About the Municipality of Rudersdal

The Municipality of Rudersdal is located where the suburbs of Copenhagen end and the forests, lakes, and open landscapes of North Zealand begin.

It is a cluster of large and small communities surrounded by beautiful scenery and home to more than 55,000 people.

The municipality covers an area of 73.2 sq. kilometres and is 20 minutes by public transport or car from the centre of Copenhagen.

The vision of the Municipal Council is to make Rudersdal the best place to live for all its citizens, regardless of age and origin. We work to turn this vision into reality every day.
