Vestskoven, Copenhagen

Since 1967 the Danish state has been purchasing land for Vestskoven. The primary object of establishing Vestskoven was to create a recreational area between the rapidly growing urban areas in western Copenhagen.

Therefore, planners of Vestskoven wanted to create the most varying landscape possible - a landscape of open forest with large areas of open grassland, artificial hills as well as mounds, lakes and many pathways and roads.
