It’s officially spring once the cherry trees have begun to blossom and a few days ago the beautiful blooms at Bispebjerg Kirkegård were mere buds. Now they’ve exploded into vibrant pink flowers and people are already starting to visit the alley of cherry trees at this stunning cemetery.
It’s only going to get more beautiful as the trees begin to regrow their leaves as we head into the sunnier months in Copenhagen, and this year you can visit the cherry blossom. In 2020 the alley of cherry blossom was completely closed due to the pandemic and subsequent restrictions. Then, in 2021, people were allowed to visit but the need to distance themselves from others meant that queues to walk underneath the cherry trees were huge. There was even a ban on people hanging out there.
However, this year you’re free to visit whenever you want. Plus, the blossom will be around for about a month so there’s plenty of time to soak in the atmosphere and aroma created by the beautiful flowers. Of course, it’s important to remember that this is a working cemetery and people will be visiting their loved ones but there are signs to guide you towards the cherry blossom directly. It’s open between 7 am and 1o pm and it’s best to walk through the Støvnæs Allé entrance to the cemetery in order to see the blossom.
