VisitCopenhagen.com After paying 20 kroner for an authentic jostle on bus No.5, The Lakes (a.k.a. "Søerne") unfold like a verdant Nirvana. Henrik recommends a morning run or a peaceful stroll around the water in the shade of the chestnut trees. "This is the real Copenhagen; this is my Copenhagen! I love when the sun goes down and the Nordic light bathes it blue and orange." The lakes run along the streets of Vestre-, Nørre- and Østre Søgade.
