Denmark is famed for castles, museums and palaces, and even a week in the capital is not enough! Copenhagen is one of the most visited cities in Europe, and it has endless activities and attractions. It is also a busy and expensive city, so booking your copenhagen apartment hotel in advance might be a good idea. If you are short on time and want to explore the best of the best, we have a list that may come in handy!
Make time for Nyhavn harbor area
If you have raved about colorful postcards from Denmark, it must be about Nyhavn, which is the historic old harbor area of the Danish capital. There are many bars, cafés, and restaurants here, and you can also explore some of the historic ships that are docked here. Close by, you can also book boat tours, and that can be a fun way to explore the city.
Do visit Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli Gardens is one of the oldest theme parks in the world, and it has that old-charm that cannot be denied. Many people come to Copenhagen just for the love and passion for Tivoli Gardens, and you can spend an entire day here with the kids. It is also fun for adults, and some of the rides are worth the hype. One of the rides that you need to try is the Star Flyer.
Shop at Strøget
If you have been thinking of fancy shopping, we strongly recommend Strøget, which is one of the largest pedestrian malls in the world. There are high-street brands, known boutiques and small cafes here and there, so you can spend hours in one go. We agree that the prices aren’t basic for the budget traveler, but for the love of fashion, this one deserves a visit.
Christiansborg Palace is must-see
You cannot come to Denmark and not see Christiansborg Palace. It is the still used by the royal family and houses the Supreme Court, as well as, the Danish Parliament. You can go for a guided tour, which is always worth the experience, and we recommend that you keep at least four hours aside to appreciate the beauty of this palace.
Finally, do make time for Little mermaid statue, which is the most iconic landmark or Copenhagen, and you may want to rent a bike to explore the city better. Rentals are available all over the city and don’t cost a fortune.
