Assistens Cemetery (Assistens Kirkegård)
+45 3537 1917
Assistens Cemetery is Copenhagen's biggest cemetery. It was originally a place where smaller cemeteries would be relocated, and also served as a churchyard for the poor. Today it is open to all visitors. Celebrities, such as H.C. Andersen, Søren Kierkegård, Jens Juel or Martin Andersen Nex are all buried here. There are plans to turn the churchyard into a park, as the local people already use it as a place to meet with there loved ones or to sit in the sun in the summer.
