Assistens Cemetery
This huge cemetery is the biggest green space in the increasingly fashionable Nørrebro area. It’s the final resting place of some of the greatest Danes of all time, including Nobel Prize–winning physicist Niels Bohr, philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, and designer Finn Juhl. Counterintuitively, the grave of perhaps its most famous resident, Hans Christian Andersen, who died in 1875 at the age of 70, is rather plain for a man whose beloved fairy tales—among them “The Little Mermaid,” “The Ugly Duckling,” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes”—were so fanciful.
