The 5 Best Things To Do in Copenhagen
- Walk the Nyhavn Canal- the most picturesque, and maybe most well known spot in Copenhagen. The canal is so cute and full of colorful buildings. We walked up and down both sides, explored the surrounding neighborhoods, popped into the little shops, and had some really yummy food. This is our number one recommended spot to see.
The Little Mermaid Statue
2. The Little Mermaid Statue- I had this on my bucket list forever and was so excited to see it. While I am sooo happy that we did go see it, it was much smaller than I thought, and maybe I over hyped it a little too much. However, I still think it is a must see thing and maybe don’t expect as much as I did.
3. Rosenborg Castle- this is one of the most unique castles I have ever been to. Each room is so intricate and beautiful and full of treasures. If you only have time to visit one castle, make this the one you see. It is so beautiful and worth the trip.
Try All The Food
4. Try all the food- on your own, or take a food tour. We did not take a food tour, but afterwards, we wish we had. We tried so many delicious things and know we missed a ton. This city is full of delicious food. If you don’t take a food tour, you can sample a lot of varieties of food at a food hall like we did.
5. Tivoli Gardens- we did not get to go inside Tivoli Gardens, but I highly recommend visiting Copenhagen when it is open. I walked all around the outside peaking in on as much as I could see. It looks magical, from all my research it is people’s favorite thing in Copenhagen and I cannot wait to go back to actually go inside and not lurk on the outside.
Copenhagen is such a fun city to visit and you can do a lot in a short amount of time. We only had two days and saw a ton. I would definitely add these best 5 things to do in Copenhagen to your list. While you are at it, add Copenhagen to your travel list if you haven’t already.
We went to Copenhagen in January. Although it was cold, we stayed nice and toasty. Here are a few of the things that kept us warm and able to stay outside all day.
Our Favorite Patagonia Jacket– well worth the price and mine has lasted 4 plus years. My mom, sister and I all wore it.
The comfiest travel boots. I have worn these through Europe, New York, Wyoming, South Dakota and throughout all the Utah winters.
