Assistens churchyard is Copenhagen's biggest cemetery. It was originally a place where smaller churchyards would be located to, as well as being a churchyard for the poor. Today it is open to all citizens to use. Celebrities, such as H.C. Andersen, Søren Kierkegård, Jens Juel or Martin Andersen Nexø are all buried here. There are plans to turn the churchyard into a park, as the local people already use it as a place to meet with there loved ones or to sit in the sun in the summer.
