This is a small public gallery showing paintings and some sculpture in a former private house (often the best way to show art collections) and concentrates largely on Danish work of the 18th and 19th centuries.
If you like landscape, interiors and small genre painting, this is a good place to visit. The house is around the back of the main national gallery and across a small park.
Stockholmsgade 20. Metro stop Norreport. Buses 6A, 14, 40 and many others (check bus stop signs). www.hirschsprung.de
A long line of famous Danes are buried here. Among those known abroad are Hans Christian Andersen, Soren Kierkegaard and Niels Bohr.
It's an oasis in the middle of the noisy Nørrebro neighbourhood and has been used as a park for decades.
If you visit in the summer don't be suprised to see half-naked locals lounging on blankets in the sun.
A wonderful graveyard in all seasons.
Located along Nørrebrogade - the long, yellow wall is it. Bus 5A will take you there from the centre or it's a 30 min. walk up Nørrebrogade.
Open 8-16 (winter) and 8-20 (summer).
You’re never pressed for space even in the tourist season. But if off the beaten track is the goal then rent a bike and ride out to Frederiksberg Gardens. It’s ten minutes from the Central Station to these relaxed gardens. The same paths and canal that the upper classes escaped to in the Danish Golden Age. Hans Christian Andersen and his fine friends promenaded here and you, too, can take a slow motion sail along the canal below the castle.
Head west along Vesterbrogade, turn right when the road forks and continue along Frederiksberg Allé. At the end of the road is the Gardens.
Bikes can be rented at the Central Station, next to Track 13.
Prices start at 75 kroner per day.
