Københavns Kommune Off The Beaten Path

  • Dragør

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    While visiting Copenhagen take the time to visit Dragør,, the small fishing village ten or fifteen minutes east of Kobenhavn. This village is fairytale charming and rich in Danish history and a day trip here could easily be on your list of things to do. Near the harbor of Dragør, is a shopping area with walking streets--no cars allowed. Some of...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    The park, complete with trees and statues, near The Little Mermaid, is a great place for a picnic by the water. I wasn't actually able to have a picnic here but my imagination created the thought. The day I visited this park and saw the Little Mermaid, the sun shined, it rained, it hailed, it snowed and the sun came out again. (All in a matter of...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Years ago when WWII soldiers abandoned there "houses" near the river some hippies went to live there. And other hippies came and it is now a big hippy comuna just in the city. I have never seen something similar ... Take care and do not take pictures (hippies do not like). You can walk, take a cup of coffe, even visit the skate room ... Police go...

  • Roskilde

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    We took the train from the airport to Roskilde, which was about a 30 minute ride. The train station in Roskilde is right by the center of town. And apparently it is one of the oldest continuing operating stations in Denmark. We had an easy walk down the pedestrian street to the cathedral, which was beautiful. We also stopped along the way for a...

  • Sweden

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Across the sea from Copenhagen, in another country, lies one of the major cities in Europe. This was a city that once was visitable only by ferry, but since the great wonder of the Oresund bridge was built, it is now accessible by a train. It's so easy and close that many people live in Malmo and work in Copenhagen. Malmo is Sweden's third biggest...

  • Beaches

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    My friend lives in Charlottenlund which is fife minutes from the seahore and beach there. In winter it is nice to take a stroll while in summer it must be nice to take a bath in the sea watching the big ships passing at the horizon.... Some are also bathing in winter..the so called "Vikings" run a bath in Charlottenlund.

  • Helsingør

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Hamlet's Castle is about thirty miles north of Kobenhavn in Helsingor (pronounced as Elsinore.) It is worth the trip to see : Kronborg Slot (Kronborg Castle ) on which Shakespeare based Hamlet's castle and a popular place to perform his play. The real Kronborg Castle was evolved from a fortress, built in the 1420s and strategically placed to serve...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Here, twenty miles north of Kobenhavn along the North Zealand coast, is Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, a world-class art colony sculpture garden and museum. It's really lovely and not to be missed if possible. This differs from the Museum of Skagens in that the art here is mainly post 1945. Think Picasso, Andy Warhol and Henry*

  • Inner Suburbs

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Countless tourists walk up and down Stroeget to shop and sure, if you've never experienced Scandinavia before, it can be fun with Illums Bolighus and all the rest, but the crowds depress me. If you are looking for a bit more "special" shopping and are interested in clothes, it might be worth heading for Gammel Kongevej which is the road leading...

  • Dyrehaven

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    A little way outside the city to the north is a suburb called Klampenborg, which can be reached S-train, or by a very pleasant 10-15km cycle up the coast. It is best known for being the main entrance to Dyrehaven (The Deer Garden) forest park, one of the most popular recreation areas for Copenhagen city dwellers. Jægersborg Dyrehave is noted for,...

    Grundtvigs Kirke (Grundtvig’s Church) is located on the Bispebjerg Hill in the north-western part of Copenhagen. The church was built as a national monument for the priest, hymn writer and social reformer Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872).

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    This is the entrance to the old library building. It is still there, or so I am told, but they've added a new building to it since our last visit (1995) that I haven't seen yet. Seems to be a very interesting building though, judging by the pictures that I've stumbled upon! At a certain point in the past, I also subscribed to the Royal Library...

  • Nyboder

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Nyboder was erected between 1631 and 1641, during the reign of King Christian IV, as quarters for the permanent personnel of the Navy. These terrace houses have been rebuilt many times, but some of the original buildings still stand with part of this now serving as a museum. The Nyboder houses are unique in that they are all painted yellow. It...

  • Russian Orthodox Church

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    We've examined Russian Orthodox church only from windows of our car. However we remembered its shape very well. In two weeks after returning home to Moscow we saw a television plot which saw many televiewers all over the world. Ashes of the Russian empress Maria Fedorovna (she was the Danish princess before she got married tsar Alexander III)...

    Just a little train ride away from the city you find Dyrehavsbakken or just Bakken (The hill) as its normally called in Danish is situated in the southern part of the large forest Dyrehaven. Its the oldest amusement park in the world dated back to 1583 (pls tell me if you know one older). It has a felling like a large version of this travelling...

    Frederiksborg Castle is located in the middle of Hillerod and contains the national history museum. Lovely 1 day trip from Copenhagen. The history of Frederiksborg Castle starts ine the 16th century when King Frederik II converted this manor into a hunting state and helped the village of Hillerod to grow.

  • Rundetårn

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    On the other hand, the city seen from the top of the Round Tower looked so mellow in the pastel colours of a late afternoon. The lines of the city architecture became softer and the forged iron of the fences and the cobbled streets so dynamic as if the city was slowly waking up.
