ARKEN Museum for Moderne Kunst, Ishøj (Part 2)

If you missed the first post I made on ARKEN, make sure you check that out alongside this one 🙂 In this post I’ll share with you some snaps of ARKEN’s outdoor sculpture park/garden! It was a beautiful walk on a sunny day.

Oh, and the cafe in ARKEN overlooking the sculpture park was pretty cool as well, I’ve included photos of the place towards the bottom of this entry. I felt like I stepped into an architecture and design magazine (I feel that way quite often in Denmark actually…)!

Valbyparken, Copenhagen

Goodness, this place was an amazing surprise. A big green park a mere 20 minute cycle ride from home, and with a beach? In the city? Yes and yes.

My cycle going there and back wasn’t very pretty – it was a hot sunny day, I’m very road-shy, I had no idea where I was going and had to stop and check my map every 2 minutes. I also haven’t quite perfected my cool cycle chic look. Regardless, I would definitely brave the trip again to revisit this park.

I’m guessing these are poplar trees?
Either way this long path lined with trees is a distinctive entry point into the park, and very nice to cycle down.
Loved the little peeks of water through the trees.
Plenty of folks windsurfing at this place!
It was an almost blindingly bright day.
I skipped on a few stones by the water 🙂
I can’t say I’ve ever seen people windsurf before, but it looks fun!
Clear water at the beach.
Just beautiful, isn’t it?
