The Kings' North Zealand National Park is the second largest national park in Denmark and it opened in 2018. It contains spectacular nature and currently holds one of the largest forests (Gribskov) and two of Denmarks largest lakes (Arresø og Esrum Sø).
The national park is unlike others divided into various areas. They are not all connected and you will need to travel a bit between areas to visit the popular spots. This fact makes a car the best option for visiting the park. Be aware that there are no visitor centers in the national park at this moment.
A car is the best option for getting to the park. All the sights are within a 1-hour drive from Copenhagen, where you can easily rent a car. The highways will take you north on Zealand to the park sights.
Getting there by bus is somewhat tricky. Because the sights are scattered across a large area, you won't easily get to see multiple sights if you go by bus. Decide on an area to visit if you are traveling by bus. It is recommended to rent a car instead.
Copenhagen is close to the national park and you can fly here from pretty much anywhere in the world.
When to visit
Because the park is located in the vicinity of Copenhagen, you can visit at any time of the year. There are plenty of sights to see in and around the park if you are unlucky with the weather.
