The city park Fælledsparken of Copenhagen is the most visited park of the capital and is used for different events, gatherings and activities. The park has a lot to offer visitors like the biggest skatepark in Northern Europe, outdoor chess tables for chess players, sports grounds, a dance pavillon and of course their very own MONSTRUM playground. 

The playground consists of five small versions of Copenhagen’s most famous buildings: The Town Hall Tower, the tower of Our Saviour’s Church, the Round Tower, the cupola of the Marble Church and the tower of the Stock Exchange. 

The playground won The Danish Design Award and "The Best of the City" award in 2012.
