4 small Copenhagen adventures reachable by cargo bike

It’s no secret that Copenhagen has a lot to offer when it comes to family adventures. And it’s rarely hard to get to them. Especially if you have an electric cargo bike. Here are 4 easily reachable bike adventures for you and your family. 


If your kids think historic buildings are boring, then Vestvolden will definitely prove them wrong.  The amazing construction of Vestvolden, an old fortress for Copenhagen and the surrounding areas stretches from Avedøre to Utterslev Mose for a total of 15 kilometers. And you can ride your bike all along the way.

During the ride you can hop off and explore the hidden bunkers and pathways, go treasure hunting with the game “Forsvundet i Tiden” and even challenge other bike riders on the specially designed obstacle course for bikes!  


One might think that there isn’t much to do in Sydhavnen. But then one would definitely be wrong. The area between Vesterbro and Valby is filled with great and beautiful nature spots. But none quite like Sydhavnstippen. Only 6,2 km from City Hall Square there’s enough space and unobstructed views to get your heart rate to slow down and give your kids enough space to run themselves tired. 

So hop on your bike, bring your kids with you, pack a lunch and drive to Sydhavnstippen where not only nature, but also cute pettable sheep can be found. 


The trolls in the woods 

Everyone’s heard that trolls and giants live in the woods, right? So why not try and go find them? 

The artist Thomas Dambo has created giant sculptures of trolls and giants and left them around the woods of Rødovre, Hvidovre, Vallensbæk, Ishøj, Albertslund and Høje Taastrup. 

Ride your bike to one of the places, but don’t forget to print out the map on Thomasdambo.com. 

Otherwise they might stay hidden.

A small village almost frozen in time, reminding you of places like Bornhold and Ærø, but close enough to the city center that you can get there in 30 minutes. No, its not a utopian dream. It's Dragør.

With it's small timbered houses and its cobblestone streets Dragør gives you the feeling of taking a holiday without having to actually go very far. 

Ride all the way through Amager and reward yourself with a famous Dragør ice cream or a traditional seafood lunch at one of the many cute restaurants near the water. We’re sure both parents and children will have a great time.
