7 places to leave for when in Copenhagen

Experience the beautiful surroundings of our region’s most beautiful capital.

Words Nick Rice


Charming old town with a beach and cafés 12km from the city centre. Hire a bicycle and bike through the Amager Common or jump on the 350S bus and enjoy a day trip to Dragør. Expect alluring cobbled streets and cute and colourful thatched houses and an olde-worlde atmosphere with a lovely view of the harbour. – 2791 Dragør



An escape from the city in the city itself. Locals refer to it as the ”Library Garden” and it’s a peaceful haven from the surrounding pace of modern life. Find it tucked away between the Tøjhus Museum and Christiansborg Palace on Slotsholmen. Once happily inside join the statue of philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and quietly gaze out at the world. – Proviantpassagen 1



UNESCO protected forest with large populations of red and fallow deer.The towering oak trees stand sentinel above 2,100 deer rambling around this ancient forest. A number of public tours take place in and around the deer park, including rutting tours in the autumn and feeding tours in the winter. – Nørskovgårdvej 24



A day trip for organic food and beer fans. This massive country farm grows a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables. The farm shop has a broad selection of bread, dairy products and groceries. Everything is sourced from quality conscious organic producers and the farm also boasts its own brewery, Kølster Malt & Beer. – Krogerupvej 3B,



The second-largest park in Copenhagen — a vast nature playground. A new disc golf park joins the 17 circular themed gardens that remain from when Copenhagen was the 1996 European City of Culture. We like Hans Christian Andersen’s Oriental Garden. Tromp up hills, over bridges, up climbing walls, across football pitches and enjoy cycle paths and beach volleyball. – Hammelstrupvej 41
