The University's botanical garden 🌳🌱🌻🥀 in the green heart of Copenhagen is not the worst place to visit on a sunny Sunday like this. 🌞 Just ask this grey heron who is a daily visitor! Photo 📷 by @andestegen 👌
This room under one of the University's oldest buildings is known as ‘Munkekælderen’ (the monks’ cellar ) and dates back to the early 1400s. It was probably never used or visited by monks, but has been used for many purposes, for instance as a popular jazz venue 🎷🎹🎙💃🕺🏼 in the 1950s and up to the 70s. The picture could be from 1953. Do you recognise any of these happy young people - maybe your parents or grandparents? Photo 📷 Helmer Lund Hansen

Panum (1820-1885 ) who, while still a medical student, worked on the cholera epidemics that culminated in 1853. He is also famous for his research into measles. Photo 📷 by @yasminb dali
One hundred years ago, Aksel Olsen, a gardener, asked Danish missionaries to bring seeds back from all over the world 🌎. Olsen sowed the seeds in his backyard 🌱🌱 and some of them he crossed to develop new hybrids. The garden is a unique example of plant development when left to nature 🌺🌳🌻🌴 and the result is many rarely seen species. Scientists from the University of Copenhagen have so far found more than 450 different plants in the Olsen garden from around the world.
