    Day trip destination around Copenhagen

    Hi all,

    I'm living in Copenhagen for few months now and as the weather is getting better (might be an optimistic excess), I'm looking for nice day trip destination for nature photography. For instance, landscape and wildlife. Any good idea ?

    I haven't lived in Copenhagen long, but a popular destination is the Deer Park (Danish: "Dyrehaven"). A forest just noth of Copenhagen. It is nice there although parts of it can be pretty crowded on weekends and there is a lot (I mean a lot!) of deer roaming around up there.

    You can read a little bit about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyrehaven

    Thanks for the Durehaven suggestion. You're right, it's a very nice place. In fact, I'm living quite close to it and go there pretty often. I now looking for something else. What I would like to find would be the equivalent of a national park, where it's possible to do some day hike like I'm used to in Canada. That could be anywhere within let say 1-3h by train.

    When I lived in Southern Sweden I visited Denmark quite often, but I normally went to Copenhagen, Louisiana or Roskilde so I can’t help you with Danish national parks. But I can recommend a visit to Kullaberg nature reserve on the Swedish side of Öresund:

    I would recommend a trip to Frilandsmuseet in Lyngby (open air museum). for a further trip, try the area around Hillerød-Fredensborg. The king Christian 4 build some nice castles there, and they still try to maintain the parks to a renaissance standard. Also a large forrest with wildlife and exercise-enthusiasts are at hand there.
    Brede near Lyngby has a part of the National museum as well as a collection of crafts in Hjortekær (a gate to Dyrehaven).

    The area of Frihavnen (near Østerbro) provides a lot of harbour activity, now more like sailboats.
    Roskilde has the Viking museum and the Roskilde Domkirke (Cathedral) , where most of the danish kings and queens are buried.
    To the west of Roskilde, which is a relative small town, there is a lot of farmland, but follow the shore to the north, and you find a beautiful nature.
    A bus travels from the station. heading Skt. Jørgensbjerg / Herslev. You find a very good brewery in Herslev, a small former fishing harbour. I think they are open to visitors and taste on fridays.
    I can also recommend the GB-beer you can buy in Roskilde, but I'm not sure if the brewery can be visited.
    I have an photographic memory,
    only - I'm out of film......!

    I think you need to think Sweden:

    If you want to take a one or 2 night stay Söderåsen is nice, some pictures here:

    Stay her right next to the park:

    Another destination is Kullen, perfect for a one day trip:

    The best places, I know of, for landscape and nature photography within a daytrip of Copenhagen is Møns Klint and
    Tystrup-Bavelse Søerne Map (unfortunatly the map only exists in danish )

    Both places are very beautiful and definitly worth a visit, but I think it will be a logistic nightmare to get there with public transportation.

    Regards Tom
