Furesø Municipality


Furesø Municipality

Furesø municipality is a municipality (Danish: "kommune") in Denmark. It has a population of 37,667 (2008) and an area of 55.68 km² (21.50 sq.mi.). The municipality belongs to the Copenhagen Capital Region and lies 20 km northwest of Copenhagen. It is a municipality with much forest and access to several lakes, of which it is named after the largest, Furesøen, which has a popular beach with rest rooms, a small candy/ice shop and in addition sportsboat (competition) clubs and a restaurant open all year.

In March 2007, it was decided by the Ministry of the Environment that Flyvestation Værløse, a former air base- Denmark's first - situated 17 km from the City Hall square of Copenhagen and given to the municipality to own, would be granted legally protected status from extensive real estate exploitation.

The last three stations, namely Hareskov, Værløse and Farum, of one S-train commuter train line from Copenhagen are located in the municipality.

It was established as a merger of the former Farum and Værløse municipalities on January 1 2007 as a consequence of the Municipal Reform.
