  • Nyhavn

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    I just strolled there on July around noon, shirtless, soaking up the intense sunshine! Very colorful, relaxed and copacetic. Got a beer at a café, very expensive like 13 USD! There was a team doing optical illusion. Rent a bike! that's the way to explore CPH best.

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous area situated in Christianshavn within the former military barracks of Bådsmandsstræde and parts of the city ramparts. The barracks were abandoned by the military between 1967 and 1971, and in 1971 the fences were broken down and the area reclaimed by locals, possibly partly as a protest against the...

  • Little Mermaid

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Yes, I know. The 'Little Mermaid' statue is an icon, a prime tourist spot, somewhere which is a 'must-see'. And although I wasn't particularly bothered, I did find myself one evening taking a (longish) walk from my hotel near the central railway station to see the mermaid. It was indeed a longish walk, longer than the 2.5 miles it should have been...

  • Canal & Harbour Tours

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    There are two companies in Copenhagen offering canal tours all year round. The tour is the same but there is a big difference in price (40 kr for Nettobådene, 75 for the others). Don't miss out on this great way to see all the sights in Copenhagen from the water side. The blue Netto Boats are a bid hidden on the side of Nyhavn, but the price is...

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    It is very easy to walk around Copenhagen city centre. We arrived at Amalienborg Palace about 10.30am, later it gets busier. There are four identical buildings built in the 18the centry around an octagonal courtyard - one for the Queen, another for Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary. One is for ceremonial events and the fourth is a...

  • Tivoli Garden

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Been there in December, there was a Christmas market. It's a nice place to stroll around. If you're with kids they will love the rides there. There's a entrance fee I just don't remember how much but it was reasonable.

  • Carlsberg Brewery

    4 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    The Carlsberg Factory is a bit of a walk from the main town, but it's a pleasant walk, and I believe there are buses that go nearby too. It's not the most mind-blowing tour you can go on, and they don't actually even brew beer here anymore, but it's quite good. It's nice and laid back, and you get a couple of beers for the entry price of DKK80....

  • Strøget

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    The main avenue in Copenhagen is a pedestrian sucession of shops, with all the expected brands. PS Funny thing! I've been there again, without Fernanda, and I "had to" walk all the avenue again. This means that, once there, you can't miss it.

  • Rosenborg Palace & Kongens Have

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Walk across the pleasant gardens of Kongens Have to Rosenborg Slot or Palace. This was the home of the Danish royals before Amalienborg, until 1724. It has many oil paintings and some furniture.

    Frederiks Kirke, which is popularly known in Copenhagen as Marmorkirken, or the Marble Church, is situated in the area of Frederiksstaden next to Amalienborg Palace.

  • Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    In this nice building there was the risk of being distracted by the rich collection and not noticing the building itself. That doesn’t happen, because both the entrance and exit are done through the main lobby, where the architectural details are more remarkable. The oldest part of the museum, the Dahlerup Wing, housing the French and Danish...

    Museum Erotica is definitely worth a visit. It is quite explicit and I think a bit more interesting than very similar museums in Amsterdam and Paris. Opening hours: 1 May - 30 September ALL WEEK : 10.00 - 23.00 1 October - 30 April Sunday - Thursday 11.00 - 20.00 Friday - Saturday 10.00 - 22.00

    Copenhagen's Kastellet is a fine example of a Star Fort, a kind of fortification that was developed to withstand the era of gunpowder. It consists of a flat structure, built from a series of triangular bastions, all of which provide cover for the others. It is a marvelous piece of engineering, and looks incredible from the air, where its geometric...

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    You might be forgiven for thinking that Copenhagen doesn't have a cathedral, but you'd be wrong. Vor Frues Kirke (the Church of our Lady) may be relatively unimposing but the place has a long history. The first church on this site was begun no later than 1187 in the then new town of Hafn, under Bishop Absalon who is frequently credited with being...

    I was so pleased that I decided to visit this museum. I had saved it for my last day and spent 2 and a half hours exploring its wonderful displays. Even that wasn't really enough, because most of that time was spent in the prehistory section...my passion. There is so much to see, from superb collections of flint and stone artefacts to...

  • Assistens Kirkegården - Cemetery

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Imagine a walled city with cemeteries so overfilled, that caskets are stored above ground. Cannons are being fired to put some motion in the air to mix the stench of death with the smell of gunpowder. During the plague epidemic of 1711 this was Copenhagen. They badly needed a place to bury their dead, and there simply wasn’t room inside the walls....

    If you like ambitious modern architecture, then you will definitely want to take a look at the Black Diamond that houses the Royal Danish Library on Christiansborg.

They are putting all their strength into working hard. This famouse Fountain was...

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    I wouldn´t recommend to visit the sheet café on the Kongens Nytorv square. The waiter became physical unruly against a women just because she was eating one ice-cream, which she bought in another shop. This incident is inexcusable and in general I was not happy with the service compared to the price of the food and drinks.

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    The Tycho Brahe planetarium is worth a visit and for that matter nice to look at from the outside too. it also has an IMAX cinema and a good restaurant. The architecture of the place is quite different and sitting by the end of one of the Copenhagen lakes makes it a bit of a landmark.

    This is the Anglican (Episcopal) church in Copenhagen, erected 1887 in British gothic style; a fine example of Victorian church architecture.

I passed this church on the way to see the Little Mermaid and...

When the city's defensive ring was decommissioned in the 1870's the local council decided...
