Things to do in Copenhagen
As the home of the famous Hans Christian Andersen, there are a plethora of things to do in Copenhagen. One of the biggest attractions is The Little Mermaid, seek out its location along the Langelinie Promenade and take a sneaky selfie. There is also the Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tale House, a great place to visit if you’ve got kids in tow. The Round Tower is also a port of call on the Andersen tour, as it was the place he found most of his inspiration - does Rapunzel spring to mind, anyone?
Copenhagen has an amazing array of great hotels, each more stylish than the next with prices to suit all pockets. The renowned Danish eye for design is everywhere; from the tableware to trendy room décor, everything looks cool in Copenhagen. You’ll open your window to even prettier sights when staying in the heart of the city too.
Possibly the most iconic image of the city is that of its colourful 17th century harbour, Nyhavn. Home to a selection of hotels, each one offers easy access to the city highlights while also boasting a prime waterfront location. If you’re looking to lap up luxury, hotels in Østerbro will see you within touching distance of Copenhagen’s top designer shopping hotspot while the uber cool Christiania is the place for artsy types. As a pedestrianized neighbourhood with eye-catching design at every turn, Christiania provides holiday-makers with a unique experience. When it comes to choosing accommodation, Copenhagen city breaks leave you spoilt for choice.
Fall for Copenhagen’s Charm
Oozing Scandinavian charm, a stroll along the winding cobbled streets is a delight for the senses. Bicycle bells, tram ‘tring-trings’ and the smell of freshly baked Danish pastries will set the scene for memorable Copenhagen holidays. Tour the Rosenborg Castle, take a seat in the stunning Concert Hall or enjoy a day out at the Dyrehavsbakken, the world’s oldest theme park. In a city that effortlessly blends old and new, there’s a lot to experience.
Set on a series of islands, you are never far from a waterfront terrace with beautiful views across the bay. This is a great city to explore on foot, but with such a reliable transport system you will never have to walk too far on Copenhagen city breaks. With a fantastic cycling system, you can also take a leaf out of the local’s book and take a scenic bike ride through the city. This city is perfect for a romantic city break, a great adventure with friends or, as the home of Lego, a wonderful destination for the kids. Summer sees the locals take to the buzzing outdoor bars and restaurants with open air concerts in the Tivoli Gardens, while winter is all about wrapping up warm and enjoying that renowned Danish hospitality. Copenhagen city breaks are wonderful at any time of the year!
