, making it a great place to go to if you’re visiting the city in April.

While you can stroll through the park, you can alternatively enjoy the cherry blossom by embarking on a canal tour like this one. The park is also where the annual sakura festival is held and so is a must-see for all sakura lovers.

University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden

One spot which is a little more off the beaten path when it comes to discovering Copenahgen’s best cherry blossom is the University of Copenhagen Botanical Garden, which is often referred to as Copenhagen Botanical Garden for short.

You should note that there are no alleyways of blossom trees like in some other places in Copenhagen, but the trees and other vegetation of the gardens are beautiful nonetheless. The best blossom is located around the Nørreport entrance.


A small and ornate garden set alongside the Queen’s Palace of Amalienborg, Amaliehaven boasts a small selection of cherry blossom trees. The garden itself was established in 1983 and is located on the site of a former shipyard.

Copenhagen Sakura Festival

Cherry blossoms are so popular in Copenhagen, that there is even a Sakura Festival which is held in Langelinie Park each April, typically during the third weekend of the month. The annual event sees live music, pop-up stalls selling all sorts of goods, and various workshops.
