Well, it is a cemetery indeed. But you will see a huge amount of people having a picnic or a sun-bath there. Or just walking around - with babies and dogs, and without - like in a park. Love it.

I didn't find them right away, but eventually locate signs with maps to Hans Christian Andersen and Soren Kierkegaard's graves. Interesting how much activity there was for a cemetery.

We came upon this by chance. It's not a sombre cemetery. There are people relaxing, playing and walking through this. Treated as a park. Some of the tombstones are one of a kind and the gardens around them are attractive.

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