"The Lakes" Top 5 Page for this destination Walking Tip by Sjalen

Walking, Copenhagen: 19 reviews and 26 photos


Favorite thing: The lakes are a set of three ponds, created to improve the water situation and drain a marshy area north of the centre. Today, they mark the boundaries between Vesterbro/Frederiksberg, Norrebro and Osterbro areas of the city, and people from all these parts come here to jog, picnic, look at the swans, walk the dog or visit the restaurant pavilion in this picture (incidentally where famous smorrebrod maker Ida Davidsen had business before moving downtown), or trendy cafes around the Osterbro side.
