Considered one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Scandinavia by many, Copenhagen is clean, safe and easy to get around on foot and by public transport. A few steps from our accommodations in Copenhagen, immerse yourself in a fairy-tale world at the Tivoli Gardens, a centennial amusement park that combines 19th-century charm with 20th-century adrenaline-rushing rides.
Continue on your picture-book experience touring area palaces and castles. Christiansborg Palace, home to the Danish Parliament, is within easy walking distance for our Copenhagen hotel guests. Watch the Royal Guard shift-change at the royal residence, Amalienborg Palace, and then venture to nearby Kronborg castle, better known as Elsinore in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Shop as you stroll along the well-known Strøget Street, and then check out alternative art galleries and live music in Copenhagen’s Freetown of Christiana, a self-ruling collective within the city. Afterward, you can wonder at the world’s largest beer bottle collection and learn the about the history of beer at Carlsberg Brewery, a mandatory stop for beer-lovers during their stay at our hotel in Copenhagen.
For a unique view of the city that may inspire comparisons to Venice, abandon cobblestone streets for a canal tour and note Copenhagen’s heady architectural mixture of the boldly modern and the regally historic.
