Lyngby—also known as the King’s Lyngby—is a lively commercial center, university town, green residential area, and vibrant center for culture and recreation. Known colloquially as "the Green Area", more than half of the municipality of Lyngby-Taarbk consists of forests, fields, lakes, and streams. You will have ample opportunity to enjoy the countryside in Deer Park—King Frederik III’s old hunting grounds (est. 1670)—on a boat ride on the lakes, or by bicycle or foot along the idyllic Mill Stream and the Øresund coast.
Among the many cultural attractions in Lyngby are the Open Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet), Brede Works (once Denmark’s biggest textile factory), and 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 Deer Park and a history that stretches back well over 400 years.
