Here you can read about the experiences awaiting you in the Dragør part of Nature Park Amager

The Nature Park between the Two Towers – From the Tower of Copenhagen City Hall to the Pilot Tower of Dragør

Just south of Dragør Harbor Nature Park Amager opens up with protected beach meadows.

From this point you have great opportunities for biking and hiking close to the coast, all the way to Copenhagen. The park covers a large area of protected land and offers spectacular nature with an outstanding coastline. Here you can spend the night under the stars in shelters and in tents on campsites. Camp fire sites are available. For camping, booking in advance is necessary at www.udinaturen.dk

 

Walk The Amarmino – the hiking trail through Nature Park Amager

Amarminoen is a 24 km long scenic hiking trail. You can start from Dragør in the south and walk to DR Byen in the north. Here you can take the metro to Copenhagen City. Or go the other way round! Walking part of the trail is also possible. Just follow the green pictograms.

Kongelunden Fortress

On the southern tip of Amager stands Kongelunden Fortress offering a breathtaking view of Køge Bay and the skyline of Ørestaden – and of Dragør. The fortress was built during World War I to prevent enemy ships from attacking Copenhagen. Today the fortress is a center for outdoor activities. Read more at www.kongelundsfortet.dk

Kongelunden - the King’s Wood

The wood is famous for its rich wildlife. Pheasants were raised here until 1929 – and they are still here. You are free to walk the dog, to bike and ride on horseback in Kongelunden.

There are picnic sites in several places.

 

Øresund on the Nature Canon

The sound of Øresund is designated as one of the most precious natural areas of Denmark. You can bathe almost everywhere on Dragør’s 13 km long coastline, and all kinds of maritime activities such as sailing, angling, diving and kite surfing take place along Øresund.

'Sydvestpynten'

Magnificent views and unique bird life

The south-west point lies south of the forest 'Kongelunden', at the end of Kalvebodvej, and contains, among other things, the bird sanctuary Kofoed's meadows. From Kongelunden Fortress at the southwest corner, you have a fantastic view of both Kofoed's meadows and 'Aflandshage' - Amager's southernmost point - to which there is no access, as it is a military area. You can also get quite close to the birds in the Bird Tower by the Pheasant Path, which is east of the Aflandshage.

'Kongelunden' - Kings Forest

The forest can be experienced on foot, on horseback and by bicycle

The Kings Forest Kongelunden, which today is approximately 2 square kilometers in size, was planted at the beginning of the 19th century when firewood was in short supply. It consists mostly of oak trees, which gives way to a lush undergrowth of different types of shrubs and good protection of wildlife.
