A weekend break in Hvidovre in the company of nature and entertainment
Staying in Hvidovre combines an outdoor holiday with a big city break in Copenhagen, where there’s shopping, the theatre, attractions and everything else the capital has to offer.
A 10-minute train trip from Hvidovre Station will take you into the heart of Copenhagen, and services are regular, making a visit to the Danish capital quick and easy. Enjoy all the advantages of a city break in Hvidovre without the expense of staying in the city centre for your holiday.
Hvidovre also has plenty of shops and several attractions of its own, as well as pretty countryside if you and your family love fresh air and exercise. Visit Avedøresletten, home to the Avedøre Landsby, a re-creation of a bit of Danish history. If it’s sunny, take a picnic and enjoy the peace and quiet of this beautiful unspoilt area.
If culture is on the menu, head for Alarmpladsen, where you can visit Forstadsmuseet. Pick up their ‘Historien i Gaden’ (history on the street) guide and track down the various posters and sculptures around the site. Forstadsmuseet is not just a traditional museum housed in a single building. If you follow the guide, you’ll soon discover that the entire town is a living museum and offers a fun and interactive way to explore Hvidovre.
Another enjoyable museum is Cirkusmuseet. Here you can learn about the history of the Danish circus through exhibits consisting of vast wealth of artefacts, including films showing performances of the circus troupes of days gone by. Visitors of all ages will love the hands-on interactive section of the museum, where kids can try on costumes and families can take part in a circus quiz.
Hvidovre will whisk you away from the routine of day-to-day life to enjoy a whole host of scenic and cultural experiences with Copenhagen’s attractions right on your doorstep. This is the perfect holiday destination for the whole family.
