Copenhagen

Denmark

The oldest capital of Scandinavia, named as a “Capital of Northern Europe”, Copenhagen is the biggest city in Scandinavia.

Copenhagen is a kingdom of fairytales, princesses and mermaids. It is a tech city of the 21st century that loves and fully preserves its historical heritage.

For more than 15 years, Øresund bridge has connected Copenhagen with the Swedish town of Malmø. Crossing this bridge by train or car gives you an absolutely unforgettable experience. And, at the same time, the bridge gives you an opportunity to compare two very different countries and nations in one day; it only takes about 15 minutes to cross the bridge and get to know two Scandinavian kingdoms: Denmark and Sweden.

Wonderful Copenhagen Segway

Copenhagen Segway tour is an amazing thing to do with your friends or family. Jump on a Segway and glide smoothly and silently through the streets of Copenhagen at 22 km/h (13 mph) only 20 cm (8 inches) above the ground.

You can choose, for example, the most popular classic Segway tour. From Fisketorvet, you will cross the Bryggebridge towards Islands Brygge. You ride along the harbour and across a few bridges as you head for the parliament building, Christiansborg. From there, you ride via Nyhavn towards Amalienborg Palace, where you can try to get a glimpse of the Royal Family. From Amalienborg Palace, you head towards The Little Mermaid. On the return you ride along the harbour itself. The ride offers exceptional views of Copenhagen Opera, Skuespillerhuset, and the Royal Library – The Black Diamond.

Rundtaarn

Visit Rundtaarn (Round Tower), the oldest astronomical observatory in Copenhagen, with the best views of the old city at the top. It was the highest building in the city during the 17th century and is mentioned in Andersen’s tales.

Tivoli City Park

Go to Tivoli City Park, one of the oldest and largest amusement parks in Europe, first opened in 1843.

Copenhagen Boat tour

Copenhagen is built on sea channels and nowadays, an hour’s city tour by boat is an absolute must. You will see all the Copenhagen places of interest from the sea and get the best impression of the historical and cultural sites.

Amalienborg Castle

You have to be at Amalienborg Castle exactly at noon if you want to see the fabulous changing of the royal guard. The Castle is a residence of the Danish Royal Family and, if you are lucky and the Queen is in Copenhagen at the same time as you, the changing of the guard will be accompanied by an orchestra.

Rosenborg Castle & Gardens

This castle, built in the Dutch Renaissance style in the early 17th century, is the only one in Denmark that has never been burnt and rebuilt. The Rosenborg Castle Garden is the country’s oldest royal garden and the most popular place to rest for young inhabitants of the city.

Strøget

Strøget is one of the longest pedestrian streets in the world, with beautiful old houses and a special Danish atmosphere.

Nyhavn canal

The canal features colourful houses from the 17th and 18th centuries, which were turned into lively restaurants and bars. This is the place where H.C. Andersen wrote all his famous fairy tales.

Copenhagen Strand Hotel

Copenhagen Strand Hotel has an excellent location on the waterfront. We believe this hotel gives you the best value for money. It’s very close to many sites and has easy access to the public transport, which is ideal for self-exploration around Copenhagen.
