Copenhagen is a city of parks and gardens, old streets and medieval buildings, quiet squares - and of course the Little Mermaid! The Tivoli is a place to must see with its beautiful gardens and fun atmosphere. Delightfully cosmopolitan, with a vibrant nightlife and a warm and welcoming people, Copenhagen beckons.
You just cannot come to this fairytale city and not go to see Hans Christian Little Mermaid, sitting peacefully on a rock since 1913.
THINGS TO DO AND SEE
- Take castle tour to visit the fairy tale castle of Rosenborglocated in the city and has everything you could wish for in a palace - including the crown jewels!
- A visit to Tivoli is warranted - the amusement park with regular music concerts, a number of restaurants and even a pantomime theatre.
- Enjoy a walk down the longest street Stroget-savour the atmosphere, do some window-shopping and having an enjoyable stroll.
- Drive past the royal residence since 1784, Amalienborg that is one of the main sights of Copenhagen, although closed to the public, one can visit the attached museum.
- This is a city of cycles, so rent a bike and pedal away to see the sights!
- Nyhavn may be a tourist trap, but with good reason: On a sunny evening, it's one of the loveliest spots in Copenhagen. With its pretty painted houses clustered around the canalside.
GRAB A BITE
Copenhagen is great destination for foodies with a number of Michelin starred restaurants around the city, with Noma being the best. For a truly Danish food experience, try the unique smørrebrod that is essentially an open sandwich served with a whole lot of toppings and there are many restaurants that,serve this.If you are are Tivoli, there are plenty of little cafes to eat at.
The main shopping street at Copenhagen is Stroget that is mainly a pedestrian street, so stroll along and dive into the interesting little boutiques to find interesting artefacts to take back home.
The temperatures are pleasant and it never really gets hot here. At the start of summer it is cool with the temps being in the low 60s F and going up to the latter 60sC during peak summer in August. Always carry a jacket or sweater along as one never know when the cold winds come in from the sea.
The local currency in Denmark is the Krone (DKK). The U.S. dollars accepted in some of the more touristic stores and major credit cards are too.
