From the beginning a graveyeard for the poor. Famous danish writer H.C. Andersen is buried here. During the years the green areas have become a park for the locals away from the busy city and major streats around.

This is a very small cementery which is easy to reach by public transport from the city centre. The resting places of Kierkegaard and Andersen are well signalised. Bohr's doesnt need much, it it massive.

We walked around the cemetery using the map by the gate. How confusing was that. Took us an age to find Hans Christian Andersen's grave and we never found Neil Bohr's at all. Worth a walk around though, and we saw a red squirrel too.

Assistens Cemetery isn't exactly what I picture when I imagine visiting a cemetery but it was beautiful. It was basically a park that also happened to have tombstones (inlcuding that of the legendary H.C. Andersen). The design of the cemetery is gorgeous and like something...More

We were on an excursion with a guide. He showed us a lot different grave sites. He also read poems from different artists. A very nice evening with H.C. Andersen, H.C. Ørsted, Michael Strunge, Dan Turell and more.

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
