5 good reasons to go to Copenhagen
To see / do
Culture and history
A breathtaking church
The Church of Our Saviour was built at the end of the 17th century. Its spire pierces the sky above Copenhagen, while its Baroque interior is subtle but still beautiful. Its sculptures, altar and organ are incredible. The icing on the cake is undeniably the black and gold twisted spire. Climb (with difficulty) to the top and admire the stunning views of the city.
Stargazing at the Round Tower
The Round Tower or Rundetårn was also built in the 17th century and is now a working astronomical observatory. A library and church were set up inside the tower, but could only be accessed using a spiral ramp, which leads to all the individual rooms in the Round Tower. It’s worth knowing that the very top of the building offers unrivalled panoramic views of Copenhagen.
Christiania is much more than a district of Copenhagen; it’s a free town in itself. In 1971, a group of hippies took over a former military base. Since then, inhabitants of Christiania have maintained that the area is a town in its own right, separate from Copenhagen. Here, you enter a completely different world, one that’s chilled, alternative and creative. A very welcome break!
A wild visit to Tivoli
Enjoy the magic of Tivoli Gardens! Adults and children alike will adore this beautiful theme park, which was opened back in 1843. You’ll get shivers down your spine, especially on the Star Flyer, one of the world’s tallest swing rides. Although the park is only open between April and September, it does open for Halloween and Christmas.
The local produce on sale at Torvehallerne market is a real treat to behold. A stroll through the two glass and steel halls filled with stalls displaying the best of Danish cuisine is enough to tempt anyone's taste buds. And there are plenty of tables for sitting down for a quick bite to eat. The hardest part is choosing from all the mouthwatering options!
Smørrebrød, a traditional Danish snack
Why not treat yourself to a smørrebrød? Smørrebrød is a type of open sandwich that’s sure to quell any hunger pangs. Slices of buttered rye bread are topped with all sorts of ingredients: salmon, smoked kippers, cheese, salad, cold meats and more. The Danes mostly eat them for lunch.
Flødeboller, a sweet treat from the North
Flødeboller are traditional Danish teacakes. The classic Flødeboller consists of a small meringue covered in chocolate and topped with buttercream. But the kind of flødeboller you find more commonly today are made with a biscuit base, which is covered in Italian meringue with a marshmallow consistency.
