Værløse is a town in Furesø Municipality in the northwestern outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark. As of 2014, it has a population of 13,083. Situated on the west side of the Hillerød Motorway, between Farum Lake to the north and Søndersø Lake to the south, it is surrounded by forest on three sides. Modern Værløse emerged around Værløse station in the 1950s; the original centre of the parish was the village of Kirke Værløse, located three kilometres to the west. The two communities have now merged. Kirke Værløse is mentioned in 1321–23 as Vetherløsa maklæ; the meaning of the name is unclear but it may be an old name for the lake Søndersø. The suffix -løse means "area used for grazing in a clearing"; the word maklæ means Freat. With the opening of the Slangerup Rail Line in 1906, Lille Værløse, a smaller village three kilometres to the east, obtained a more favorable location, its surroundings was redeveloped with summer houses in the 1940s. DSB took over the Slangerup Rail Line in 1945, shortening it with Farum as the new terminus in 1943.
The rapid growth of Copenhagen's suburbs in the 1950s and 1960s affected Lille Værløse, whose population quintupled between 1950 and 1970. The civil parish of Værløse formed the basis of Værløse Municipality which existed until 2006, it was merged January 2007 with the former Farum Municipality to form Furesø Municipality. Værløse has a small town centre with apartment buildings and a retail center surrounding Værløse station. Furesø Town Hall is located just north of the station; the rest of the town consists of single-family detached homes and terraced housing. Kirke Værløse and Værløse have now merged with the establishment of a business district in the western outskirts of Værløse. Michael Larsen a Danish author.

Stevns is a municipality in Region Sjælland on the southeast coast of the island of Zealand in south Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 250 square kilometres, has a population of 22,782; the municipality covers most of Stevns Peninsula. The third largest town and the site of its municipal council is the town of Hårlev. On 1 January 2007 Stevns municipality, as the result of Kommunalreformen, merged with Vallø municipality to form an enlarged Stevns municipality; the ten largest urban areas in the municipality: The town of Store Heddinge came into existence during the 13th century, Saint Katharina Church is from that time. The town received privileged status as a merchant town in 1441. A Latin preparatory school was founded in the town in 1620, but was closed down in 1739; the area is known for its white chalk cliffs. Stevns Klint, a popular tourist attraction, is one of these; the old town church by the small village of Højerup collapsed over the cliffs in 1928 due to erosion. The cliffs at Højerup are the place where the father-and-son team of scientists Luis and Walter Alvarez measured the highest level of iridium in the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary layer, which led them to propose their hypothesis that the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event was caused by an impact of a large asteroid 66 million years ago.
By 2014 Stevns Klint was listed on UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites in Northern Europe. In 2008 the Cold War Museum Stevns Fortress opened to the public, it features a large exhibition of military equipment and a 1.5-hour guided tour in the large underground system of the fortress. The underground system of the fortress features 1.6 kilometres of tunnels, living quarters, command centers, hospital and a chapel. And in addition two ammunition depots for its two 15 centimetres cannons; the tunnels are 18–20 metres below surface excavated in the chalk of Stevns. This top secret fortress was built in 1953 and remained operational until 2000. Stevns is home to Elverhøj, while not much of an attraction, it is famous for the fairy tale The Elf Mound by H. C. Andersen and the Danish national play Elves' Hill.
