Get an insight into the many sides of Denmark’s fascinating personality as you embark on a wealth of things to do in Copenhagen – from ancient castles to 100 year old amusement parks and a thriving dining and music scene.
By day or night, you’ll be fascinated by the wide range of attractions that the Danish capital has to offer. Spend your days learning about culture and history at the city’s museums, and historical buildings or enjoy some retail therapy at the flea markets, shopping centres and bustling streets. The innovative dining and varied nightlife give you plenty of opportunity to let your hair down after a day of sightseeing.
Start your shopping in Copenhagen on Støget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets which boasts everything from budget stores to designer boutiques. Stroll along the curved course of the Købmagergade shopping street, which is typical of Copenhagen’s labyrinthine medieval city centre or get a sense of local life at the Nørrebro Flea Market.
Visit Amalienborg, four identical rococo buildings that have housed the royals since 1784 or go to Nationalmuseet to see some of Denmark’s incredible exhibits. Experience the lighter side of Copenhagen at Tivoli. More than an amusement park, you’ll find a pantomime theatre and open-air stage amongst its many amenities.
The Danish capital has a thriving social scene, with incredible gastronomy. Grab food on-the-go at 42 Raw, which serves hip and healthy raw food and nourishing smoothies or pick up refined Vietnamese street food at LêLê. Alternatively, opt for traditional cuisine and enjoy an affordable Danish-style lunch on the outdoor terrace at Post & Tele Museum café.
Just across from Tivoli Gardens, Vesterbro has transformed into one of the city’s hippest areas and a hangout for trendsetters with its funky boho-cafes and uber cool retro clothes shops. Another area that has evolved is Nørrebro with its buzzing galleries, clubs and bars – hang around to see how the atmosphere changes from day into night.
Make the most of your time in Denmark's capital and take advantage of free and discounted transport and admission as you explore the numerous museums and attractions the city has to offer. The Copenhagen Card includes free transport by train, bus and Metro (including to and from the airport), free entry to 65 museums and attractions, discounts on many attractions, sightseeing tours, restaurants and a comprehensive guide. Choose between a 24-hour or a 72-hour Copenhagen Card.
Enjoy the best of Copenhagen by coach and boat on this tour of the city and harbour. Your tour starts by coach, first passing the Tivoli Gardens, New Carlsberg Glyptotek art museum, the magnificent Gefion Fountain and Kongens Nytorv. At the old Fish Market, a pre-booked canal boat is waiting to take you on a cruise through the bustling harbour of Copenhagen. Your tour concludes in the very heart of Copenhagen at Gammel Strand, which is only a few minutes’ walk from Stroget, the main shopping street in the city.
Learn about Denmark's royal history on a day trip to North Zealand - the region north of Copenhagen where majestic castles take centre stage. With an expert guide at your side, explore Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, seeing sites like the Coronation Chapel and Marble Gallery, while hearing tales of King Christian IV. Before returning to Copenhagen, stop for photos by Fredensborg Castle and then spend time at leisure in Elsinore - home to the UNESCO-listed Kronborg Castle.
Join the Grand Tour of Copenhagen and view all the major sights of the Danish Capital by coach. You will pass by the Tivoli Gardens and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Drive through the colourful canal district where your local guide will point out the major sites including the National Museum to Christiansborg Palace, home to the Danish Parliament.
If you love castles, Denmark has almost as many fairy tale castles as it does fairy tales. Leave Copenhagen behind as you head north through magnificent Danish countryside and coastline. Visit the picturesque region of North Zealand just outside Copenhagen, where you will see Kronborg Castle made famous as the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet as well as the magnificent Fredensborg Palace and Frederiksborg Castle.
