Where to take your dog in Copenhagen

The Danish capital was once a thriving Viking fishing village and is now a major cultural hub. From forward-thinking globally acclaimed dining to the effortless style of its citizens, Copenhagen has put cool on the map. With over half a million households in Denmark owning a dog, you’ll be in good company in this city. Dogs are permitted to travel on public transport but larger dogs will need to pay a child’s fare. Whether you’re interested in shopping in its cool hipster boutiques, checking out some incredible art or eating some surprising new foods, you’ll find plenty to do with your dog in Copenhagen.

Kødbenhavns Hundepark

This popular dog park features plenty of open space for your dog to play and run around. The park is fully fenced with a secure gate so you can let your dog run free. There are a couple of agility activities, such as tyres, tunnels and ramps. There’s also benches for humans to sit at.

Roskilde Viking Ship Museum

Open every day from 10am-4pm (or 10am-5pm during the summer), the Viking Ship museum is a great way to experience the traditional history of the area. The ships are over 1,000 years old and there are some great guided tours or audio tours that you can take. Dogs are welcome to join you in the outdoor areas of the museum but are not permitted inside the Viking Ship Hall.

Sjælsølund hike

Located half an hour north of the city, this is a great walk to help you get back to nature. It’s an easy 5.8km loop that will take you just under an hour and a half to complete. The route is unpaved and uses forest pathways. It features several wooden boardwalks that allow you to cross the streams without getting wet feet. Dogs may be off leash in some areas. 

Allegade 10

Located near the popular Frederiksberg area of the city, Allegade 10 serves up Scandinavian dishes from 10am-10pm daily. Dogs are welcome in the bar and courtyard areas and will even be offered a bowl of water and a small meaty snack.
