1. The landscape
Vestamager’s most important attraction is the landscape: the flat beach common with its open plains where sky and sea are sharply opposed, and where - if you look in the right direction - you can sense infinity. Looking in the other direction, your gaze will meet Ørestad’s futuristic buildings, with grazing cows in the foreground and the towers of Copenhagen further away.
Vestamager is one of the most important wetlands on Zealand and is well-known for its diversity, especially in species of waterfowl and wading birds. Here, just eight kilometres from the centre of Copenhagen, and ten minutes’ walk from the Metro, it is possible to see hunting birds of prey, fallow deer, a multitude of bird species, as well as grazing cows, sheep and horses. You can even bring your sleeping bag and spend the night in the open air, because Vestamager is fully accessible 24 hours a day.
