[1] Common (Danish: Amager Fælled) is a 223 hectare nature reserve on Amager in Copenhagen.[1] It contains meadows, lakes, forests and a range of wildlife such as Highland cattle.[2]

History

The area where Amager Common now lies is a former military area. Abandoned in 1964, Amager Common gained protected status in two rounds: Kalvebodkilefredningen in 1990 and Amager Fælled fredningen in 1994.[3]

Amager Common contained one of Copenhagen's execution sites, with the final execution taking place on April 22, 1845.[4]
