Such a peacefu place, not an ordinary cemetary, more like a park. Perfect for sun gazing at some of the benches or listening to birds. There could be more benches though. It's in the middle of Norrebro and easy to find.

Normally I wouldn't visit a cemetery just because, but cemeteries in Copenhagen are different, they have a lot of space to lie down, sunbathe (wearing appropriate clothes), eat & drink. Young people go here for after office pic-nics. It's quiet and very well groomed.

We walked through the cemetery and park to reach to other side of the park. Appreciated how green it was and how beautifully kept and spacious the cemetery was.

Walked through Assistens Cemetary during an extended stay in Copenhagen. The cemetary is well tended and has lovely landscaping.

It's a beautiful Cemetery that people even come to have a relaxing day here during the summer. You also get to see the tombs of famous personalities.

One of Copenhagen's many bicycle “highways” plays an
integral part to this neighbourhood as it snakes its
way through the city. This bicycle path, which allows
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
