Things to Do in Copenhagen
- Start the day with a delicious Danish pastry at Lagkagehuset, one of Copenhagen's favourite bakeries.
- Spend a morning by the harbour and go for a stroll around Downtown Copenhagen, the city's oldest district. With its narrow, cobbled streets, this part of town is popular among locals, tourists and street artists alike. Furthermore, it's where you'll find the famous Strøget Street, the largest shopping street in Europe.
- In addition to being a prime shopping spot, the harbour is also home to one of Denmark's most famous landmarks, The Little Mermaid statue, erected in memory of legendary fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen.
- A stone's throw away from Strøget Street is The National Museum of Denmark (Nationalmuseet), the country's largest museum dedicated to cultural history. The museum houses an impressive collection of artefacts from the Viking Age.
- For art-lovers, a visit to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art is an absolute must. Located directly on the awe-inspiring shore of the Øresund Sound, 22 miles north of Copenhagen, it is Denmark's most-visited museum.
- The Rundetårn (Round Tower) offers magnificent views of the old Copenhagen. Built in the 17th-century, the tower is the oldest functioning astronomical observatory in Europe.
- A visit to Copenhagen Zoo is a great option for an afternoon with the family. The zoo's new and unique facility for polar bears, seals and seabirds, The Arctic Ring, allows visitors to get very close to these fascinating creatures above and below the water surface.
- Easily accessible by foot, bike and public transport, The Blue Planet is Northern Europe's largest aquarium. Home to more than 20,000 species of animals, this impressive building resembles a whirlpool when seen from above.
- Fancy a day trip? Make your way to Kronborg Castle, one of the best-known examples of Renaissance architecture in Europe. Located in Elsinore, Øresund, 30 miles away from Copehagen, this magnificent building was immortalised by Shakespeare as the setting of Hamlet.
- Finish the day off with a relaxed wander through Nyhavn. Especially in the summer, it's the perfect backdrop for a cosy dinner. Alternatively, you can do as the locals do – chill out by the quayside while sipping a cold beer.
Shopping in Copenhagen
What the Danish capital's shopping district lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in variety and quality. Copenhagen shopping is made easy by the fact that the centre of the city is chock-full of inspired, independent shops, exclusive boutiques, as well as numerous grand department stores.
Shopping at Strøget
Copenhagen's main shopping area can be found on Strøget Street, Europe's longest pedestrian street, and the surrounding streets. From popular chains like H&M to the impressive department store, Illum, and the beautiful silver, porcelain and glassware at Amagertorv, Strøget offers something for everyone.
Eating in Copenhagen
Though the Danish culinary scene wasn't exactly the talk of the town ten years ago, Copenhagen is quickly becoming one of the gastronomic capitals of the world. From Michelin-starred eateries to gourmet hot dog joints, Copenhagen offers a wealth of options.
Nordic gastronomy in Copenhagen
The Danish capital is famous for New Nordic cuisine, popularised in recent years by noma, a left-field restaurant that topped San Pellegrino's renowned World's 50 Best Restaurants list for three consecutive years. Home to more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other Nordic country, Copenhagen truly is a foodie's paradise.
Hot dogs in Copenhagen
Denmark is well-known for its pork and reportedly has more pigs than it does people. There are many wonderful places to eat in Copenhagen, including the gourmet hot dog vendor next to Andersen Bakery (Bernstorffsgade 5). We highly recommend ordering the famous Grand Danois – organic pork sausage that's served with Bornholm mustard and a Chanterelle sauce.
Business hours: Monday – Thursday from 10:00 to 18:00, Friday from 10:00 to 19:00, Saturday from 10:00 to 16:00 and Sunday from 12:00 to 16:00
Copenhagen is a highly pedestrian- and bike-friendly city. In case you don't fancy walking or cycling, the public transport system offers a clean, fast and efficient way of getting around the Danish capital.
Cyclists in Copenhagen can sometimes be fast and reckless, so it's important to keep an eye out when crossing the street. If you choose to get around Copenhagen by bike, remember to signal and mind the traffic.
Tipping in restaurants isn't necessary as tips are already included in the final bill.
