If you need some variety during your Copenhagen city holiday, then take a trip to Amager Fælled and Kalvebod Brygge . It can be hard to imagine that a few hundred years ago, Amager Fælled formed a military training ground, firing guns and artillery from the late 1600s. At Amager Fælled there are three hills where you can look out to the capital (please bring a pair of binoculars.
Amager Fælled is just four kilometers from the Town Hall Square, so the noise and stress of the city has been replaced with calm and birdsong. In addition to long walks and bike rides, you can also cook your meals at one of the many campfire sites. With a fishing license you can fish year-round in selected places, including in the lake between ‘By the sluice’ and Vejlands Allé and Storehøj close to Vestamager st. Metro station (Just remember to apply for a fishing license, it is very easy and can be searched on the website of the Danish Nature Agency. ).
At Amager Common you can look out for enclosed and marked areas for horses and the hairy cows of the breed Scottish Highlands and further out in the community roaming deer around surrounded by several bird species.
