Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.

  • Great view and the tower is open until​late due to the restaurant, so skip the queue and arrive at about 7pm and you will have the viewing deck almost to yourself. Unless you like spending time in queues, in which case,come earlier. Went here with visitors before we went to dinner, lovely way to end their visit to Copenhagen
  • First of all, note that Google shows only The Tower, which is an attraction and a wonderful view of Copenhagen. However, the restaurant inside the tower, Bojesen i Tårnet, is the subject of this review. Ensconced in the tower (hence, the “Tårnet” in the name) between the Danish Royal Palace and the Danish Parliament, Bojesen i Tårnet delivers a wonderful dining experience on so many levels – from the drinks, food, and service to the architectural setting in the tower and the views from the top. Make your reservation, but arrive about 15-30 minutes early so that you can go through security screening (there is an express line for those people with dinner reservations, as opposed to tourists who are just going to see the tower itself) and for time to enjoy the view from the tower before entering the restaurant. From the tower, you’ll get a 360-degree view of Copenhagen. Prior to the opening of the restaurant, the tower had been used to store various statues and artifacts, some of which are used to decorate the dining rooms. For example, there are two large lion sculptures “watching over” the dining area. Tables and chairs are simple and modern, letting the soaring brick walls of and stairway to the tower provide a magnificent atmosphere for the restaurant. The cocktail, beer, and wine list is excellent, and we can recommend the gin with citrus-and-rose-infused tonic to start! We decided on dining from the prix fixe menu. The soup was poached cod, oyster emulsion, radishes, herbs, and dill oil. I was surprised by how green the soup itself was, but it provided a visual “pop” for an astoundingly good dish. The second course featured a thin slice of Danish cheese (don't ask me to spell or pronounce it), crispy rye flakes, pickled and fresh herbs, and horseradish creme. One of the herbs grows wild in many rural Danish home yards, apparently, so we joked that these herbs were the most delicious lawn clippings we had ever eaten. Honestly, though, this dish was mouth-wateringly delicious. For the main course, we had rump steak (very tender and wonderfully rare), garlic confit, charred broccoli and onions, and whey sauce with ramsons (the bulb root of a broad-leaved garlic). The steak was cooked perfectly to a medium-rare stage, and the presentation was eye-catching. There were three cheeses with this course, but I dug in before taking notes on the name of the first cheese, but the second two were Camembert and a Danish blue. The cheeses were served with a cracker that was topped with dried fruits and seeds. Dessert was a thin layer of chocolate cake, topped with chocolate mousse, a chocolate shell, blueberry sorbet, and dried raspberry hearts speared with a chocolate "arrow." From start to finish, we were delighted at every course, as well as being impressed by the professional and knowledgeable servers. Adding in the glorious architecture and views makes Bojesen i Tårnet one of my top 50 favorite restaurants globally.
  • The highest point in Copenhagen and you can visit it for free. Be prepared for a long wait time as the elevators was slow and can only carry a few people
  • A super view from the middle of Copenhagen. Waiting and security might take a while so it's not children friendly. The tower is open so it can be quite windy. But the view is just stellar. You get four windows to look from.
  • Great location, so cool to eat up in the tower. A bit of a tourist destination, but too food was good and hard to beat the view.
