Take a stroll along the pier and marina at Langelinie and browse the shops, enjoy an ice cream or take a break at one of the many cosy cafés.
If you’re in the city during the summer head to Tivoli Friday Rock where you can enjoy local bands and artists at free concerts every Friday or cool off at Nyhavn where the inner harbour has become a swimming mecca for locals.
Take in the architecture around the harbour where many of the houses lining the quays were the homes of prominent artists including Hans Christian Andersen who used to live at several addresses in this area.
There is more fantastic architecture and history to enjoy in Copenhagen, so why not get a ticket and visit the museums of both the Rosenborg Castle and Amalienborg Castle. The Rosenborg Castle museum has been open since 1838 and holds the Danish Crown Jewels, the King’s coronation chair and the throne of the Queens. For a more modern take on design head along to The Danish Museum of Art & Design where there is an eclectic permanent collection and several exhibitions throughout the year.
Head to Norrebro for a taste of some local cafes and galleries around the main square and stay out late around Sankt Hans Torv where you can dance the night away. Best of all you can hop on the Metro at any time of the day or night so you can really enjoy all that Copenhagen has to offer.
There are plenty of attractions in Copenhagen to keep you very busy. For up to date listings of what's in season and open check out the Visit Copenhagen website or download this free Copenhagen Guide.
