Danish architect Arne Jacobsen's old petrol station from 1938 is still operating, and the sea view you get when filling up your car is just as good as back then.
The petrol station was nicknamed Paddehatten, the Mushroom, because of its ellipse-shaped canopy roof.
The reinforced concrete building was faced with white Meissner tiles - signalling purity and cleanliness.
A functionalist masterpiece
By this simple means Arne Jacobsen managed to build an impressive structure - one that was later to be considered among his finest functionalist masterpieces.
The petrol station was designed, under contract to Texaco, as a new standard model. But the model was never put into production. It is now a class A historic monument.
To this day, the petrol station remains the only one of its kind, fully intact and virtually unaltered since its erection in 1938. Only the petrol pumps are recent additions.
Just 10 minutes north of Copenhagen, you’ll find the oldest amusement park in the world in the woodlands beside deer park Dyrehaven. It offers a nostalgic and fun-filled day out, with rides and games.
The park offers a perfect blend of children’s amusements, with rollercoasters and games for the whole family. In total, the park has 32 rides for all ages and levels of thrill-seekers as well as 78 other attractions such as shooting stalls and gaming arcades. While the park dates back to 1583, the oldest ride you can experience today is an 82-year-old wooden rollercoaster.
You will also find a wide variety of restaurants, ice cream parlors, fast-food shops and pubs, and bars with entertainment and live music.
Many Danish families have been coming back to Bakken for generations. Bakken’s longest-standing visitor is, however, Pierrot. The well-known white-faced clown, who visits Bakken every day, has been a hit with the amusement park’s youngest guests for more than 200 years.
Bakken also runs special seasonal experiences for Harvest Week and Christmas. During Harvest Week, there will be a lot of entertainment on stage, a hay bale maze, face painting, a scary Halloween area, Bakkens Food Tour, Pentathlon, games and rides, fall-inspired food, and much more.
For Christmas, the old amusement park is decorated with trees, snow, and Christmas lights. Here you will find Denmark’s largest mistletoe, meet Santa, a Christmas Market, Pentathlon, Christmas dinners, Bakkens beer experience, live music, and much more.
And remember: at Bakken, the entrance is always free.
Ordrupgaard opened in 1918 and consists of several different buildings that have gradually been added to the premises, which today include the main building, the Lavender House, Finn Juhl's house, and the modern extension by Zaha Hadid and Snøhetta. The museum also has a lovely park with art installations and sculptures by various contemporary artists, created specifically for Ordupgaard.
The museum's collection includes works by several renowned artists, including a remarkable collection of French works from Romanticism, early Realism, to Impressionism. In Finn Juhl's house, you can get an insight into the works, interior design, and life of the famous Danish furniture architect, which is an art experience that truly connects architecture, design, and art into one unity. Finn Juhl's house is not the only architectural masterpiece at Ordrupgaard. The modern extension by star architect Zaha Hadid is a masterpiece worth a visit itself.
If you need a break or get hungry along the way, we recommend Ordrupsgaard's own tea house, Ved Chaya, which not only serves an exquisite cup of tea but also delicious food prepared with local Nordic ingredients.
Want to enjoy a peaceful walk in beautiful surroundings and fill your lungs with the fresh, Nordic air? Then Dyrehaven in North Zealand is just the right place for you. Dyrehaven, which literally means "the deer park", is a natural resort filled with lush forests, small lakes, and wide, open landscapes. As the name might reveal, Dyrehaven is renowned for the more than 2000 free-range deer that inhabit the park, and you'll surely come across a herd of grazing deer on your way through.
All year, the park is well-visited by people that turn to its green hills for picnics, jogging, biking, and horseback riding. You can even take a tour of the lands in a majestic horse carriage if you want.
Besides the beautiful landscape, Dyrehaven also has a significant history that dates back hundreds of years. In 2015, Dyrehaven was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as part of the par force landscape that was once used for hunting by the Danish royalty.
The park was actually made for hunting with hounds, which is why the roads are linked in star-shaped trail systems that made it easier for the hunters to keep track of the dogs. While you're strolling around the park, make sure to pass by The Hermitage, the King's stunning hunting lodge in the heart of the park.
If a break from the city life sounds good to you, Dyrehaven is only a 20-minute train ride from the center of Copenhagen. Just hop on a train to Klampenborg Station, you can catch one from any train station in the center.
Hellerup is situated just north of Copenhagen, where Østerbrogade turns into the famous costal road Strandvejen, which means beach road.
In Hellerup the houses are as big and beautiful as the cars parked out front. This is where you will find the rich and glamorous Copenhageners and perhaps a lucky student or two who inherited their grandparents' flat.
The seaside suburb has a wonderful charm to it with luxury deli's, boutiques selling fine shoes and fashionable clothing and the newest trends in furniture design, arts and crafts.
Hellerup has also got a harbour and a kid-friendly beach - Hellerup Beach - with plenty of sand, few stones, shallow water, and a big playground with swings.
Built on a history of bottles and cans
Founded in 1991 as a non-profit foundation, Experimentarium is housed in the former soft drinks bottling facility of the world-famous Danish brewery Tuborg. Its 28-tonne aluminium facade is appropriately made partly of recycled beer and aluminium cans. Since it first opened, millions have since passed through its revolving doors to lose themselves in fascinating surprises on every floor.
Educate and illuminate
Experimentarium has always had a clear mission: to educate on scientific and technological methods and research past and present - and that the best way to illuminate and captivate is through play. That’s why everything is designed to be touched or interacted with. Here you can encase yourself in a giant soap bubble, ride a rodeo armchair or experience what it’s like to be a baby in the womb!
Spread out across four floors, each is divided into various themes such as the human body, a ‘Miniverse’ for toddlers and the world’s first fully interactive cinema with motion sensors. As you climb its magnificent copper spiralling staircase, designed to resemble the twisting double helix structure of DNA, you ultimately discover magnificent panoramic views from its rooftop terrace.
Science for all the senses
All activities and exhibits are in both Danish and English, with clear, accessible instructions. Here nothing is dull or dry - in fact, some exhibits might literally leave you a little bit wet. Experimentarium also holds regular workshops, guest exhibitions, and practical demonstrations. But the one rule of this superb science centre is to dive in and experience everything for yourself.
Experimentarium is easy to get to and is only 6 km from Copenhagen City Centre. Cycles lanes take you north through Østerbro, right to its revolving entrance doors. If you are coming from the city, we recommend you take the picturesque waterfront route to Tuborgvej.
You can also take the S-Train to Svanemollen station then either walk for fifteen minutes or hop on the 1A bus north and stop at Tuborg Boulevard (Strandvejen). By Metro, it’s the M3 to Poul Henningsens Plads Station, then take the bus 1A.
Visit the brewery harbour north of Copenhagen.
Turborg harbour is located in Hellerup north of Copenhagen. The harbor used to serve the Danish Tuborg Breweries, and this collaboration has given name to the harbor.
The harbour’s history is beer brewing is still seen today, as two large beer bottles flank the sides of the harbor. Take a stroll along the harbourside to see the landmark for yourself.
Ryvangen Memorial Park (Mindelunden) in Hellerup on the outskirts of Copenhagen is a beautiful park commemorating the Danish freedom fighters who were executed here or elsewhere, or died in German concentration camps, during World War II.
The Memorial Park is located on the former military training grounds used by Svanemøllen Barracks. During World War II - on 29 August 1943 - the grounds were taken over by the Germans and used as accommodation for troops, and execution of the Danish Resistance.
After the war the bodies of 197 freedom fighters were discovered in this area, and it was only then the Danish public truly realised what terrible events had taken place on the site.
In Ryvangen Memorial Park you can stroll around between the three memorials and the original execution sites.
The Great Grave Field
Danish sculptor Axel Poulsen's large sculpture of the mother of the slain son stands in the middle of the Great Grave Field. 106 people of the resistance are buried here.
Other resistance people's names are engraved on the plaque in front of the monument. At the foot of the statue is an inscription by Dane Kaj Munk.
Memorial Wall and KZ Graves
The Memorial Wall to the left of the main entrance consists of plaques with the names of 151 people from the Danish Resistance, whose mortal remains have never been found.
The concentration camp graves to the right of the main entrance is a rotunda with the graves of 31 dead Danes in German labour or concentration camps. In the middle is a memorial monument by Axel Poulsen.
Inside the Memorial Park you will find the original shooting range used by the Germans to execute Danish freedom fighters. They were picked up from Vestre Prison in Copenhagen in the early morning and driven to Ryvangen. Here they were tied to a pole and shot.
The original three wooden poles have been replaced by bronze ones, but you can see the original ones at the Museum of Danish Resistance in Copenhagen.
Pistol Shooting Range
The Pistol Shooting Range, where the first executions took place, is located just outside the Memorial Park. The area is adjacent to some residencial buildings and allotments known as Ryparken.
From here the residents during the occupation could watch German soldiers arriving in large trucks with Danish civilians. Subsequently they would hear the sound of gunshots being fired. In front of the Pistol Shooting Range is a memorial.
The Anniversary of the Liberation of Denmark, 4 May, is celebrated every year with a ceremony and flowers on the graves. If you happen to be in Copenhagen that day, a visit is recommendable.
Please note that the Memorial Park is a state cemetery, and the seriousness of the site should be respected. Playing, dog walking, jogging, sunbathing and noisy behavior is thus not permitted.
Guided summer tours in English
All Wednesdays in the summer months (June, July and August), you can take part in a guided tour in English around Ryvangen Memorial Park. The tour is free, it begins at 15 and it lasts around an hour.
Nordhavnen is placed between Hellerup and Langelinie right by the Øresund coast and Denmark's largest marina.
The entire Nordhavn area is 200 ha and operates as port and industrial area, which includes Copenhagen's container terminal and cruise docks. In addition, there is quite a lot of warehouse and logistics activity. You will find it close to the neighbourhood Østerbro. From being an industrial port area, the area is developing into a new, attractive urban area with exciting new buildings with homes, shops, jobs and schools. It all makes the area an independent district with its own life and a very special touch - right down to the quayside.
Right beside the Nordhavn area is Denmark's biggest marina, Svanemøllehavnen, with over a thousand moorings. You can also find the workout Konditaget Lüders, The Portland Towers and the UN building here. With direct access to the Øresund on one side and Østerbro on the other, Nordhavn has a unique location right at the entrance to Copenhagen harbour. The area's old industry is envisioned in the new architecture, so new meets old - and the harbour meets the city.
Fun fact: In the tv series "Broen" (the Bridge) the homeless Bjørn is hidden at Nordhavnen, where he's trying to communicate by using morse code.
The main street in Østerbro is Østerbrogade which will also leads you to Trianglen, the traffic hub of the neighbourhood.
This street has all the fancy designer stores, hip cafes and restaurants. If you are not satisfied after a stroll on this street, visit some of the lively side roads, like Nordre Frihavnsgade or Ryesgade. Close to Trianglen you’ll also find the lakes with plenty of cafes or the charming little street Olufsvej, where you can buy delicious ice cream.
Unveiled on 23 August 1913, The Little Mermaid was a gift from Danish brewer Carl Jacobsen to the City of Copenhagen. The sculpture is made of bronze and granite and sits in the water at Langelinie Pier.
It was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytale about a mermaid who gives up everything to be united with a young, handsome prince on land.
Every morning and evening she swims to the surface from the bottom of the sea and, perched on her rock in the water, she stares longingly towards the shore hoping to catch a glimpse of her beloved prince.
Fell in love
Carl Jacobsen fell in love with the character after watching a ballet performance based on the fairy tale at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen.
The brewer was so captivated by both the fairy tale and the ballet that he commissioned the sculptor Edvard Eriksen to create a sculpture of the mermaid.
Inspired by a ballerina
The sculpture was inspired by ballerina Ellen Price, who in 1909 danced the lead role in the ballet The Little Mermaid at the Royal Theatre.
However, Ellen Price would not model in the nude for sculptor Edvard Eriksen. Thus Eriksen’s wife, Eline Eriksen, posed for the sculpture of The Little Mermaid.
The headless mermaid
The little mermaid has several times been the victim of vandalism. Twice she has lost her head, once the arm was sawn off, and several times she has had paint poured on her. Thankfully, she is always rescued and restored, so she can stay in her place by the water and bid travellers welcome to Copenhagen harbor.
“A hidden gem"
Karen Blixen (also known as Isak Dinesen and Tania Blixen) is one of Denmark’s most celebrated authors. She manifested herself as part of the literary elite, with her debut as an author at the age of 49. Karen Blixen published seven books and won instant recognition with her first books Seven Gothic Tales and Out of Africa. Out of Africa and the novel Babettes Feast have both been adapted into Academy Award-winning films.
Karen Blixen Museum, Rungstedlund
Rungstedlund, the charming and historic home of the Dinesen family where Karen Blixen was born in 1885 and died in 1962. Today a museum and an authentic author home.
The museum invites guests to visit Karen Blixen’s original rooms, which, with their special atmosphere and decorative furnishings, sparks the imagination. The creativity of Karen Blixen is present throughout the museum - in the fresh flower decorations, her paintings and the interior design. A visit at Rungstedlund forms a deeper understanding of Karen Blixen’s life, philosophy and works.
Nature and Bird Sanctuary
Even Karen Blixen’s great passion for nature and biodiversity is very much present at Rungstedlund, with free access the park is always open for guests to experience and enjoy.
The 15-hectare Bird Sanctuary was established in 1958 by Karen Blixen and the beautiful grounds, attracts researchers and nature lovers from far and wide. Numerous nesting boxes and the rich biodiversity has ensured Rungstedlund as a favored breeding ground for many birds. At the foot of a prehistoric burial mound and beneath a more than 300-year-old imposing beech tree lies the grave of Karen Blixen.
Literature and culture
In addition to the museum’s permanent collections, Rungstedlund presents a rich program of events and is a meeting place for those interested in culture and literature. All year round, writers, artists, researchers, and politicians are invited to talks and lectures related to essential topics - often related to Karen Blixen’s legacy.
Café and shop
Spoil yourself in the cozy café “Madam Carlsen” named after Karen Blixen’s faithful housekeeper, Caroline Carlsen. Enjoy fresh, local and tasty homemade food all day as well as a selection of wine, coffee, tea and cake.
The Museum shop offers a variety of books, art and unique handcrafts.
The Karen Blixen Museum is easy to access by train to Rungsted Kyst Station and invites you to take the short walk from the station to the museum via the Bird Sanctuary. There is free parking for visitors by car. Estimate approximately half an hour by train or car. Cycling is of course also an option along the beautiful coastal road “Strandvejen” and you can bring the cycle on the train going back”
