Regardless of the season, Copenhagen is always a great city trip full of sightseeing. With its great array of cultural, architectural and historical landmarks, it poses a fun getaway destination. Let us show you our favourite attractions that need to be on your itinerary for an unforgettable experience in the city of fairy tales.
A visit to Copenhagen is not complete without going to the iconic and probably most famous attraction in Copenhagen: The Tivoli Gardens Amusement Park. No matter what time of year you visit, Tivoli is always a great choice. You can find the beautiful gardens and multiple fun rides right in the heart of Copenhagen.
It’s actually the second oldest amusement park in Europe and attracts many visitors for its thrilling roller coaster and stunning views of Copenhagen from the carousel Star Flyer.
Copenhagen is one of the cycling capitals of the world. So it's fun to explore the city on two wheels, just like the locals do.
Plus, you won't break a sweat on a guided tour with Fatbike Tours, because the e-bike makes this one of the most relaxing tours in the whole city. Forget about the e-bikes you might remember from your grandma. Knaap's e-bikes stand out for their rugged urban design. With their army green color and 20 inch tires (which are 20 cm thick), they are sure to catch some eyes on the road.
Even if you take it easy on the tour to see all the sights, the bikes can go up to 25 km/h without any engine noise disrupting your tour. Get in the saddle and discover Copenhagen with this guided e-bike tour.
See Copenhagen from above and immerse yourself in 800 years of Danish history. Christiansborg Castle is located on Slotsholmen Island and is both a royal palace and the seat of the Danish government.
Step into the shoes of the Danish royals who once lived here and explore the well-preserved interiors. During your visit to Christiansborg Castle, you can either discover the royal rooms and ruins on your own or join a guided tour. Should you prefer to explore the different parts of the palace on your own we recommend using the Useeum app.
The highlight of the palace is the tower with its 360-degree view over the city. On a clear day, you can even see Malmö from up there. By the way, access to the tower is free, though there may be some queues. There is also a restaurant at the top, which you should probably book in advance to secure a seat.
The palace is really a must-see if you want to immerse yourself in Danish history and enjoy a good meal with a beautiful view.
Also close to the Tivoli Gardens is the National Museum of Denmark. If you’re into museums, this is a must-see when you are visiting Copenhagen.
