Short weekend in Copenhagen
If you have a spare weekend, Copenhagen would make a nice trip. A tour of the city includes usually bus tour, photo stops at a couple of scenic areas of the city, a boat ride around the harbor and canals. All visitors to Copenhagen eventually make their way to Radhuspladsen, which is a lively square, full of street entertainers at all times of day and night. With Indre By on one side and the Tivoli Gardens and the district of Vesterbro on the other, it offers easy access to most of the sightseeings of the city.
One thing that Copenhagen doesn't have is a lot of skyscrapers! Other cities need skyscrapers to get visitors, Copenhagen reaches the same by with a little mermaid and an amusement park. What the visitor finds here is an experience of freedom that never needs to end. .
Boat ride around the harbor and canals
If the weather is nice during your visit, you may like to take a boat tour. A ride on the canals of Copenhagen is a great way to explore the city. These low-slung boats are much like those you can see in Amsterdam. Two companies offer basically the same four-language, hour-long tours. The Netto-Badene company provide tours for half the cost of its competitor. Having your picture taken with the Nyhavn is a great way to prove to your friends back home that you visited Copenhagen. These tours give you the city from a different angle, and are a nice way to spend the day.
Carlsberg Brewery Visitor Centre
For you that know your lager, you will know that Copenhagen is the home of Carlsberg lager. The Centre takes you through the history of brewing beer and the past of the Brewery. Its a little more than just a "beer tour" , there are models of antiquated brewing machinery, old beer wagons and trucks, also an interesting selection of old photos and diagrams. The good news is that Carlsberg hand out 2 small beers free of charge at the end of your visit, much to everyone’s delight. These are probably the cheapest beer you'll find in Copenhagen! It is recommended to those who love beer and want to see how one of the best beers in the world has been made.
This castle was built in the Dutch Renaissance style by Christian IV to use as his summer home. It now houses a museum and the treasury where the Danish royal jewels are kept.
There is a public viewing room where you can admire the amazing collection of Crown jewels, which include Queen Margreth's emeralds and pearls. These are considered such a national treasure that the Queen is not allowed to take the royal jewels with her when she travels outside the country!!
