Lyngby—or even the King’s Lyngby—is a lively commercial centre, a university town, a green residential area, and a vibrant centre for culture and recreation. Known colloquially as ’the Green Area’ more than half of the municipality consists of forests, fields, lakes and streams. You will have ample opportunity to enjoy the countryside in the Deer Park—King Frederik III’s old hunting grounds (est. 1670)—on a boat ride on the lakes, or on bike or foot along the idyllic Mill Stream and the Øresund coast.

Among the many cultural attractions are the exhibitions at the Open Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet), at Brede Works (once Denmark’s biggest textile factory) and at the former country house, Sophienholm from 1769. Another must see is the world's oldest amusement park, Dyrehavsbakken with a stunning location on the outskirts of the Deer Park and a history that stretches back well over 400 years.
