public park in central CopenhagenDenmarkØrstedsparken is one in a series of parks which were laid out on the grounds of the old fortification ring, which was decommissioned in the 1870s. The park still retains elements from the old fortifications, a section of the moat now serves as an elongated lake and former bastions appear in the landscape as small hills. The park is named for the brothers Ørsted, the polician and jurist Anders Sandøe Ørsted, and the physicist Hans Christian Ørsted.Image

 Both men are commemorated with monuments in the park.
