“At the main entrance, visitors are officially received by Frederik VI, a former king much beloved by his people, so one is fully aware of entering his garden. In the waters of the beautiful garden he used to be rowed about on the canals saluting the people. The statue's pedestal has the following inscription: 'Here he felt happy in the midst of loyal people'. Today, Svendsen's Boat Service (Svendsens Bådfart) will do the rowing for you. Boat tours operate all summer. The boat tour will give you a good idea of the vastness of the gardens. On the tour you will see the Frederiksberg Palace, towering on a hill top, many lovely little bridges, and the Chinese Pavilion that was erected in 1799 as a Royal teahouse. For centuries, the Frederiksberg Gardens has been a favourite outing spot for Copenhageners. Many bring their picnic baskets for lunch and top off the day by visiting the Copenhagen Zoo in the northernmost end of the gardens. ”

“The Common Park is not only synonymous with May 1st, Carnival and DHL Relay. The park, which is Copenhagen's largest, attracts many different types every day. There will be football and running on the running path, dogs in the new dog yard, play on the new Tower playground, practice traffic in the traffic playground and the sunbathing. The Fælledpark is a very popular and versatile park, which invites both physical activity and relaxation in the sun. The park is also used for major events.”

“Ethical considerations regarding the concept of Zoos aside, Copenhagen Zoo comes across as one of the more conscious institutions, particularly due to their focus on animal welfare and natural stimulation of the animals. This is evident when viewing the large spaces the animals have to roam in and natural behavior exhibited by them, which is why we think it’s worth a visit.”

“This is basically just a park, but one to visit. Underneath the park is the catacombs that used to be used as the water supply for Copenhagen many years ago (you can visit, but its cold downthere). Nowadays Søndermarken is a park with tall grass, lots of buzzing bees and the best science festival in Copenhagen, called Bloom (only three days a year). Its directly opposit Copenhagen Zoo. ”

Dog Run
“Amager Fælled. A piece of untouched nature – sooo close to the city. The nature is wild, haven’t been cultured for 5.000 years and very beautiful and calm. Home for deer and several red-listed species - it’s a true pearl. Go for a walk, take a run, buy some wood from a gas station and go to one of the campfires.”
