Why locals love it
Once a part of a fortification that protected Copenhagen from the Swedes, this beautiful inner-city park is now a popular summer hangout for both- the locals and the passer-bys.
Why you should visit it
Get your best blanket, grab a sandwich in 'Pisserenden' and bring a fair-haired Danish boy or girl to the park to catch some of the rare Copenhagen summer sunrays on the steep slopes above the lake. There is also a café to be found on the north end.
