The ice on several lakes in Copenhagen is now thick enough for ice skating


It is now possible to skate on several lakes around the country. The ice is measured continuously.

The City of Copenhagen has for days measured the thickness of the ice on the lakes in the capital. And finally on Saturday in high sun, the Technical and Environmental Administration has given the green light for ice skating on the part of the northern lake that faces Gyldenløvesgade.

Sankt Jørgens Sø consists of two dam-separated lake areas. Only the part between Gyldenløvesgade and Kampmannsgade is open for traffic on the ice. So not the one towards Gammel Kongevej.

Also on the next lake, Peblinge Lake, which is located between Gyldenløvsgade and Dronning Louise’s Bridge, you must now move. This is stated by the Technical and Environmental Administration around 15.30 to Ritzau.

It is still dangerous and forbidden to move on the other lakes.

The ice on the canal in Østre Anlæg on Østerbro was also measured on Saturday afternoon to the required 18 centimeters thickness, so you can also move here.

The lake in Ørstedsparken was also opened on Saturday.

The municipality emphasizes that you should only go out on the ice in places where signs indicate that it is safe. Copenhagen Police tell TV2 Lorry that four young people and a dog smoked through the ice at Amager Strandpark. However, they managed to save themselves before the police arrived.

In Aarhus Municipality, Saturday’s drilling shows that the ice on the lakes in Skjoldhøjkilen, Hovmarken in Lystrup and Klokkeskov in Stautrup is thick enough for them to be opened for ice skating.

The three other lakes that Aarhus Municipality regularly checks are at Vilhelmsborg Skov, at Skødstrup and Stadionsøerne in Aarhus. None of them had the required 16 centimeters of ice thickness on Saturday.

On four lakes in Frederikshavn Municipality and two lakes in Hjørring Municipality, the ice has already been opened, so you can move out on the lakes legally.

The same applies in Nyborg Municipality, where citizens can go out on the moat Kamgraven by Kongens Bastionsvej.

The green light for the skates has also been given on Zealand to some lakes in Egedal Municipality, Hørsholm Municipality and Furesø Municipality. Gadekæret in Brønshøj is also approved. The places where it is allowed to move on the ice, it is clearly marked with signs.

The authorities strongly urge that you take care of yourself and each other, and that you remember that traffic on the ice is at your own risk. It is also encouraged that you comply with the corona restrictions and that you keep the necessary distance.

The ice thickness is continuously measured.

It is not allowed to move out on the ice if it is not signposted that it is allowed. It is also not allowed to move out on the ice on other lakes, rainwater basins and water holes in the municipalities.
