“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

This was an interesting pace to visit, especially on a very warm spring day. I think there were more people here than at the botanical gardens! And I don't think they were visiting the graves of family members. The spring flowers and gardens were beautiful and very well kept. The graves of dignitaries are very well posted and labelled of you want to look them up.

“Nice for a wander”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

A nice garden area for a stroll if you are staying in the area, though don't go out of your way to visit here unless it is to visit a famous grave.

We went here on our last day and were glad we did. It is a cemetry, but a very pretty well maitained one! Hans Christian Anderson is also buried here.

“Lovely to Stroll Through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

The cemetery is filled with graves of many famous people including H.C. Andersen, Neils Bohr, etc. Copenhageners use it as a park, and in warm weather you can even sunbathe.

“Serene & Peacefull”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I stayed very close to this cemetery while i was in CPH. It is beautiful in here as others have noted it has a park like feeling. The graves are surrounded by nice bushes. Some big trees cast nice shadows. Plus the area is pretty huge. Graves of many famous personalities in here including that of Neils Bohr. Some of the graves are pretty old around 300-400 years old. There are signs directing you to the graves of famous people.

Once inside it is so peaceful that you forget that you are in Norrebro which is pretty crowded. Many people come here for walks, jogging. On weekends you can see families. I used to go for a jog in the evenings sometimes.

Not a must visit attraction, but if you have some spare time and like parks do visit it. No doubt it is beautiful.
