COPENHAGEN: TOP 25 I (BEST CITY by Lonely Planet (2019)) I TRAVEL GUIDE


Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital, has three
main areas: north, south and centre. Start by going to the beautiful Kongens Have, the king’s garden, a beloved picnic spot among the Danes. In the middle of it you can find one of the
city’s most visited places: the Rosenborg castle. Right next to it you have the Botanical Garden, with its iconic glasshouses. Exotic and Danish plants, rock gardens, a
lake and statues makes it a delight to stroll around at any time of day. The Amalienborg palace is the perfect place for History buffs, and the best time to visit is at 12 pm, when you can watch the changing of the guards. In front of King Frederik’s V statue, you
find the Amalie garden, a small park near the palace’s square and the harbour, where you can see the beautiful Royal Danish Opera House. In the lovely Churchillparken you’ll pass
by the Winston Churchill’s memorial, the St. Alban’s church, and the stunning Gefion fountain, that portrays the mythical story of the creation of the island of Zealand. The best time to go is in the last weekend
in April, where you will be surrounded by the striking cherry blossoms. Pink and white petals float through the air
as you make your way to the little mermaid. The most famous monument in the country, this
statue is inspired by the popular fairy tale written by the iconic Danish author Hans Christian
Andersen. You’ll fall in love with the nautical atmosphere
in the borough of Christianshavn, completely dominated by the canals. In here you’ll also find the Our Saviour’s
church, with its famous twisted spire. Freetown Christiania is an autonomous anarchist district, established in the 70’s when hippies occupied abandoned military barracks. It is advised to enter the area with caution, and the rules written at the entrance should be taken seriously. As you approach the city centre, you walk
by Børsen, the former stock exchange known for its unique spire, shaped as the tails
of four dragons entwine. The Christiansborg palace, is still used by
the royal family for several events, and you’ll be able to visit the Royal reception rooms, kitchen and stables. If you’re staying at the centre, walking
everywhere is easily doable, but if you choose to use transports, there are a couple of options available: The Copenhagen card that includes free admissions
to a lot of the main attractions. The Red busses, where you hop on and off from
these between all the main attractions, or embrace the Danish lifestyle and explore Copenhagen
by renting a bike; you’ll definitely feel like one of the locals. Copenhagen’s largest square, is an excellent
starting point to explore the central part of the city. In April and May, flea markets pop up everywhere, filled with cute & vintage knickknacks. Two minutes away there’s Nyhavn, the 17th
century waterfront with colourful townhouses and historical wooden ships. The old brothels were replaced by restaurants,
pubs, coffee shops and also several stores selling souvenirs. From here you can also get on a water bus
and cruise through the city’s different canals. Magasin du Nord is a great place to shop,
a big department store with selections for everyone of all ages. Carry on shopping in Strøget, one of Europe’s
longest pedestrian streets, with stores for all budgets and tastes. There’s coffee shops and restaurants with food from all over the world, and you’ll discover several lovely squares with striking fountains along the way. The Danish are famous for their bread and
pastry, and it will be hard to resist to everything available in the several bakeries spread across this street. You’ll also bump into the Round tower, an
equestrian staircase with a helical corridor all the way to the top, with an incredible
view of Copenhagen. At the end of Strøget there’s the City Hall. You can also visit its tower, and after 300 steps, you’ve a privileged view of the
centre and of Tivoli Gardens. This is the second-oldest amusement park in the world, and it truly offers something for everyone: striking architecture, fun rides
and luxurious gardens. There’s an enchanting and charming atmosphere
throughout the entire park. Everything in it its carefully designed and decorated, including the restaurants that offer you worldwide cuisine. The rides vary from virtual reality to more
traditional ones, all with an old-fashioned decoration that will give you a wonderful sense of nostalgia. The fun house mirrors were really amusing too. Tivoli has also a lot of classical and jazz
concerts, especially fun and enjoyable in the summer. One thing I would recommend is to visit the gardens at a time when you can experience it transitioning from day to night. It’s a completely different atmosphere,
with coloured lights appearing throughout the entire place, giving it a new and magical life to all the buildings and rides. If you’re a fan of beer, you must go to
the old Carlsberg factory. Smell the ingredients, admire the architecture
and join the beer tastings of this renowned Danish brand. 40 minutes away from Copenhagen there’s
Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city. Go to the stunning Central train station,
and soon you’ll be in another country by crossing Øresund. Summer is probably the best season to visit this city, nevertheless it’s great to have a taste
of another place in Scandinavia on your trip to Denmark. If you enjoyed this video please subscribe,
