Assistens Cemetery embraces the idea of creating an oasis for those who want to come back to visit the famous people buried here and combines outdoor landscaping with spirituality, tranquillity and beauty. To walk the grounds of the cemetery is a pleasure for visitors owing to the well maintained trees, beautiful pathways that wind around the whole area and the tombstones that stand out against the green shrubs.

The park dates back to 1760 and is spread across an area of 25 hectares.

The famous Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, poet Michael Strunge, singer Natasja Saad, physicist Niels Bohr and  philosopher Soren Kierkegaard are laid down here and often you will find locals and tourists stop by to pay their respect to these National icons.

  • The Great area to walk or make a picnic, it's very peaceful and clean. There is Andersen's new gravestone and a lot of things about famous people of Denmark, sorry but I know only Hans Christian Andersen because I am not from Denmark.

  • Walking down the poplar lane in autumn was lovely and we enjoyed a chance encounter with a friendly danish gardener. Our friends told us this is rare, so you may just go for the famous graves. The monuments are not overly impressive

  • An amazing place for a walk. It is a quiet place that one can always retreat to. The cemetery has a feeling of a park and the explorer can find many things to be excited about. The place is children friendly (there were a lot of them when I visited).

  • The most peaceful and quiet "park" in all of Nørrebro. Really nice place for a walk. Lots of small, quiet and cozy places to sit and let your thoughts wander - or enjoy a peaceful conversation. Very well maintained, and being a graveyard... not the least spooky 👻

  • Beautiful cemetery with interesting statues and nice alleys, recommended especially during autumn for the amazing colors.
