  • Amager Fælled is a preserved nature reserve located close to ITU, allowing visitors for a walk in beautiful nature.
  • Amager Strand is a beach located at the other side of Amager. As school holidays don’t start until the end of June there should be space for going for a walk as well as relaxing.
