The City of Smiles, Århus (or Aarhus as it’s now officially known) has been around longer than any other Scandinavian city, so has had plenty of time to accumulate attractions and eateries. Its vibrant music scene and nightlife are popular with Denmark’s largest student population, and the University Park features the excellent Steno Museum and Natural History Museum.

Best places to see in Denmark

Rosenborg Castle
Landmarks
Christian IV was quite some guy. Warrior, art-lover, epicurean, father of twenty-four children... This archetypal Renaissance king truly lived life to the fullest. He spent his summers in lavish Rosenborg Castle, and “opulent” doesn’t do it justice. Stunningly intricate crown jewels? Check. Narwhal-tusk throne surrounded by golden lions? Check. Now there’s a king of bling!
Accommodation near Rosenborg Castle
Christiansborg
Landmarks
The corridors of power. This palace has been the seat of Danish sovereignty since it was first erected in the 12th century. It’s had various reincarnations since then, but you can still see some of those old ruins in a spooky underground chamber. Into tapestries? Pop on those plastic shoe covers and tiptoe around. Horse lover? Trot on down to the Royal Stables.
Accommodation near Christiansborg
The Little Mermaid
Landmarks
Poor Little Mermaid. She’s been through a lot. She’s been doused in paint, decapitated, flaunted around the world, misrepresented by Disney and – on top of all that – every tourist who comes to Copenhagen complains about how small she is. But when it comes to renown, she’s a bronze behemoth, a true city icon and the star of many-a-postcard and grinning selfie.
Accommodation near The Little Mermaid
Amalienborg Palace
Landmarks
Left, right, left, right. If you’re into dashing soldiers doing their soldiery thing, head to Amalienborg. The changing of the guard happens at twelve sharp. This daily ritual unfolds in the octagonal square, under the bronze gaze of Frederik V’s statue. Turn up on Queen Margrethe’s birthday to watch patriotic Danes wave their “Dannebrog” (Danish flag) with pride.
Accommodation near Amalienborg Palace
Strøget
Shopping areas
Strøget’s an elongated capital of commerce. High-street chains, swanky boutiques, shawarma vendors, cafés old and new – it’s all here. As well as the world and his dog. Around 50,000 people pass through Strøget on a quiet day. Trawl this prodigious stretch, amassing trinkets and threads as you go. Need a breather? Fuel up with a juicy “pølse” (hot dog) from a stand.
Accommodation near Strøget
Nyhavn
Popular areas
Picture-postcard Copenhagen. This harbour is a sight to behold – on still waters, creaking schooners bob and sway next to cutesy toy-town houses. Once the shady haunt of seedy seamen, Nyhavn swapped bordellos for bistros, which now rake in tourists’ “krone” by the bucketload. On sunny days, grab a beer and dangle your legs over the quayside till dusk. “Skål” (cheers)!
