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.

On the map, the different areas in Vestskoven are indicated with various colours according to their use.
