The Municipality of Lyngby-Taarbæk has in cooperation with the local newspaper “Det Grønne Område” translated the Lyngby-Taarbæk Guide into English. The Danish version was first published in April of this year.
It is the publishers’ aim and aspiration, that citizens, guests and tourists will use the guide to explore our fantastic municipality.
Guided tours around the municipality.
The Guide is build up around 5 routes, all of which shows the majority of the landmarks in the municipality. In the back of the guide you will find a large detailed map of the area. With the map in one hand and the guide in the other, you will be well equipped and ready to explore. Thanks to the vast number of green pathways in our area, the routes are accessible on foot as well as on bicycle. You can also choose to access the routes by car or by public transport and then explore the nature and landmarks on foot.
Waterways and green lush areas are amongst the great attractions in Lyngby-Taarbæk – from Furesøen in the vest via Mølleåen through to Bagsværd Sø and Lyngby Sø ending up on the coast in Øresund in the east. The power of water has been an important part of Lyngby-Taarbæk for more than a 1000 years and the 9 mills along the waterways makes a unique piece of Danish history. In the middle of it all you will find Kongens Lyngby, which is a major city, Denmark’s Technical University and a line-up of intelligent businesses that combined makes the Vidensbyen Lyngby-Taarbæk (The city of knowledge Lyngby-Taarbæk). The 5 routes offer both new and old attractions.
You can also find information in the guide about the areas of Ulrikkenborg, Lyngby, Virum, Lundtofte, Hjortekær, Taarbæk and lot of other useful information about the municipality, but far from everything worth knowing and exploring is contained in the guide, therefor we refer to the internet for more information about Lyngby-Taarbæk.
The guide can be picked-up in Citizen Service (Borgerservice) – Toftebæksvej 12, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby or at the library. You can also access the guide online.
