The Mill River

Expert Pick Family Time Off The Beaten Path

Lyngby/Jægersborg Hegn


The name of this river originates in the many mills (Ørholm, Brede, Rårvad and Strandmøllen) located along the small river. Mølleåen runs through a scenic landscape from Frederiksdal to Øresund. For children and child-like grown-ups, a summer trip in canoe or kayak up and down Mølleåen is a marvelous experience. You can go exploring and find a fairytale land all of your own, whilst paddling down the winding stream. Even if it is busy, you will probably be able to find small creeks where you can pull ashore and enjoy nature completely undisturbed. Do remember that canoeing and kayaking take some skill and that you should have some experience before embarking on these activities. Alternatively, you can walk or cycle on the paths alongside Mølleåen.
