Vestre Kirkegård was created in 1870 as Copenhagen’s main burial ground, and at 54 hectares it’s the largest cemetery in Denmark, and one of the largest in Scandinavia. The cemetery is divided into sections according to country, and the graves of many Danes who have made a significant contribution to society can be found in Section A. Given its size, it’s easiest to get around by bicycle, in order to cover the most ground! If looking at graves isn’t your thing, Vestre Kirkegård is also used as a public park, with people walking, running and cycling when the weather permits. Conveniently located next to the districts of Vesterbro and Carlsberg, it’s a tranquil place to relax on a sunny Sunday morning. Wander down the wide avenues flanked by majestic trees and pause for a break on one of the many sun-facing benches, before heading back into the city for brunch or lunch.

MADmam An absolute zen place for peace-seakers 2 years ago
In general I have a soft spot for cemeteries. They enswathe me with their peacefulness, deliberation and a breath of eternity. Vestre cemetery is a fantastic place for taking a long walk, jogging, learning about the Danish history or just chilling on a bench watching a leaf fall. Kids can have fun feeding the birds at a small pond at the far end of the cemetery or cycle safely along its multiple alleys. Enjoy!!
