Københavns Kommune Off The Beaten Path

  • Dragør

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Dragør is only 12km from the centre of Copenhagen, but its location on the south-east coast of Amager, south of the airport, means that it hasn't been incorporated into the city and has retained its character, that of a small seafaring town and fishing port. It's a very pretty old town with many well-preserved historical buildings, and plays host...

    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...

  • Roskilde

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    About 25kms outside of Copenhagen and easily accessible by train from the Central Station; Roskilde makes a great day trip. It has a lovely town and main street with square, lots of shops, cafes and bars plus parks and church, but perhaps its main attraction is the Viking Museum. This museum contains five reconstructed viking ships, excavated...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Christiania is an alternative district of Copenhagen, which arose after hippies, homeless, alternatives and autonomists military barracks occupied and the "free state Christiania 'proclaimed. Since then it has become a neighborhood where alternative people feel at home, and which the inhabitants an example of the Danish progressiveness and...

  • 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...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Cisternerne is a quite spectacular art museum, located in the old water reservoirs below Søndermarken on Frederiksberg (see other tip). It was first used in 1996 - in connection with Copenhagen’s status as European City of Culture - as an exhibition space, and from 2001 to 2013, Cisternerne was a Museum of Modern Glass Art. Today, it is part of...

  • 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

    I don't know if there is something alike in all the world. For me, it was the first (and last) time that I crossed a strange men's work that starts being a bridge and, suddenly dives into the sea to become a tunnel. Expensive toll, of course, but a clever solution and a different experience, putting Sweden only minutes away, without restrictions...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • Churches

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    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). The foundation stone was laid on September 8, 1921 and the church was completed in 1940. The...

  • 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...

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...

  • 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)...

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    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.
