Wondering what to see and do in Copenhagen? Copenhagen is a big city, and it has lots of features, areas, and points of interest. Which you should see or what you should focus on depends entirely on what kind of interest you have. However, to narrow it down to the things (we think) you really need to see, we made you a checklist of what the city is most known for.
– Nyhavn, the colourful line of buildings overlooking the canal. This area has been popular since day one, and you’ll totally understand why once you arrive. The cafés and restaurants lined up on the cobblestoned streets, the people strolling, seamen working on their boats…
– The public squares and streets! Kungens Nytorv, Sankt Annæ Plads, and Rådhuspladsen are all car-free squares situated in the middle of the city.
– Kongens Have (the King’s Garden). The park linked to Rosenborg Castle is a fantastic place to stroll or have a picnic during Summer.
– Tivoli Gardens, because regardless of the season and weather, this amusement park is truly a magical wonderland.
