About Copenhagen

The Ultimate Guide to Copenhagen: Your Complete Travel Guide
The lovely city of Copenhagen is a must see for any traveler, and it’s no wonder why! With its famous Little Mermaid statue, cobblestone streets, and historical architecture, this Danish city is brimming with things to see.

The famous Copenhagen Castle is located in the city center and is so well preserved that it was used as a filming location for both ‘Hamlet’ and ‘Matilda.’ This castle has had a fascinating history. It was first built in 1167, but then reconstructed in 1647 after the Swedish attack of Copenhagen. The castle is not only historically significant to Denmark, but also to Europe.

In addition to its rich history, the castle offers incredible views of the city and harbor below.

Tivoli Gardens is a famous amusement park in Copenhagen, and it’s not hard to see why. The park features a variety of rides, shops and restaurants (including the largest roller coaster in Northern Europe). A day at Tivoli Gardens is enough to make your mouth water!

One of the best ways to experience Copenhagen is by getting around on a bike. The city has some of the most bike-friendly cities in the world, with over 450 kilometers of bike paths for pedestrians and bikers. One popular option is renting a bike from one of the many bike rental companies located in the city, like Copenhagen City Cykel. They have 27 departure points and you can pick-up a bike at any of them and return it at another. Another popular way to get around Copenhagen is using a City Pass where you can explore the city’s main attractions, like Tivoli Gardens, while using public transportation.

One of the most iconic sites in Copenhagen, the Little Mermaid statue is a must see. It was created by Edvard Eriksen and erected in 1913. This statue is made of bronze, and it sits on a rock shaped like a seashell.

The statue’s face is beautiful and haunting. She has long hair that flows down her back and she holds both hands out toward the water as if to long for something lost. Her eyes are closed, but you can still see that she has a sultry expression on her face. The statue is believed to represent the tragically beautiful Ariel from Disney’s film The Little Mermaid, which tells the story of Ariel longing for human legs so she can walk on land with her love Prince Eric.

Copenhagen may be known for its amazing sights, but that doesn’t mean that the city is all business. There are plenty of culinary delights to be enjoyed along your travels. One such delight is the world’s best cupcakes in Viborg, a historic Danish town about an hour outside of Copenhagen.

The world’s best cupcakes in Viborg can be found at a cafe called “Hjemmebagteri og Kaffebar Viborg.” While you might not find the typical chocolate or vanilla flavors here, these specialty cupcakes come with flavors like salty caramel and lime-thyme, or smoked cardamom and thyme!

Nyhavn River is a great place to visit to get a taste of Copenhagen’s past. This river is filled with impressive buildings, bridges, and boats. It is also home to the world’s oldest working dry dock. This is a must-visit for anyone that visits Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is a foodie’s dream. It houses the world’s best restaurants, and the locals are known for their love of fresh seafood and game. If you want to try the local delicacies, head to a smørrebrød bar (translation: open-faced sandwich) and order an open-faced sandwich with rye bread, raw salmon, shrimp, pickles, egg yolk and capers.

If you need some caffeine to kick start your day, head over to Cafe Hvidovre on Nørrebrogade. They brew some of the best coffee in Copenhagen and offer delicious pastries as well.

And if you’re not big on meat dishes or seafood, don’t fret! You can find plenty of vegetarian options on menus across Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is known as the “City of Cyclists” and one of the best things to do is a scenic bike tour. You can take a cycling tour around Copenhagen with one of the many bicycle rental companies located throughout the city.

One of the most romantic ways to explore Copenhagen by night is on a yacht. You’ll be able to take in the stunning views along the waterfront while enjoying a delicious dinner with your loved one. To make the experience even more memorable, consider adding champagne and flowers to your booking.
