Assistens Cemetery - Review
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.
For those who love nature, the place is ideal for a long afternoon stroll or simply to find your own quiet corner and see the world pass by. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Copenhagen itinerary 2 days.

Assistens Cemetery, Copenhagen Reviews
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 👻
A quiet and large cemetery/park. Space to relax and hangout, without feeling the weight of the buried. But people are nice and easygoing. It's not a place to really hang out and have a great time, but it's okay to hang out and relax. Even together.
It was on our son's initiative that we ended up wandering around the narrow lanes of the Assistens Cemetery. He was keen to see the final resting place of... no, not Hans Christian Andersen... as he's a physics buff, he wanted to see Niels Bohr's grave. That we found, and then we added - in the course of a very peaceful and pleasant walk - also Søren Kierkegaard and, of course, Hans Christian Andersen. The cemetery is idyllic, although there was quite a bit of restructuring underway in its north-eastern corner. Also, since our visit took place at the beginning of spring, the gardening work had probably not had enough time to show all its splendour yet.
Beautiful cemetery filled with little gardens, and a pocket of haven just off the main busy road. This place is completely worth a visit to walk around, and even relax, read and sunbathe.
Beautiful cemetery that looks more like a gorgeously manicured garden with small paths lined with flowers. I almost wanted to picnic on the well groomed grass.
