Why you should go
Copenhagen is the most populous city in all of Denmark, and it’s no surprise; the city is bursting with places to go and things to see. Tivoli Gardens, one of the most visited theme parks in Europe, can’t be missed if you’re a thrill-seeker! The world-famous Little Mermaid statue (Den Lille Havfrue), located in Langelinie, is based on the fairy-tale by Christian Anderson and is definitely worth a photo if you’re passing by. For the shopaholics amongst us, make sure you pop down to Strøget – it is one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe, not to mention the city’s biggest and most popular shopping region. You’ll find boutiques including Gucci, Max Mara, Prada and Mulberry, so prepare for the spending!
For the culture vultures out there, Copenhagen is littered with museums and galleries – so we recommend planning which ones you would like to see before your visit! The National Museum of Denmark (Nationalmuseet) is renowned as one of Europe's finest museums, showcasing an incredible spectrum of the history of Denmark. If you visit Rosenborg Castle, you will be able to see how the royal family lived during the Dutch Renaissance – and don’t forget to check out the crown jewels!
Foodies won’t be disappointed with the array of restaurants, bistros, cafes and other eateries available in Copenhagen. Try the city’s famous smørrebrød (mouth-watering open sandwiches), hindbærsnitter (delicious raspberry pastries) and all the street food you can get your hands on. Also, if you are on a hen do or stag do, you simply cannot miss the Carlsberg Brewery, offering tours which end with a ride in a horse-drawn carriage and two complimentary beers! What’s not to love?!

Copenhagen is at its peak during late spring, summer and early autumn, especially if you are looking for incredible weather and cafes and bars spilling out onto the streets to enjoy the sunshine.
