The list of things to do in Copenhagen expands far beyond taking a picture with The Little Mermaid or climbing to the top of The Round Tower for sweeping views of the city. To experience the old-fashioned charm of the city and discover its rich heritage, take a stroll along the picturesque canal of Nyhavn. In the fairytale setting of the elegant Rosenborg Castle, you can see a collection of Danish crown jewels and regalia, including a coronation carpet and the throne chair of Denmark. Featuring flower gardens, food pavilions, and open-air shows in addition to traditional amusement rides and carnival games, Tivoli Gardens is a great destination to visit when traveling with kids.

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.
