Bispebjerg Cemetery

In April, this place is packed with people trying to get just the right shot of the beautiful Sakura trees. If you’re really dedicated, you’ll get up before everyone else to have a moment alone in the pink wonderland. While you’re there, make sure to go by Grundtvig’s Church – its gothic architecture is just stunning.

Langelinie Park

Another place to wander around the cherry blossoms is Langelinie Park. You probably know this place as the home of The Little Mermaid, but the park has plenty of other gems to offer, including the beautiful Gefion Fountain.

Vestre Cemetery

Lots of people head to Copenhagen’s cemeteries during spring and summer. Just as you would in a park, people jog, bike and chill out in the flush, green gardens. Vestre Cemetery is one of the largest in Scandinavia and perfect for a good, long stroll.

Copenhagen's canals

The Copenhagen canals are a sight for sore eyes in the spring. Take a walk along the water, jump in a kayak or go all in with a GoBoat, where you can enjoy a floating picnic. The canal in the old neighbourhood Christianshavn is especially charming.

King's Garden

King’s Garden is a real oasis right in the middle of Copenhagen. Located next to Rosenborg Castle, this royal garden is very popular for outings and picnics. There’s also a playground to keep the kids amused while you rest your feet for a minute.

Islands Brygge

As soon as the sun comes out, Islands Brygge comes alive and turns into one of the most popular public spaces in Copenhagen. Join the people sunbathing on the green spots, barbequing and jumping into the harbour bath.

Sønder Boulevard
