Get ready for some wild activities
Copenhagen is not just pastry, hygge and red and white flags. The Danes enjoy action sports and outdoor life like few others, and you will see people in physical activity pretty much everywhere.
Some of the activities are free with others offering different price levels. Access can also vary, so check before you go.
So get ready for some really wild activities that will raise your pulse and make you scream!
Copenhill is the spot for outdoor skiing year around. An spectacular artificial slope with artificial snow on a huge power plant! Sounds crazy? it is! Here you also find a climbing wall (also artificial) that will take you (or at least some brave people) high up in the sky. In fact, this is one of the tallest man made climbing walls in europe!
CPP Copenhagen Cable Park
Open from April to October this all water park takes you (and your wakeboard) for a fast ride in the harbor. Just grab a wire and off you go. However If you are new to wake boarding you better join a course and learn the safe way. If you´re already into this sport all equipment can be rented at the nearby café.
CPP is located quite close to Copenhill so you can easily visit both of them in the same day, If you have enough strength for it.
GoMonkey climbing park
In and around Copenhagen you find a few parks where all the fun happens up in the high trees. Connected to some safety equipment you challenges your sense of balance and fear of scary heights.
Open between Mars and November.
Søndermarken (quite close to the Zoo).
A complete outdoor skate park with a great half pipe and bowl. Open 24 hours a day and always free entry.
Edel Sauntes Allé 3
A spectacular 14 m wall climbing portal. This is also cool community park with lots of graffiti.
Nannasgade 4, Nørrebro
CPH Skate Park
An indoor skatepark themed for street. More rails than ramps. For 50 Dkr a day you can enjoy this very well maintained place. Visit their web site for more info.
Over at Nordhavn you find this huge action packed place. In fact the largest one in the Nordic countries. And among the activities you will find, for example, a trampoline park, a parkour park and a climbing park. Check out their website.
A nice 300 sqm outdoor skatepark. The facility is of the street type and quite simple in construction. The location is impressive with the sea a few meters away, and a large street food market next door.
Urban Ranger Camp
When B&W left its gigantic premises on Refsehaleøen, it was given the opportunity for completely new activities. So now you can climb right under the roof and come up with a lot of adrenaline-pumping activities! And all in a safe way. This is action sports at its best!
More information is available on their website.
The danish climbing club Dansk Bjerg- og Klatreklub has its own indoor climbing course, Blocks&Walls. Here there are many opportunities for varied climbing, both with and without ropes.
A DIY skateboard park in a run-down area. It was built (by a pro) illegally under a bridge. Really interesting place. Open every day.
Hullet, The Hole
Another enthusiastically built skateboard park. It seems no longer maintained so be careful. its future looks uncertain and houses will probably be built on the land.
The world’s longest skateboard park
In Høje Taastrup there is actually the world’s longest skateboard park! I don’t want to comment on whether the length is important or not, but the course looks really good.
Just find your way to the mall City 2 (more info about City 2 here). Here the track starts and then goes in the direction of the railway station. The facility also has a function as a rainwater collector.
