Copenhagen has an exciting history. It grew from a small, simple fishing village to the capital of Denmark and survived fire, plague, invasion and almost everything in between. Today, Copenhagen is known as a cultural capital, a hub for design and experimentation, a place for foodies and a country of adventure. It is not possible to see everything Copenhagen has to offer in a single day - or two, but here is an inspiration for your trip.
Best of Copenhagen
Full day trip to Copenhagen to visit some of the famous landmarks. Stop at Amalienborg, the royal residence, which consists of four identical Rococo palaces, framed by a spacious octagonal square. The fairy tale castle Rosenborg is built in the Dutch Renaissance style. Today the castle is a museum and houses the Danish Crown Jewels and Crown Regalia. Then, head towards the harbour and board a canal boat to explore many of Copenhagen's landmarks from the sea; The Little Mermaid, the Opera Building, the Stock Exchange and Nyhavn. Allow guests one or two hours on their own to visit the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, take a stroll on Strøget, one of the world's longest pedestrian streets, or explore the old Latin Quarter.
This is an ideal introduction to the Danish capital, Copenhagen, if you want to offer a tour of the city's 850 years of history in a short timeframe with panoramic views. Make a quick stop at Amalienborg Castle and continue to the old harbour of Nyhavn. Nearby you can see "Kongens Nytorv" Kings Square where the Royal Theater, embassies and many fashionable restaurants and shops are located. Drive past Danmarks Nationalbank and Christiansborg, which houses the Danish government. Next to the Glyptotek lies Copenhagen's beloved Tivoli, which you can see from the outside. Get a glimpse of the town hall, the adventure castle Rosenborg and take a photo stop at the Little Mermaid statue before returning to North Sealand.
