Copenhagen Travel Guide

The land of vikings, cold winters, and charming streets -- Denmark’s capital city is calling your name. Copenhagen, set along the water just opposite Malmo Sweden, has a population of over 770,000 residents with millions more coming to visit the magnificent city each year.

Things to Do in Copenhagen

While in Copenhagen, visit Tivoli Gardens, one of Copenhagen’s most famous sites. Thrill seekers will love the roller coasters and rides, kids will love the carousels and activities, and even those who don’t like rides will find beauty and fun in Tivoli Gardens. The Little Mermaid Statue is perhaps Copenhagen’s most famous site, on the Langelinie Promenade. The statue is a tribute to Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. Spend a day at Nationalmuseet, Denmark’s national museum, to learn about the country’s history, or visit Christiansborg Palace, the center of Danish politics.

Shop til you drop in Stroget, the street with all the high end stores, while the unique, independent shops line the cobblestone streets of Old City. You can’t go to Copenhagen without visiting Nyhavn, the colorful harbor area of the city. Hans Christian Andersen lived in three different homes along the canal, and the vibrant buildings hold many cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Danes tend to be private, courteous, and like to follow the rules. They will likely be friendly and helpful, but they tend not to like small talk or trivial conversations.

Best Time to Visit Copenhagen

The best time to visit the city is in the summer, when the winter cold has finally left. Book your trip between May and September, but keep in mind that July and August are peak months.
