Zoo, Nyhavn, the little mermaid, the royal palace at Amalienborg, Assistens Cemetery, museums, cafés. Copenhagen has it all – as well as train, bus and flight connections to the rest of the country, family and friends.
Do you like green areas, clean harbour basins in which you can swim, gourmet restaurants and a cultural cycle ride through the city? There’s always something to enjoy on a holiday in Copenhagen, regardless of whether it’s a romantic weekend for two or a holiday for the whole family.
Learn and play
If it’s a family holiday, then visit one of the fascinating science centres in which you can learn while enjoying time with the family. Make a visit to Den Blå Planet national aquarium – Northern Europe’s biggest aquarium, which has more than 20,000 animals.
It’s difficult to rate one attraction ahead of another. And perhaps it’s an idea to just enjoy the city at random. Pop into the small, alternative places, explore the second-hand shops or the trendy department stores on the main shopping street, Strøget.
Copenhagen is open to everyone – 24 hours a day.
