“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.”

“Between Valby and Frederiksberg you find Søndermarken – one of Copenhagen’s many parks offering space and beautiful nature. Here you find wild plants, long meadow-like grass and even owls in the old trees. The locals use Søndermarken for jogging, walking the dog or just strolling in the hilly and forest filled landscape. You can also visit the playground with your children or experience the cisterns that used to be water basins supplying clean water to the Copenhageners. ”

“Enter via the entrance on the corner of Stockholmsgade and Sølvgade and walk straight ahead, to the lake, cross the bridge and walk with the lake on your left side, follow the path to the rear end of the lake, there will be some stairs leading up to a big road. At the top of the stairs turn right and walk to the big intersection, cross the road to the park on the opposite side of the road, this is Kastellet. If you are interested in museums and art, you have the opportunity to go to The States Museum of Art (SMK) which is located in Østre anlæg.”

“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.”
