UNESCO World Heritage Site

In 2015, The Deer Park was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of its significant history. The Deer Park was once used for hunting by the Danish royalty – parforce hunts – which is still clear in the landscape today. Visiting the park, you will notice that the roads are linked in a special star-shape, which made it easier to keep track of the dogs used for hunting.

Hubertus hunt

Once each year, on the first Sunday in November, you can experience the Hubertus hunt in the park. The Hubertus hunt is a symbolic continuation of the old parforce hunts for which Dyrehaven was originally built. The tradition dates back to 1900 and is the final hunt of the season. Today, there are no hunting dogs, and the fox is replaced by two experienced riders, who ride the front with fox tails on their riding jackets.

Dyrehavsbakken

The Deer Park is also home to the world’s oldest amusement park – Dyrehavsbakken. Dating all the way back to 1583 when it was just a marketplace. You will find 32 running rides and 35 games in the park, as well as a variety of restaurants and bars.
