Copenhagen is an embracing and openhearted city that offers a wonderful way of life. Even though it may be cold outside, the Danes places much value on warmth and hygge, which perfectly epitomizes the Danish lifestyle.
The city of Copenhagen was established in the 11th Cenutury and ever since the city has been breaking records. In Copenhagen, you find one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, Tivoli, and the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. Strolling down the streets of Copenhagen, you will notice two other exceptional things about Copenhagen: You are practically always surrounded by water and great architecture. So grab a smørrebrød (open face sandwich), sit by the waterfront and enjoy the view, or jump on a traditional canal tour boat and enjoy Copenhagen form the seaside, just as the Danes do it.
Below we present to you a top five on places to see while you are in Copenhagen:
Strøget shopping street
Take a stroll on one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe – in the heart of Copenhagen. Walk along the 1.1 kilometer long street from Rådhuspladsen (the City Hall Square) to Kongens Nytorv (the King’s New Square), explore the wealth of shops and enjoy the shows from the various street performers.
Rundetårn, the Round Tower
Climb up to the top of the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. Walk 200 meters up the spiral path to the top of the 36-meter tall tower and enjoy the magnificent view of the old part of Copenhagen from the outdoor platform.
The National Museum of Denmark
Walk into the Prince’s Palace from the 18th century and get overwhelmed by the amazing collection of artefacts from the Stone Age, the Viking Age, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and Modern History. The National Museum of Denmark has the largest collection of Danish cultural and historic items and thus, the biggest part of the Museum is dedicated to the Danish history.
Nyhavn, New Harbor
Take a walk along Nyhavn and embrace the feel from the cozy restaurants and cafes that dominates the old harbor of Copenhagen. Nyhavn is filled with people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere by the canal. Take in the beautiful sight of the colorfully renovated townhouses from the 18th century together with the historical wooden ships along the pier.
The Little Mermaid
Walk along Langelinie a see one of the most famous tourist attractions in Copenhagen, The Little Mer-maid. The bronze and granite sculpture is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale about a mermaid who fell in love with a young and handsome prince on land. The mermaid used to sit on her rock in the water hoping to catch a glimpse of the prince.
