Join the park walks if you need a little peace in the great outdoors and want to know more about the history and attractions of the parks and the museum district.
Admission is free. Just show up under Parkmuseerne’s green banner in front of the National Gallery of Denmark.
Please note that all walks are conducted in Danish. (Great practice for those who are learning the language)
There are three different themes in the program:
