Sorgenfri (lit. "free of sorrow", like Sans Souci) is a neighbourhood in Lyngby-Taarbæk municipality in Greater Copenhagen lying just north of Kongens Lyngby.

The neighbourhood is enclosed between three landmarks:

  1. The forest with Lyngby Åmose, Mølleådalen and Spurveskjulskoven (lit. "sparrow shelter" forest) in the south
  2. The lake Furesøen in the west
  3. The parklands of Sorgenfri Palace and the Open Air Museum in the east

In the north of Sorgenfri lies the town Virum - which was till the end of the First World War a village. "From the 1920, the first land was turned into the settlement as we now know it".[1]
