Let’s explore the best things to do in Copenhagen: 1. Tivoli Gardens Source: Andrij Vatsyk / shutterstockTivoli Gardens Such is this theme park’s fame that some people come to Copenhagen just t visit Tivoli Gardens. And even if you’re not in the mood to get on a rollercoaster or carousel it’s an unforgettable place for an amble thanks to its romantic 19th-century representations of the Orient. After Bakken, also in Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is the world’s oldest theme park, and if you do have kids with you they will have the time of their lives on some of these rides. Worth special mention is the Star Flyer, a carousel that hikes riders up 80 metres above the ground.
His long reign and engagement in the Thirty Years’ War that swept across mainland Europe made him one of the best-known Scandinavian Kings. The interiors of this lavish palace have hardly changed in centuries, and feature historic tapestries charting the conflicts between Denmark and Sweden. You can also see the king’s chambers, take a look at his bathroom and see where he wrote his correspondence. Do be sure to browse the collections of 17th-century Venetian glass and Flora Danica dinnerware in the tower chambers: They’re among the best in the world.
The Vikings are also well-covered by this museum, and many artefacts from this collection were sent on a tour of the worldin 2014. 6. Christiansborg Palace Source: Bucchi Francesco / shutterstockChristiansborg Palace Set on the Islet of Slotsholmen, Christiansborg contains Denmark’s Supreme Court, the Prime Minister’s office and the Danish Parliament. The Danish royal family and prime minster also make use of the palace’s ornate reception rooms for formal events and to receive other heads of state. The highlight of these reception rooms is the Great Hall, 40 metres long and able to seat 400 guests. On a tour you’ll also get to see the Riding School, which is overlooked by a gallery, and the little court theatre which was built in 1767 and updated in 1842.

It’s a commune that was established back in 1971 on the back of the counter culture movement. Nearly half a century later it continues to thrive, although things have been bumpy along the way as the people who live and work here wrangle with the Danish government for more autonomy. The best way to describe it is as a peaceful park, with historic army warehouses and barracks taken over by artists’ studios, organic shops, restaurants and music venues. Because of the drug activity here it’s a good idea to be aware of the various “do’s and don’ts” before entering. Get off the beaten path: Free Spirited 1. 5-Hour Guided Walking Tour 10.
