Lake in Fælledparken

The Fælledparken is the largest public park in the district of Østerbro the Danish capital Copenhagen . The approximately half a square kilometer park was created as the result of a competition between 1908 and 1914 based on a design by the Danish landscape architect Edvard Glæsel in collaboration with the Copenhagen municipality. A large lake is part of the park. The avenue leading through the park is named after Jens Jensen, who, as the mayor of the city at the time, was the driving force behind the realization of the complex. The bronze Genforenings monument by the sculptor Axel Poulsen was created between 1926 and 1930 .

The park, which houses the Telia Parken national football stadium , a skating facility and other sports areas, is used for various activities, including training for sports clubs, running competitions, traditionally for the May 1st rally , concerts, Copenhagen Carnival, etc. In the park there is also a sports clubhouse and a café pavilion. Adjacent to Fælledparken is one of Denmark's largest hospitals, Rigshospitalet , which is why part of the park used to be a landing pad for rescue helicopters . Other buildings in the neighborhood are the House of the Danish Freemasons , the Niels Bohr Institute and the Krudttønden Cultural Center.

During a night walk in the park, Werner Heisenberg , who was a guest at the Niels Bohr Institute, developed the decisive idea for his uncertainty principle in 1927 .
