Herkules Pavillonen

Combine your walk in King's Garden with a visit to Herkules Pavillonen - a cozy summer café in green and historic surroundings and with a direct view of Rosenborg Castle.

In wonderful King's Garden, at the end of the main avenue Kavalergangen, lies the beautiful old building Herkules Pavillonen. It was originally built as a private gazebo for Christian IV in 1606, a supplement to the king's "summer palace". Today, the building houses a cozy café with outdoor seating, perfect for warm summer days and a direct view of Rosenborg Castle.

Although the Herkules Pavilion and its surroundings exude history, grandeur and idyll, everyone is welcome in the café - whether you are from the business world, a tourist or just a hungry and curious person passing by. The owners want the place to be unpretentious and welcoming. In this way, a piece of exclusive culture in the heart of Copenhagen is managed in the best possible way.

The café offers homemade and high-quality breakfasts and light lunch dishes with a focus on fresh and local ingredients. In addition, baked goods and cakes are a core competence, and the café also collaborates with Kastbjerg's Gourmet Icecream. So if you have a sweet tooth or are just looking for a good cup of coffee or something else to drink in green surroundings, you won't have missed out if your trip to the popular garden ends with a visit to Herkules Pavillonen.

The café is a summer café and therefore only operates with outdoor seating without table reservations. Grab a seat at one of the many locations, either on the avenue or in the more secluded courtyard. If you're on the go, they also serve homemade sandwiches from their "vending window". Whatever your errand, the place has so much history that it's an experience in itself to enjoy the royal comforts in a relaxed way.
