We'd read about this and it is a truly delightful cemetery that you feel honours the dead. I'd love to know more about the planning of the gardens and the graves. It is so different to other cemeteries we've seen with each grave or family...More

It is a very peaceful graveyard and park. Many famous people were buried here, including Hans Christian Andersen.

One of Copenhagen's many bicycle “highways” plays an

you to pass almost unhindered from one end of town to
the other, is bordered by green oases, skater parks,
benches, cafés and all kinds of other recreational
facilities. One of the major squares surrounding the
bicycle path is called the Red Square, which offers an
