The Assistens Cemetery (or Assistens Kirkegård in Danish) in Nørrebro was first established in 1760 and is somewhat like a combination of Paris's Père Lachaise cemetery and New York's Central Park. More than a quarter million people are buried here, among them some of Denmark's most famous figures including Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard, and Niels Bohr. On a sunny day, however, you will also find residents picnicking or reading a book in the shade of the trees. The "street" lined with poplars seen here is a popular path for both pedestrians and cyclists crossing the cemetery.
