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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Parks & Outdoor areas

    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...

    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...

  • 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,...

  • Churches

    Copenhagen Off The Beaten Path

    Designed by Nicolai Eigtved and completed in 1759, this unique church resembles more a theatre than a church. It was designed in line with the Lutheran principle of the sermon being of greatest importance with a prominent central pulpit. Christians Kirke is renowned for its accoustics and has been the venue of many concerts offering a variety of...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Museums & Exibitions

    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*

  • 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...

  • 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)...

    These are the views of the harbor from a cruise ship as it sails out at dusk. You can see some little aids to navigation, the cranes on the docks, and the fort at the entrance to the harbor. In the US, the ATONs (aids to navigation) are red on the left as you leave the harbor (or Red Right Returning) Under the IALA A standard used in Europe,...

  • 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.
