One of my personal favourites is a tour through Himmelev Forest that is growing on an old gravel pit. If you are an early riser, you may be lucky enough to experience the rich animal life in a beautiful, rough landscape. The area is also ideal for a multitude of activities. You could jump on your bike for a cycling tour following the Royal Trail (Kongesporet) through the forest – and don’t miss to climb the hill and sit on the little bench enjoying the splendid sight of town and fjord.
If you are on the lookout for a good eating place, I would recommend Pipers Hus in the City Park (Byparken). Here is a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and simple food – combined with a breathtaking view of the fjord. And coffee lovers should not miss a visit to Café Kaffekilden by the railway station to sample its divine coffee and delicious cakes. It is one of those places that you would prefer to keep to yourself.
