The beautiful capital of Denmark is a recommended destination for a day trip or weekend trip, as it has a lot to offer! The former fishing village offers everything you could want from a successful city trip in terms of sightseeing, dining and leisure.

Sightseeing: Sights & Attractions

Probably the most famous landmark in Copenhagen is the Little Mermaid. The tourist attraction is located at the Langelinie Pier and is with a height of only 125 cm the smallest landmark in the world. So when they are in Copenhagen, they should definitely make a short trip to the little mermaid! For fun and games for the whole family, the amusement park “Tivoli” in downtown Copenhagen. A variety of roller coasters, rides but also concerts, ensure an eventful day!

Tivoli is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, and its fairy-tale ambience invites several million visitors every year. Another item that should be on your bucket list when you come to Copenhagen is the bustling downtown area known as Strøget. With a variety of stores, vintage stores and department stores, the popular pedestrian zone is one of the largest shopping areas in Europe. Our last recommendation for your day program in Copenhagen is “Nyhavn”, the heart of the city!

The beautiful colorful gabled houses that line the harbor serve as a meeting place for many residents and tourists. In cozy cafes, 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 summarized the most important places to go:

Restaurants: culinary, traditional & delicious

If you wanted to eat out in Copenhagen, we have special tips and recommendations for you! Copenhagen is not only suitable for sightseeing, but also has a lot to offer culinary! Even if it is not particularly cheap to eat in Copenhagen, it is worth it to dig a little deeper into your pocket! Street food like hotdogs, smørrebrød and broens gadekøkken are a must, but you’ll only get a real piece of Denmark when you sit down in one of the unique, quaint restaurants. What we also noticed is that street food in Denmark is very different from street food in LA. Read a little more about street food in Los Angeles here.

Very popular among Copenhageners is the restaurant “Radio”, which is highly recommended especially for gourmet eaters. Using seasonal ingredients, the kitchen will whip you up a tasty dish from their frequently changing menu. The wooden-walled restaurant also shines with its cozy, homey atmosphere and friendly ambiance. Another tip from us, is the restaurant “Døp”, which is known for its hot dogs. The typical dish, is a staple of Danish cuisine and can be specialized at Døp with spices such as garlic, rosemary, rosehip or parsley.

All hotdog fans should make a quick stop here and get ready for a taste explosion. For the Mediterranean taste, the “Gorilla” should be visited. The restaurant consists of a restaurant and a bar and offers everything your heart desires. Small portions are served, which contain a Mediterranean mixture of meat, fish and vegetables. Those who prefer Asian food should pay a visit to 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 unfamiliar dishes, those who are willing to experiment should not miss the common Chinese cuisine around pig’s ears and stomachs. Here we have again compiled our top 4 restaurants:

  1. Radio
  2. Døp
  3. Gorilla
  4. Great China
