The cemeteries in Denmark embrace life just a much as they embrace the dead. The Assistants Cemetery is the resting place of H.C. Andersen- the famous author who wrote classics like The Little Mermaid, The Snow Queen and The Ugly Duckling. The place has its own app to make navigation and getting information easier for tourists. The oldest part of the cemetery (that stretches around Norrebrogade), dates back to the early 19th century and with so much history that seeps into its air, a walk here is almost surreal especially for nature lovers who can explore the botanical variety of the place. The hanging trees, Cherry trees, Turkish hazelnut, duet tree, hanger skins, coffee trees, and Snake Balm Salmon plants along with other trees, keep tree lovers busy while a tranquil shaded corner is perfect for book lovers to unwind with a book.
The pathways that form a network around the cemetery are lined with tall trees and benches where you can have a seat and watch the world pass by. The place is one of the few places around the city that pulls crowd for its impeccable landscaping and for its soulful ambience.

A very beautiful setting for some might say the most famous Dane ever. The cemetery is a very peaceful area and a great place for a stroll with a coffee and a pastry from the local Meyers Bakery.
Look around his grave. Slot of hidden references to himlen and his work.
It's a simple headstone in a beautiful cemetery, but if you loved his stories then it will probably be take you back to childhood.
Its special feelings.. I read a lot his stories in childhood... And all garden with tombs very nice..
Ίσως αυτό που αξίζει περισσότερο είναι ο περίπατος στο κοιμητήριο μέχρι να βρείτε τον τάφο του Αndersen. Για να δείτε πως αξιοποιούν οι Δανοί κάθε εκατοστό της γης τους!
