Packed with endless points of interest, we’ll only reveal you a few ones so you can find out the rest on your own. Are you ready?
Places to see in Copenhagen
- Tivoli Park. Very close to the City Hall Square or Rådhuspladsen, it is the oldest amusement park in Europe. At its best by night, the park is located in the heart of the city to offer unique experiences with arts and music activities. Different seasons call for different activities so in summer, there are fireworks twice a week and in winter the incredibly beautiful gardens open their doors with almost half a million fresh flowers. The best part is that it’s only 6 euros for children up to 11 and 12 euros for over 12 year-olds.
- Stroget. This is the longest pedestrian street in the world, starting at City Hall Square up to the wonderful Kongens Nytorv Square.
- National Museum. This is the state museum, the most important in the country. It displays artworks from Prehistoric times up to now coming from a number of countries. There is free entry from Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
- Amalienborg Palace. This is, of course, the home of the royal family over the winter. The complex consists of four palaces of similar features gathering around a statue of Frederick V. These buildings were inhabited by noblemen who gradually went away. Unfortunately, only two palaces can be visited, those called the “guest residence”. The entry is 11 euros, with discounts for groups. Guided visits are on weekends, from 1pm to 2:30pm.
- Kronborg Castle. Hamlet vibes all over the place. We all know the sublime Shakespearian work featuring the Danish prince. Well, the playwright was inspired by this castle which is, hands down, a must visit. Near Copenhagen, located in the small town of Helsinger, it is definitely worth to get there to see the building that witnessed this timeless Shakespearian drama. It opens May to September from 10:30am to 5pm; in October from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 4pm, November to March from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 3pm and April from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 4pm. If you get there as a couple, you’ll only pay 10 euros per person.
