Sightseeing: Places of interest & Attractions
The most famous sight in Copenhagen is probably the Little Mermaid. This tourist attraction is located at the Langelinie Pier and is the smallest landmark in the world with a height of only 125 cm. If you are in Copenhagen, you should in any case make a short side trip to the Little Mermaid! Fun and games for the whole family are provided by the amusement park “Tivoli” in downtown Copenhagen. A variety of roller coasters, rides and concerts make for an eventful day! Tivoli is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world and with its fairy-tale ambience invites several million visitors every year. Another point that should be on your bucket list when you come to Copenhagen is the lively city centre known as “Strøget”. With a variety of shops, vintage stores and department stores, the popular pedestrian zone is one of the largest shopping miles in Europe. Our final recommendation for your day in Copenhagen is “Nyhavn”, the heart of the city! The beautiful colourful gabled houses that line the harbour serve as a meeting point for many residents and tourists. In cosy cafés, unique restaurants and charming bars, all the people of the world come together and enjoy the harmonious flair. Whether culture, shopping, leisure or food – the Danish capital scores in all categories! Here we have once again summarised the most important places to go:
- The Little Mermaid
- Tivoli Leisure Park
Restaurants: culinary, traditional & delicious
If you wanted to go out for dinner in Copenhagen, we have some special tips and recommendations for you! Copenhagen is not only great for sightseeing, but also has a lot to offer from a culinary point of view! Even if it’s not particularly cheap to eat in Copenhagen, it’s always worth digging a little deeper into your pockets! Streetfood, like hot dogs, Smørrebrød and Broens Gadekøkken, is a must, but a real piece of Denmark you will only take with you when you sit down in one of the unique, rustic restaurants. Very popular with Copenhageners is the restaurant “Radio”, which is especially recommended for gourmet eaters. With seasonal ingredients, the kitchen conjures up a tasty dish from their frequently changing menu. The restaurant, which is equipped with wooden walls, also shines with its cosy, homely atmosphere and friendly ambience. Another tip from us is the restaurant “Døp”, which is known for its hot dogs. This typical dish, is a main ingredient of the Danish cuisine and can be specialized in the Døp with spices like garlic, rosemary, rosehip or parsley. All hot dog fans should make a short stop here and enjoy an explosion of taste. For the Mediterranean taste, the “Gorilla” should be visited. The restaurant is composed of a restaurant and a bar and thus offers everything your heart desires. Small portions are served, which contain a Mediterranean mixture of meat, fish and vegetables. Those who are more into Asian food should visit the “Great China”. With traditional Chinese food and an inviting atmosphere, this charming restaurant attracts its visitors. Although there are also questionable and for us unusual dishes, those who like to experiment should not miss the common Chinese cuisine around pig ears and stomachs. Here we have put together our top 4 restaurants again:
- Great China
