World War II remains, and nature all around
The airfield is located in the middle of distinct, picturesque Danish nature. Its closest neighbors are Søndersø Lake to the north, the sprawling woodlands of Hareskoven to the east, and the hilly landscapes of Jonstrup and Måløv to the south.
It dates back to 1912, when it was established as a tent camp for young danish army recruits. From 1934 up until 1940, the airfield itself was constructed, and on the 9th of April, 1940, The German Luftwaffe attacked and later occupied it, up until the end of the war in 1945. Remnants and ruins from the German occupation are still lurking in corners of the site.
Today, the southern part of the Airfields hangars and workshops is home to film and television studios and residential areas are popping up on all sides, which underline the appeal of the place and its new era.
