Soak up some sunshine in the city’s green spaces
Copenhagen is home to plenty of parks, so do as the locals do and get grilling! Once part of a fortification that protected Copenhagen from the sneaky Swedes, Ørstedsparken is a picturesque inner-city park that’s now a popular hangout for both locals and passersby. Just north of the city you’ll find Dyrehaven, an immense and beautifully wild park that has been attracting city dwellers with its roaming deer and protected forests for centuries. Frederiksberg has another delightful green space featuring dreamy English-style gardens, historical houses, and loads of grassy spots perfect for picnics. It also borders Copenhagen Zoo, so take a wander and see if you can spot the elephants!
