A few minutes from the city centre

 

Only a few minutes by the metro from the centre of Copenhagen is this gem; West Amager, an area of reclaimed seabed used for keeping cattle and sheep on grass and for a few hundred years as an army shooting range. Now you'll still find some cattle and sheep there but the army has retreated and the area is open to the public. And it's being used by a lot of the locals to walk the dog, for the daily jogging or bike ride or just to get a bit away from the notice of the city. Here the only noise is the bird calls and every few minutes a low flying airplane from the nearby airport.
