A Walk through the Open Spaces of Osterbro, Copenhagen

A Walk through the Open Spaces of Osterbro, Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark (B)

Osterbro lies on the perimeter of the inner city of Copenhagen. It developed around the medieval fortifications of the town as the population grew and spilled over its city walls.

Renowned as a highly desirable residential area with exclusive Danish design stores and trendy restaurants along Osterbrogade, its main street, Osterbro also features some delightful and often historical open spaces. These include Faelledparken the largest park in Copenhagen providing a multitude of outdoor activities. The Copenhagen Lakes are also a popular attraction in this sleepy suburb.

The Copenhagen Lakes also known as the Inner Lakes or simply the lakes are formed by a string of five large reservoirs outside the old ramparts of the old city. The three lakes, Sortedam, Peblinge and St. Jorgen’s stretch for three kilometres from Osterbro to Norrebro, Frederiksberg and Vesterbro. Promenades, wide grassy slopes line and cycling track encircle the three lakes. The first lake, Sortedam Lake, in the centre of Osterbro is popular with inhabitants and visitors alike as a lovely place to walk or while away some time over a coffee or leisurely lunch. Sopromenaden cafe in particular is a great place to try the traditional Danish Smorrebrod or open sandwich. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
