Places to Visit in Denmark

Copenhagen is a pleasure to visit, along with being the happiest city in the world, as voted by its residents. The labyrinth of canals, relaxed cycling culture, magnificent royal palaces, majestic churches, and cool Danish design, make Denmark’s capital city a delight to discover. From the iconic Little Mermaid to the colourful houses of Nyhavn, there is a wealth of sights to see and enjoy.  

Places to visit

Whether you visit Copenhagen during the summer months, enjoying leisurely long evenings in the waterside bars and restaurants or during the winter, visiting the magical Christmas markets with a glass of Gløgg, you will love the laidback vibe. Copenhagen is cycling-friendly and hiring a bike is a wonderful way to explore the sights and attractions or hop aboard a sightseeing boat for a relaxing canal tour. Highlights include Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid, the colourful houses that line the former commercial port of Nyhavn and Frederik’s Church, also known as the Marble Church. 

With a long royal tradition, there are plenty of palaces and royal regalia to explore, including Amalienborg Palace, home to the Danish royal family, the renaissance treasure Rosenborg Castle, home to the Danish Crown Jewels and Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament. The food is a highlight and one of the world’s most famous restaurants, Noma leads the fine dining scene. Other culinary highlights include the ‘sausage wagons,’ found throughout the city serving up Danish hot dogs, Danish sandwiches, smørrebrød, and the ubiquitous Danish pastries.
