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 I list my top 5 must do’s in Copenhagen for you.
1. tivoli park (by night)
I’m a huge fan of lights. It makes everything look more beautiful and it creates a cozy feeling. So I would recommend to go by night. I 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. I’m a fan!
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.
5. parks / gardens
There are a lot of hidden treasures in Copenhagen. Parks and gardens are one of them. Go for a stroll in go for a stroll in the King’s Garden. There is even a botanical garden. The parks and gardens are even in winter perfect for a walk in the park.
