Things to do in Copenhagen
1)Photograph the little Mermaid
2)Watch the changing of guard at Amalienborg
The Amalienborg Palace is a former royal palace that is now a museum and that alone makes it worth a visit. However, if you can time your trip well, you can also witness the changing of the guards ceremony that takes place outside.
At 11:30 on the dot every day the guards leave the Rosenborg Castle and march to the Amalienborg Palace for the ceremony at 12 pm sharp.
3)Visit colorful Nyhavn
If you were to close your eyes and conjure up a picture of Copenhagen in your head, it would probably look a lot like Nyhavn. This gorgeous waterfront dates back to the 17th century and features an iconic row of multi-colored houses and wooden houses that never move place – contrary to the tourist boats.
All the former trading buildings and warehouses have been converted into restaurants, bars, and cafes. Especially when the weather is nice, and everybody wants to sit outside, a spot on the many terraces is hard to find. You might want to be careful, though, as these can be expensive tourist traps.
4) Go shopping at stroget
Running through the heart of Copenhagen is Stroget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets and the city’s shopping hub. Along this famous street, you’ll find everything from Gucci and Mulberry at one end of the spectrum, to Zara and H&M at the other end.
If your budget is really tight, even window shopping with a Danish pastry in hand makes for a fun activity here.
Make sure to walk through Stroget until you reach the end and the Radhuspladsen or city hall square.
5)Fun at Tivoli Garden
The Tivoli Gardens are about the closest thing to Disneyland you’ll find in the Danish capital. This huge park boasts dozens of rides, shops, restaurants, performance venues, and natural spaces.
There is also a Tivoli Food Hall, comprising a range of street food stalls from around the world. Entrance is a little steep at over €50 (450DKK), but this includes unlimited rides and you can stay all day.
6)Enjoy a canal tour
If you get tired of walking the streets of Copenhagen, why not experience the city from a different perspective. Canal tours run daily and are conducted in English, Danish, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian among other languages.
The tour only takes an hour, but you’ll see a whole host of the city’s famous sites, such as the Black Diamond Library, the Little Mermaid statue, and the Christiansborg Palace.
It was fun to be in denmark for 7 days and seeing danish culture and yes don’t forget to taste danish food it is very tasty and I really loved it..
