The unspoilt nature track from Strandparken to Hedeland is connecting the two largest open air areas of the Western Region.
By foot or bike, one can experience magnificent landscapes and wild nature.
Ishøj Church is a typical village church, built c. 1100.
The pulpit, carved pews and the oldest bell date back from the Reformation period in 1620.
A very rare find was made in 1970 during restoration when a floor of glazed, delicately decorated medieval tiles were uncovered with substantial remains of an even older floor.
One of the floor patterns - lilies, hearts and a bird - is today used as logo for Ishøj Parish.
A replica of this tile has been built into the foundation stone for Vejleå church, providing
a link between the past and the present.
The Viking Village in Albertslund, just outside Copenhagen, is a historical place located with a beautiful view of Store Vejleådalen.
In the village, you will find three small houses and a unique farmhouse, Salshuset, which is richly coloured and decorated with hand carved objects and embroidered textiles.
The Viking Village keeps on building new things and in September 2001, it opened its new barn for the Viking keeping of animals
You can walk around in the Viking Village without any appointment but the houses are only open on special occasions.
A highlight of Ishøj's development is Ishøj Beach Park, a recreational paradise just 15 minutes from central Copenhagen.
Ishøj beach park is an artificially created coastal environment. The work to make this park a reality in 1980 was immense, and included land reclamation, moving several million cubic metres of sand, digging lakes, making dunes and planting parks, building a harbour and constructing roads and paths. The result was marvellous with a scenic beach park covering about 5 square kilometres.
The place is visited by thousands of visitors every year who enjoy the man-made paradise and the pure bathing water. The coastline comprises a 7 km long beach running from Brøndby via Vallensbæk and Ishøj to Greve.
Go hunting for the six wooden giants (© Thomas Dambo) lurking in the woods of Copenhagen’s suburbs.
Scattered around lush forests, meadows, and by calm waters in suburbia Copenhagen, you'll meet the tall, quirky-looking wooden sculptures which are pretty far from your typical tourist attraction.
The six municipalities of the greater Copenhagen region which are homes to the impressive art pieces are definitely off the beaten track. And that's exactly why artist, Thomas Dambo opted for these scenic settings locations for his sculptures built from recycled woods; to get locals out discovering and enjoying nature. You are of course invited to do the same.
Perfect for families who want to go beyond the usual touristy sights and attractions to enjoy nature, finding your way to the giants is a fun activity for older kids. Especially if you or your kids like that treasure hunt feel.
A car is needed to get around, and you might want to consider combining your trip with a visit to Arken Museum of Modern Art which is close to the sculpture in coastal Ishøj.
Find the exact locations on the artist's website www.thomasdambo.com.
ARKEN is a great and monumental building situated in the artificial landscape, Køge Bay Beach, a short drive or train ride south of Copenhagen. The museum has one of Scandinavia's finest collections of contemporary art, and its maritime-inspired architecture has won recognition at home and abroad since it opened in 1996.
ARKEN's collection contains more than 400 works from Danish, Nordic and international contemporary artists, primarily from the period after 1990. The museum houses, among other things one of Europe's most important collections of the British artist Damian Hirst, tapestries by Grayson Perry and a masterpiece in sculpture by Ai WeiWei.
The museum also has a permanent exhibition of the work Læsø by Asger Jorn, nine works by the German artist Anselm Reyle, recognised as one of contemporary art's most important innovators of abstract art.
You can expect changing exhibitions in the main exhibition spaces, plus a large permanent gallery showing Hirst's work.
The museum building is an attraction in itself. Designed by architect Søren Robert Lund, it portrays a stranded ship a few metres from the beach. The museum café hangs like a lifeboat on the side of the building and through the large panoramic windows overlooks Køge Bay.
The museum is located in scenic surroundings between Ishøj Harbour and the long sandy beach, so a visit to the museum is not complete without a walk along the dunes and beach.
The museum shop is the area's leading design shop with an inspiring mix of Nordic design, art books and gift items. They include items from Danish brands such as HAY, plus ARKEN designed bags and lithographs.
Let your inner clown out at The Circus Museum, near Copenhagen, where you can join its free circus school every Sunday and explore behind the scenes of the creative and bohemian world of the circus.
The museum is packed with interactive surprises and takes you on a journey through circus life with costumes, photos and plenty to enjoy. Walk in a clown’s footsteps, experience the magic of conjuring tricks or step into the ring yourself.
Every Sunday from 11-12:30, and every day in July, there is a free circus school for anyone who wants to try their hand at acrobatics, juggling, trapeze and more. If you get bitten by the circus bug, you can buy equipment in the museum shop and carry on developing your skills afterwards.
The Circus Museum is located in Avedørelejren, an old barracks in Hvidore, just outside Copenhagen.
The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde offers an incredible insight into the world of the Vikings and their era. You will be amazed by the five original Viking vessels from the 11th-century, as well as "The Glendalough Sea Stallion".
The museum is made up of two main sections – the Viking Ship Hall, where the vessels are kept; and the Boatyard, where archaeological work takes place. In addition, there are guided daily tours during the peak season, weekends and public holidays in May, June and September.
The five Viking vessels originate from a blockade approximately 20 km north of Roskilde. They were built during the 11th-century as an act of defense against enemy naval attacks on the city which at that time was the capital.
At the Boatyard, the boat building tradition and culture of the Viking Age is communicated through working boat builders and exhibitions showing the historical background. The boatyard specializes in reconstructions of prehistoric boats in full scale.
In the Viking Ship Hall, you will be given a unique opportunity of seeing the impressive "Thoroughbred of the Seas" project which took the Glendalough Sea Stallion to Dublin and back in 2007–2008.
In the Jetty, you can get aboard a merchant vessel filled with goods and warship equipment for battle. You can dress up like a Viking and let your imagination take you back to the Viking times.
At Tunet, the Viking meeting place, specialists exhibit Viking handcrafts such as metal work, wood carving or rope making. During summer, you can try coin minting, visit the jewelry workshop or paint your own shield.

Plan your visit here.
Tivoli is a playground for young and old and a spot so full of wonder that it inspired Hans Christian Andersen and Walt Disney. Whether you come for the gardens, music or rides, you’ll have a blast.
Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and has become a national treasure and an international attraction. Fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen visited many times, as did Walt Disney who even found the inspiration for his own Disney World here. When the garden was founded it was placed outside the city’s moats, but today it’s located right next to the Central station and within walking distance of City hall.
Part of Tivoli Gardens' secret is that there is something for everyone. The scenery is beautiful with exotic architecture, historic buildings, and lush gardens. At night, thousands of coloured lights create a fairytale atmosphere that is completely unique. It has quirks and charm, and details for you to discover – you might catch a glimpse of the guinea fowls or peacocks running freely through the gardens.
The rides are all designed to match Tivoli's architecture and gardens. Some rides are wonderfully nostalgic, while others will match the expectations of the keenest thrill seekers. Tivoli’s oldest and most popular ride, the wooden Rollercoaster from 1914, is one of only seven rollercoasters worldwide which have a brakeman on board every train. In contrast, you’ll also find Vertigo, which will turn you upside down at 100 km/h. It was voted Europe’s Best Ride in 2014.
The newest ride of all is Villa Vendetta, Denmark's largest permanent haunted house complete with actors, where guests embark on a journey through 12 different rooms spread over 800 spooky square meters.
TRAVEL TIP: With a Copenhagen Card in your hand you get free admission to Tivoli and over 80 attractions as well as free public transportation in the whole capital region.
When it comes to food, Tivoli is equally diverse. Lots of people will bring picnics to the garden, but you can also choose from Tivoli's broad selection of restaurants. You'll find everything from traditional Danish cuisine to French bistro to gourmet burgers. Tivoli has a seafood bistro, Figaro as well as the world-renowned burger chain, Gasoline Grill, and one of the city's very best vegetarian restaurants, Gemyse.
If you’re up for a more relaxed, food-stand kind of food, Tivoli has got that as well. On the corner of Tivoli, towards the Central Station, you’ll find Tivoli Food Hall. The architects behind the building also created the stunning glass pyramid of the Louvre in Paris. Inside you’ll find a variety of different cuisines, from healthy Islandic dishes at Glò to delicious, hot flatbread at North-African Wakha, and everything in between.
You could also try the classy Nimb and Nimb Hotel, which are situated in Tivoli Gardens. They have a variety of different restaurants – for example in the restaurant Fru Nimb, you can get traditional Danish smørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches). There is also the outstanding patisserie Cakenhagen to enjoy for its coffee, cakes and champagne.
