Leisure and sport


BadningLyngby and its surroundings offer many possibilities of bathing all year.

If you are not a polar bear or one of the local Vikings, you will probably prefer to bathe under a roof in the winter. Lyngby Svømmehal (swimming pool) at Lyngby Stadion (Lundtoftevej 53) offers a 50m international indoor pool and all facilities.
In the summer months it is possible to bathe either in Frederiksdal Fribad, on Taarbæk Beach, or Bellevue Beach.


If one prefers to combine the beautiful countryside with exercise, this is also possible in Lyngby. Frederiksdal Kano- og Bådudlejning and Nybro Kano-udlejning offer the opportunity of a relaxed day on the water. Bring your family to a tour on the river through the forest or on the open lake. It is also possible to hire rowing boats.


The Øresund offers many possibilities for angling, either from the shore or from a boat. Fishing trips can be booked in Vedbæk and Skovshoved harbours.


Each day all year, there is a chance to ride a gentle pony in the Deer Park. Contact Fortunens Ponycenter just at the entrance to the Deer Park.
