The Copenhagen Lakes

The minute the sun comes out, the vast area around the lakes fills up with strolling couples, panting joggers, brunch devotees, kids feeding the ducks, and best friends sipping thermos coffee while taking in the best views of the city.

Do an early morning jog on the paths surrounding the lakes (6kms), or head for one of the fine cafés: Kaffesalonen at 6, Peblinge Dossering, Café Front Page at 21, Sortedam Dossering, and Den Franske Café, 101, Sortedam Dossering. Excellent views!

During summer you can rent rowing boats at the Søernes Bådudlejning (Copenhagen Lakes Boat Rentals), situated by the Dronning Louises Bridge.
