Copenhagen Travel Guide

  • Copenhagen is all about the cool, the colourful and the classic. You’ll find it in its grand palaces bursting with royal regalia. At its iconic multicoloured houses along the Nyhavn canal. In its traditional dishes that are tough to pronounce but delicious to eat—I’m talking about you, smorrebrod.

    Yes, you’ll come curious to Copenhagen and leave wanting more.

Discover Copenhagen

  • Tivoli Gardens

    You know you’re in for a mythical universe if it’s where Walt Disney himself found inspiration. You’ll fall in love with everything the Tivoli Gardens amusement park has to offer, and what it has to offer is Vertigo, a ride that turns you upside down at 100 kilometres an hour; a wooden roller coaster dating from 1914; and the ominous-sounding virtual-reality ride The Demon, which will have you facing fire-spewing dragons.

  • Nyhavn

    See Copenhagen’s true colours at the pastel-hued waterfront along the Nyhavn canal. Can you spot the house where Hans Christian Andersen wrote some of his beloved fairy tales? (Psst, it’s No. 20.) Hop on a boat and set off on a canal tour to see The Little Mermaid waiting for you atop a rock. Then grab a quick bite at one of the many restaurants lining the harbour—smorrebrod open-faced sandwich, anyone?

  • The Little Mermaid

    Hop on a boat at Nyhavn for a canal tour of Copenhagen. At Langelinje Pier, you’ll find the iconic sculpture of The Little Mermaid, dating from 1913. It was inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale about (take a moment to reach for a tissue) a mermaid who gives up everything to be with her handsome prince on land. Oh, Copenhagen, you’re so romantic.

  • Culture

    Copenhagen drips with cultural riches and yet is oh-so cool about it. See the changing of the Royal Guard at Amalienborg Palace, where Denmark’s royal family still resides. Take a peek at 400-year-old royal art treasures at Rosenborg Castle, harbouring the crown jewels and royal regalia. Listen to Denmark’s sonic cultural legacy at the state-of-the-art Copenhagen Opera House. Travel all the way back to the Stone Age at the National Museum of Denmark. And marvel at the Marble Church (Marmorkirken) whose iconic copper green dome dominates Copenhagen’s skyline.
