The Beauty of Vestamager

Vestamager



Vestamager aka Kalvebod Fælled is a huge green area on the west part of the Amager island. It lies 0-2 meters below sea level. It used to serve as an artillery training zone. It was dammed and drained during the War World 2.

Nowadays, it is a family friendly place. It can be reached very easily by metro (Vestamager station). There is a small natural centre with a cosy restaurant few meters from the metro station. It is a great starting point for your walking/biking tours. The natural centre offers a wide range of education programs for children. You can also hire a bike there (I will definitely do this next time) or buy some wood to make your very own fire and to roast sausages or fruits.

The area is flat and a bit windy. And you can see many sheep, horses, and birds while exploring it. :)

And if you are interested in architecture, you shouldn't miss the 8tallet. It's an amazing complex of flats!

Anyway, I like the area very much. I hope, I will have time to go there soon again (with a bike and a picnic curve ;-). Have you already been to Vestamager? Or what is your favourite place for picnics in Copenhagen area?
