It was bigger than I had expected but a peaceful place to take a stroll. Some famous Danes are buried there, among them HC Andersen. I visited shortly after it was getting dark, this gave it a special atmosphere.

If you are going there in a rainy / coudy weather, just a waste of time. All empty and muddy. Try it in a sunny weather.

It was worth the walk from the centre to the Cemetery . Very interesting and very well kept place. Very peaceful and nice to stroll around looking at the many well kept graves and monuments , including famous Danes such as HC Anderson.

Cool place, if you like cemeteries which I don't particularly. There were people setting off fireworks there which was a bit nerve-wracking.

This cemetery is the resting place of Nobel laureate Niels Bohr, fairy tale author Hans Christian Anderson and existentialist philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. With beautiful poplar trees lined avenue,this cemetery is open to public for walks .The big compound has benches to sit also.

One of Copenhagen's many bicycle “highways” plays an
integral part to this neighbourhood as it snakes its
way through the city. This bicycle path, which allows
you to pass almost unhindered from one end of town to
the other, is bordered by green oases, skater parks,
benches, cafés and all kinds of other recreational
