Utterslev Mose is the biggest recreational natural area within Copenhagen. It’s located just before the “City” of Copenhagen ceases to exist, in the northwestern corner of the city.
I live right next to this wonderful area that is well suited for outdoor sports activities such as cycling, running, walking, skating, skateboarding and so much more. Besides being a huge wetland categorized as a swamp, Utterslev Mose got a massive makeover in the 1930s. It was transformed from merely a swamp into a recreational green park suitable for gaming and playing around, if that is what you wish to do on a sunny day.
I love to cycle around Utterslev Mose which I do everyday as a means of transport through the area, but also as an activity to get some outdoor exercise. That is if I can avoid the vast amount of birds that are living in Utterslev Mose such as geese, ducks and coots. This is why Utterslev Mose has officially been a protected area since year 2000, to keep the biologic status of it.
