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.

Assistens Cemetery, Copenhagen Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of my favourite places on Nørrebro. Whenever I feel stressed, I go here. It's almost as if you're in the Forrest, with all the large beautiful trees, shielding you from any outside noise from cars and buses. There is a great variety of different trees, which is probably what I appreciate the most. Go here to relax and breathe. Maybe also stop by one the famous writer's tombstone.

  • As much a park as a cemetery. A great atmosphere on a sunny afternoon. Locals hang out here too.

  • Beautiful nature/garden/cemetery to walk. Here you'll also find Søren Kierkergaard's gravestone.

  • I used to come here to sunbathing and relax. It's beautiful in every time of the year. It hosts the graves of famous danish personalities like Andersen, Kierkegaard and Bohr.

  • Here for summer? Why don´t you pack a picnic lunchbox and enjoy life on the beautiful cemetery?
