  • One of the nice parks in Copenhagen. Just across the street from the entrance to the Copenhagen Zoo. Young parents with their children and a lot of people trying to stay fit, doing some running around...  more »
  • Walking around Søndermarken is always really nice. It is a perfect place to run. And the best place for a summer picnic. 
  • If you are trying nearby and want to exercise this is the place to go. You get jogging paths and nice sceneries, and even fitness areas with gym equipment.

  • Great Park right between Vesterbro, Valby and Frederiksberg. View to some of the animals from Zoo. Steep hills and old trees. Art exhibition in old underground water resoviors. Good place for running and walking. Snowy hills in the winter for the kids
  • A good place to bake in the sun or go for a run. I really love the majestic trees there. Also has an underground art exhibit inside the park.
  • A very nice and big park, about a fifteen minute walk from Central Station. It's got some foresty parts and also a large grassy area. The zoo takes up a bit of it.
  • Fantastic place to go for a walk. There are plenty of good spots for exercising and doing parkour.
  • Great for runs, but be aware of potholes
