The library garden is a small green spot, well hidden away in the busy capital. This little green oasis is located on Slotsholmen, between Christiansborg Palace and the Royal Library, with Christian IV's old Stock Exchange building in the background.
Today, the garden is filled with beds and beautiful flowers and surrounded by tall shrubs and shady trees. In the middle is a low pool with a water sculpture in the middle.
The garden was built in 1920 on top of Christian IV's former war port, Tøjhushavnen. At the end of the garden, old mooring rings are still built into the walls for the 17th and 18th century ships that were berthed there.
There is also a sculpture of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, looking sadly into the horizon. It is said that it was here that he had to propose to Regine Olsen, with whom he was very much in love.
