Denmark has been described as having some of the happiest people in the world, with Copenhagen being one of the world’s most liveable cities. Biking is a huge part of Copenhagen culture and whether you have a cheap hotel on the outskirts of the city, a hotel near the airport, or a hotel right in the city centre, bikes can get you anywhere you need to go. During a visit to Copenhagen, there are elements of fairy tales among the various parks, palaces, and cobblestone streets as well as modern elements of a world-class city.
Copenhagen is a place with something for everyone, whether you are looking for something inside or outside. One of the first things people think about when they think of Copenhagen is the Little Mermaid, Den Lille Havfrue . No trip to the city is complete without finding the statue of her. After thinking about her quiet gaze as she looks longingly at the sea, you can visit the nearby Kastellet. This star-shaped fortress built in the 17th century features a museum and various events throughout the year. And while you are in the area, you can also see Gefion Fountain, which is both a wishing well and the largest monument in Copenhagen. Another fun activity is a trip to Tivoli Gardens. This amusement park is one of the most visited in Europe and in the world. You could spend the day here enjoying its almost 40 rides and attractions. If you are willing to travel out of the city a bit, Dyrehavsbakken is another great amusement park in the area. It features over 30 rides and has the distinction of being the oldest operating amusement park in the world. Other fun outdoors activities are trips to the Open Air Museum, one of the oldest and biggest in the world, the Copenhagen Zoo, and the Botanical Gardens. There are over 3,000 animals to enjoy at the zoo!
While the British Royal Family is well-known around the world, Denmark also has its own royal family and Copenhagen is the best place in Denmark to learn how the Danish royalty live. After you enjoy your stay in your comfortable cheap hotel at night, during the day you can visit the places of the richest in Denmark. Christiansborg Palace contains many government institutions but is also used by the royal family. Here you can find The Queen’s Tapestries, the ruins of various castles underneath the palace, the highest tower in Copenhagen, and the Royal Stables. Rosenborg Castle, built in 1606 in the Dutch renaissance style, holds the royal art collection and the Crown Jewels. The castle is also famous for its beautiful Renaissance gardens called Kongens Have . Amalienborg Palace is the place to learn about royal history and see what royal life looks like nowadays, as some of the royal family still live there. To round out your royal tour, you can also visit Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle for a taste of how medieval royalty lived.
For a little fun indoors, you can visit the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, the National Aquarium Denmark, the Zoological Museum, and the Geological Museum. For a little art, there are the ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, and the National Gallery of Denmark. The National Gallery houses almost 9,000 paintings and sculptures from all over the world dating back to the 14th century. And if history is your thing, you can take a trip to the National Museum to learn more about Denmark, from the Stone Age to the present. They also have exhibits on many other cultures around the world. There are museums and other fun things to do everywhere in Copenhagen, so get a hotel anywhere and you will be close to something great! The Danish Museum of Art & Design is for those who are serious about the topics as they have the largest library for design in Scandinavia.
After a long day of exploring and museum hopping, there are many areas in Copenhagen to relax and enjoy some food. Finding great food near your hotel, whether it is at the airport or in the city centre, is easy with so many great food spots. In Nyhavn, you can sit along the water with a beer or head to a nice restaurant to unwind. This is an iconic spot in Copenhagen as you can walk along the brightly-coloured 17th-century townhouses. Strøget is one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets. There you can find various shops and cafes to sit and have something to eat or drink. At the end of the street is Kongens Nytorv , The King’s New Square. It is the largest square in the city and offers views of the Royal Danish Theatre, the Charlottenborg Palace, the Thott Mansion, the Hotel D'Angleterre and the Magasin du Nord. For some famous Danish beer, you can head to Visit Carlsberg, which has a visitor centre and information about how the beer is made. For something a little different, you can head to Christiana. This part of Copenhagen was founded by a group of hippies in 1971 and still carries on with that alternative vibe. After a long day, you can take a break at Rundetaarn, the round tower, to get a few of the stars. Built in the 17th century, this is the oldest working observatory in Europe.
