9 amazing sights in Copenhagen

Amalienborg and The Little Mermaid

Take a walk at Amalienborg, preferably when the Royal Guards has a change of guard at 12 pm. Do continue along Langelinie, where all the large cruise ships dock, and head for The Little Mermaid. If your legs get tired, rest them on one of the many canal tours which you can embark at Nyhavn. Here you get to see many of the beautiful sights in Copenhagen.


Take a stroll on Strøget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets. The street was inaugurated in 1962, being the world’s longest pedestrian street at the time, and although it has long been overtaken by other big cities, there is still lots to look at. It is also here on Strøget that you will find the large classic department stores, Magasin and Illum.

Rundetårn / The Round Tower

From Storkespringvandet you can turn left to Købmagergade, which leads up to Rundetårn. Here you’ll get the most beautiful view over Copenhagen. It was Christian IV who started the construction of The Round Tower, which was completed in 1642. It was originally intended as an observation tower with a library, but today the tower with the fun snail’s walk is one of Denmark’s most visited sights.

Tivoli and Bakken

Maybe you already know Tivoli, but have you also been to the world’s oldest amusement park, Bakken? The two amusement parks are very similar regarding carousels and slides, and yet so different. While Tivoli is pretty, romantic and cozy, Bakken is fun, informal and spacious. Tivoli is located in the middle of Copenhagen, while you have to go to Klampenborg to visit Bakken. Catch the S-train from Copenhagen Central Station.

Frilandsmusset / The Open Air Museum

Just north of Copenhagen is The Open Air Museum, which is also worth a visit. For more than 100 years, the museum has gathered a very fine collection of historical Danish houses. Here you can see how Denmark has evolved from 1650 to 1950, taste traditional Danish food and listen to the fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen.

Coenhagen Zoo

Copenhagen Zoo is a great experience for both children and adults. See the big elephants, join the feeding of the sea lions or say hello to the pandas.

Nationalmuseet / The National Museum

Also visit the National Museum, where you can see some of the greatest treasures from Danish history. Visit the Viking exhibition as well as the Children’s Museum. Also visit the National Museum for the many changing exhibitions, as there is always something new to look at!

Tivoli Hotel – how cool is that!

At the Tivoli Hotel, a 15-minute walk from the Tivoli Gardens, you can stay in the themed Tivoli rooms. The Tivoli Hotel is the closest thing you get to being in Tivoli without actually being there. The rooms are all inspired by the garden, and you can choose to stay in the Garder room, which is inspired by The Tivoli Youth Gard. Drums have been transformed into tables and trumpets into bedside lamps. The Columbine Room is every princess’ dream with motifs from the Pantomine Theater on the walls. Read more about the hotel here: Tivoli Hotel

Luxury hotel with an impressive view

Close to the airport, Fields Shoppingcenter and the highway to Sweden, AC Hotel by Marriott Bella Sky Copenhagen in Ørestaden is a good choice, if you want to explore the area by car. However, you can quickly get to the center of Copenhagen. Opposite Bella Sky is Bella Center Metro Station, which takes you to Rådhuspladsen and Nyhavn in under 10 minutes. Bella Sky is a modern design hotel for guests who would like just a little bit extra. The hotel is spread over 23 floors, and there is an impressive view of Copenhagen from the large panoramic windows.

Hip hostel with indoor pool

Steel House Copenhagen, a luxury New Yorker-style hostel, is located in Vesterbro, a five-minute walk from Rådhuspladsen and Tivoli Gardens. The hip hostel has a unique metropolitan vibe and is decorated with equal parts of cool factor and raw elegance. As we don’t usually sleep in dorms, we chose the slightly more expensive solution and booked a double room on the top floor with its own terrace.

It is quite clear that Steel House attracts both families and also young people who are going around the world on a tight budget. The communal kitchen was full from morning to evening, and people had fun getting to know each other in the large common areas. Read more here: Steel House Copenhagen
