Most Viewed Things to Do in Copenhagen

  • 1. Tivoli Garden

    Most Danes speak English. A nation of only 4 million people does not expect tourists to speak their language (as in Germany, France, Italy, Russia or Spain), so 1 out of 2 Danes speaks English. Also,...

  • 2. Nyhavn

    Nyhavn (New Harbour) is undoubtedly Copenhagen's most picturesque corner: a line of colourful houses, higgledy-piggledy built next to some quais where only vintage ships are allowed to moor. Moreover,...

  • 3. Little Mermaid

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    First things first - when in Copenhagen, you must see the statue of the Little Mermaid, called "Den Lille Havfrue" in Danish. There's no way around it, no matter if you are there with an organised bus...

  • 5. Christiania

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Before you get too dizzy by all the sweet fumes of marijuana wafting through Christiania, you do well to leave Pusher Street and explore more of the Free State. Granted, it's Pusher Street that...

  • 6. Amalienborg Palace

  • 7. Carlsberg Brewery

    4 out of 5 stars

    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...

  • 8. Rundetårn

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    As some of you will know, I love to get an overview of places I visit by climbing spires or towers. There are few cities where I haven't done this. So of course I chose to climb up Rundetårn (Round...

  • 9. Kastellet

    4 out of 5 stars

    Kastellet is one of Copenhagen's most famous sights, yet we found it to be pleasantly tourist-free. We came there in the early evening - maybe that does the trick? Anyway, Kastellet is a fortress,...

  • 10. Strøget

    The main avenue in Copenhagen is a pedestrian succession 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....

  • 13. Rosenborg Palace & Kongens Have

    Rosenborg Slot is one of Copenhagen's most beautiful buildings. Built in 1606 as a country summerhouse - I suppose at that time outside the city -, the castle is nowadays a major focal point for...

  • 14. Vor Frelser Kirke - Our Saviour’s Church

    Vor Frelsers Kirke (Our Saviour's Church) must be one of Copenhagen's most spectacular sights. It's great for people like me who love to climb up to the top of any building to get an overview of a...

  • 15. Langelinie

    Langelinie is a pier, promenade and park in central Copenhagen, and also the home of the statue of The Little Mermaid. I much prefer the Park to the Little Mermaid, infact, I thought it a very nice...

  • 16. Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

    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...

  • 17. Marble Church - Frederiks Church

    Even if it is squeezed into the metro construction site at the moment, Marmorkirken is a spectacular sight - although pretty much everything went wrong when it was built. Nicolai Eigtved, one of the...

  • 18. Canal & Harbour Tours

    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...

  • 19. Museum Erotica - CLOSED

    4 out of 5 stars

    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 :...

  • 23. Christianshavn

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Christianshavn is the part of town opposite Copenhagen's centre. Only 20 minutes away on foot, it feels like a different world - somehow more maritime and a bit like Amsterdam with all the canals and...

  • 24. Kongens Nytorv

    3.5 out of 5 stars
