The meadows, fields, and pastures of Denmark make for a perfect environment for wildflowers. The landscapes are just irresistible in late spring and early summer when these expanses get blanketed with tulips, lupins, poppies, chives, lavender, red clovers, and greater stitchwort. The flowers form stupendous natural carpets scattered all over the Danish countryside.

When to see flower fields in Denmark?

Crocus field unfolding at Rosenborg Castle between mid-March and early April must be the earliest episode of mass blooming in Denmark. However, the main season for Danish wildflowers is late spring and early summer, namely late April and early July. The season may differ: tulips, in particular, bloom in late April and May, and lupins hit their zenith in June. So double-check the season before hunting your favorite flower variety. Beyond prime time, some wildflowers continue to bloom through the end of summer. One of the wonderful spots to visit late in the season is Selinevej on Amager. There you can see a stunning diversity of wildflowers and also pick as many as you wish.

The wildflowers ornament the countryside, but some of the places are particularly popular. People head to the Arsdale on Bornholm island to witness blooming chives. Poppy fields spread near a provincial town of Næsby and also all over Zealand (Sjælland) Island. The Flakkebjerg area (Sjælland) is especially famous for red clover. And if you're craving lavender fields, a lovely purple-painted swath of land is located next to Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen.

Tulip fields in Denmark

Those who are up for tulips are particularly lucky as Denmark offers a variety of options between late April and late May. The most popular tulip field is tucked on Lolland island near Vesterborg. Another secret location for tulip lovers is Gavnø Castle Garden (Sjælland). Besides, in late April, you can see the Ørsted Park (Ørstedsparken) and Tivoli Gardens cloaked with tulips.

Field of lupins

In June, you should check out a stunning field of lupins (Lupin mark) spanning 5 ac (2 ha) on the beautiful island of Lolland. Lupin comes in 18 different colors and is actually grown for sale. The harvest typically starts on July 1, so hurry up and capture this breathtaking beauty. After harvesting, the seeds are sold to Germany and other countries across the world. Needless to say, picking flowers is forbidden.
