5 must do’s in Copenhagen


As you all know Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark. I recently stayed 3 days there when it was raining almost all the time. You can find my tips to survive a city trip like that here. Today we list our top 5 must do’s in Copenhagen for you.

1. tivoli park (by night)

Must do in Copenhagen tivoli park

I’m a huge fan of lights. It makes everything look more beautiful and it creates a cozy feeling. So we would recommend to go by night. We had the change to be there around Christmas time so it was even more wonderful.

2. torvehallerne (food court)

They say it is a super market and not a supermarket. Every type of food that you can think of like tapas, fish, meat, vegetables, sushi, … it’s all there! You will find more than 60 different stands. At some you can take a seat and have a quick bite to eat. I noticed that in Copenhagen they have a lot of places with organic food. We are a fan!

3. nyhavn

Everyone knows the houses in all different colors but try to take some small streets that are connect to Nyhavn. Explore the many coffee shops/bars/restaurants in this neighborhood. You’ll find the best chai latte in Copenhagen or maybe a cool interior design shop.

4. rundetaarn or round tower

You’ll find the round tower at Købmagergade 52A. The 17th century tower and observatory is the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. The observatory is encircled by an outdoor platform from which you have a magnificent view of the old part of Copenhagen. The entrance fee is around 25 DKK.

      Haha Bart, I know the feeling. I feel like my list is only getting longer instead of shorter. That’s no problem. Still so many days to do all of that. Denmark should be on your list 😉

    I visted Copenhagen last in the summer of 2014. I am sure there will be more trips to this city. I would reccomend a sightseeing boat tour, at least if you are there in the summertime. Got to see several of the sights from the canals and some info on the way from the guide 🙂

      Thank you Anita for your tip! I really want to do that another time because now it was and rainy and cold! 😀 So to stay on a boat would be that fun. Next time I’m going to try to go in spring. I guess that’s the perfect time for a boat trip!

    Stephanie! Perfect timing for me to find your blog. Planning a few days in Copenhagen in August and having nothing set yet. Added your post to my Pinterest planning board so I’ll remember your suggestions! Thanks! Sheila

    I’ve never been to Copenhagen and actually don;t know that much about it to be honest. All these things look and sound great though. Hopefully I’ll get there one day to see for myself.
