Copenhagen’s premier racecourse, Klampenborg Galopbane, is kicking off its 2017 season with the first of its 20 annual meetings.

The history of Danish Gallop goes back hundreds of years.



To thousands of race fans, it is an endless source of excitement and fun (and of course, betting – but only if you’re over 18!).

Saturday entertainment for the family doesn’t get much better than a sunny day at the races!

The gates open at 11:30, and it’s recommended to come in good time to ensure the best possible view of the action.
