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.
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
