About Copenhagen

Including tips for the best time to visit Copenhagen

Copenhagen is admired around the world for its groundbreaking design and innovation, featuring incredible architecture and loads of Michelin-starred restaurants. The Danish capital's cultural prestige is also evident in its wide array of galleries and museums, including the Experimentarium, the Danish National Gallery, and Nationalmuseet. See where Danish monarchs are announced at the impressive Danish Parliament Folketinget, Supreme Court, and the Ministry of State all dating back over 800 years. Also, a day trip to Christiansborg Palace on the small island of Slotsholmen is a must-see.

To experience the best of Danish design, stop by the Architecture Center and Designmuseum Danmark, both showcasing the country's knack for cutting-edge architecture. The capital is also home to the two oldest amusement parks in the world: Tivoli Gardens in the city center as well as Dyrehavsbakken, located in a picturesque beech forest to the north.

Copenhagen's culinary scene includes a wide range of delicious options for all budgets. For something traditional, try a Smørrebrød open-faced sandwich. Or if you want to splurge on some "New Nordic" specialities, try dining somewhere like Kadeau or Noma, which serve inventive gourmet meals.

Copenhagen's Kastrup Airport serves most major airlines and low-cost carriers, with mainline trains running between the terminals and the city center.

I like very well the shop with food in Frederiksbjerg on Gammel Kongevej, near the metro. Best food in town. Also I like Galleri Pialeh in Bulowsvej 7 a in Frederiksbjerg and I like Vesterbrogade very much.

July 3, 2022

Super clean city where the people really live with concern for the environment. Public transport is plentiful and cyclists and cycle hire is everywhere. Walking is easy Loads to see and do in the old and new part, beautiful buildings and parks, tourist bus gives a great feel for the city, great restaurants and shopping if that's your thing. Only draw back is it is super expensive compared to the UK and next time I would definitely avoid Christiania .... billed as an artistic commune this was definitely not my experience of the reality. Very edgy atmosphere and couldn't wait to get out!

This comment is regarding your internet access: The WI-FI did not work for my room # 410. It appeared, I gather from talking to other guests, that your WI-FI system has a flaw in this respect. Your reception wanted to get a technician to remedy the situation but that did not happen, at least not while I was there. I saw several guests having to go to the lobby to access the internet.

We love Copenhagen but the Admiral did not give us a wake up call at 3am for our taxi to the Airport fortunately I had my tiny old fashioned alarm with me other wise we would have missed a very important flight at 7am. NOT GOOD PR.

I love this place.

July 2, 2022

I love this place. This was the first time I was visiting and definitely not the last! We saw most of the city center as we lived within walking distance from everything but for the next time I would definitely consider renting a bike as everything is accessible by bike in Copenhagen. Definitely quickly became my favorite city.
