Also considered one of the world’s most environmentally friendly cities, Copenhagen has an abundance of beautiful parks, lakes, and beaches. Additionally, visitors will enjoy world-class museums, restaurants, and shopping. Following are just a few suggestions for your visit to Copenhagen:

Parks: Copenhagen is a green city with many big and small parks. King’s Garden, the garden of Rosenborg Castle, is the oldest and most visited park in Copenhagen. Every year it hosts more than 2.5 million visitors and in the summer months it is packed with sunbathers, picnickers, and ballplayers.

Beaches: In and around Copenhagen, you are never far from a beach. Miles of sandy beaches are within 30 minutes of bicycling from the city centre. The beaches are supplemented by a system of Harbour Baths along the Copenhagen waterfront.

Museums: Copenhagen has a wide array of museums of international standard. The National Museum, Nationalmuseet, is Denmark’s largest museum of Aachaeology and cultural history, comprising the histories of Danish and foreign cultures alike. The National Gallery – “Statens Museum for Kunst” – is Denmark’s national art museum and contains collections dating from 12th century and all the way up to present day artists. Among artists represented in the collections are Rubens, Rembrandt, Picasso, Braque, Léger, Matisse and Emil Nolde.

Other Attractions in Copenhagen:

Nyhavn Canal is known as the “longest bar in Scandinavia” because the pretty pastel-painted old townhouses that line the canal are fronted with numerous restaurants, pubs and cafes, full of action and entertainment 24 hours a day.

Rosenborg Castle was designed by King Christian IV and served as his home until he died in 1648. Today the Castle is an important cultural institution, acting as a public museum detailing the history of Denmark’s royal family.

The Little Mermaid, basking on a rock at the Langelinie harbour, is one of Denmark’s biggest tourist attractions. The sculpture was put up in 1913, and over a million people visit the mermaid every year.

Dining in Copenhagen:

Zeleste is a quality dining experience and offers an extensive menu of freshly prepared dishes like Lobster, Summer Deer, Argentine Striploin, and fresh fish from the North Sea.

Kong Hans Kaelder is located in the oldest building in Copenhagen. Gothic arches, constructed more than half a millennium ago, lend the restaurant its medieval atmosphere. Try their Oysters Label Rouge with parsley oil, rye croutons, and horseradish mayonnaise or the Tenderloin of Danish Beef served with Sauce Béarnaise and Moutarde Violette.

Era Ora is uniquely Italian with a menu that reflects what is fresh and in-season, both locally and from Italy. While you’ll want to experience the traditional Danish delights while in Copenhagen, restaurants like Era Ora are hard to pass up.

Københavner Cafeen works hard to convey a sense of old-time Denmark. Here you can enjoy authentically prepared Danish favorites. A specialty of the house is the Københavner platte, which features several preparations of herring, marinated salmon, shrimp, meatballs, fresh vegetables, and fresh-baked, roughly textured bread with butter.

Fregatten offers traditional Danish and International cuisine. The restaurant is a miniature replica of a ship that was built in the 1740’s and sits on a freshwater lake in the middle of Tivoli Gardens.
