Vestre Cemetery – a place for the living

A tree-lined avenue at Vestre Cemetery in Copenhagen

Vestre Cemetery is not only a place for the dead. The people of Copenhagen use their churchyards as gardens and places to relax quitely, walk the dog, the baby stroller or go for a run. Vestre cemetery is no exception to that. If you are in need of a quiet moment take a walk here or sit on one of the many benches and enjoy the life going by. This is where you see the natives when they are in their own back yard.
