Park
“An extremely bizarre yet gorgeous natural park full of deer, with the world's oldest (and strangest) amusement park, Bakken, inside. Bike or take the train to Klampenborg for a long walk through the park, then hit Bellvue beach while you're at it. What a delightfully strange day trip !”

“"Bakken" is a 400 years old amusement park situated in a forest outside Copenhagen (20 min train ride from near by Nordhavn station) and is a super choice families with small / big kids.
