Bakken - or to be formal: Dyrehavsbakken
I started writing aug 23rd 2011. It'll take me a day or two to finnish the tip
Bakken claims to be the oldest amusement park in the world, starting with a legend about a girl and a holy spring in the 16th century.

If you're staying in Copenhagen and you're messed up with noises and the stressful life I would certainly recommend a trip to Dyrehaven - it's possible to rent horses or bikes - or you might just take a walk in the big forest looking at the nature and the deer...
On Wednesdays it's allowed to drive by car in some of the area - there's a parkinglot next to the castle which is called "Eremitagen"...
The big area wad founded by the Danish king Frederik 3rd in 1669 because of the fact that he wanted to go for deerhunting - it's surrounded by a fence which doesn't allow the animals to ru too long :-)
If you go to "Dyrehaven" you should definately see the little castle "Eremitageslottet" - you find it on a hill almost in the mittle of Dyrehaven. From the train station go west to the restaurant "Peter Lieb" make a right turn and walk abouit 2 km. north.
The castle is owned by the Queen and is normally closed for the public, but sometimes she opens it on special occasions.
The castle was build in the years 1734-36. It's a small castle and was mostly used by the king for having party after hunting in the area.Related to:

Peter Lieps Hus: Danish food
Here they both have fish, different kinds of steaks, vegetarian food and desserts served in a typical Danish way. They serve meat that comes from the local deer.
If you dont want to walk to the restaurant you can hire a horse wagon.
Favorite Dish: Tenderloin in paprika gravy with mushrooms, saucisser, tomato and rice - it's delicious.Related to:

Look at the deer herds
When you walk around in "Dyrehaven" you can't miss to see a lot of the deer herds. They are used to people and sometimes you can get very close. It's a good idea to bring your binoculars.Related to:
