From the 1930’ies the government in Denmark wanted to encourage people to lead a healthy life, this included being physical active and getting into the nature. So they commissioned a beach park to be constructed north of Copenhagen. The Danish architect Arne Jacobsen was handed the task to create the beach park Bellevue. Afterwards the municipality put him in charge of developing the surroundings further, so he designed residential building and a theater. Today the area and the buildings are considered cultural heritage.
