A slice of nature in the heart of Copenhagen
The romantic Østre Anlæg park is laid out with winding paths and hilly terrain on what was formerly the ramparts of Copenhagen.
In the Østre Anlæg park, you can clearly see the outline of the old fortifications thanks to well-preserved lakes and bastions. Designed in the natural landscape-like style, the park boasts many wild herbs, perennials and grasses as well as rich wildlife, especially in the lakes.
Amidst the greenery of the park’s nooks and crannies, sculptures and monuments act as hidden surprises.
The Østre Anlæg park is home to two playgrounds and one of the city’s popular toboggan runs. And this is also where you will find the Hirschsprung Collection and SMK – the National Gallery of Denmark, with plenty of world-class art on display.
