Whenever life gets really life’y, I like to take a walk through this WW2 Memorial Park. The place tends to put everything else into perspective.
Originally the area belonged to the Danish military, but between 1943-1945 the Nazi occupation used it for executions and burials of Danish resistance folks. In 1950, it opened as a memorial, and much love and reverence have been poured into creating a place of tranquility and beauty.
At the entrance, there’s a tiny exhibition, and the volunteer assistants will share all their knowledge if you’re interested. Visitors are free to walk the grounds on their own, but if you’d like to dive a little deeper, you can join a free public tour on weekends and school holidays at 13:00.
Besides the historical relevance and philosophical benefits, it’s also just a beautiful park – a place for slow walking and reflection.
