    Man, last time I was in Copenhagen I only had a few hours while I waited for a flight. Only got to see Nyhavn, but wish I had had time to do the rest too. Also turned out to be the Queen’s birthday and I missed seeing her from the palace balcony by meer minutes! Gah, next time! Great stuff as per usual.

      Thanks David! At least you got to see some of the city – many people wouldn’t even leave the airport! It’s a great place and I really want to go back in the summer!

    What a great guide! If you like beer, the Carlsberg Brewery is an excellent suggestion – went there myself this summer and had a great time. (I live just outside Copenhagen). Didn’t really know what there was at the National Museum, I think I’ll check that out when I get the chance 😛

      I really enjoyed the National Museum! Some really cool exhibits and was great to learn about the region and its history! I will make sure to give you a shout next time I am in Denmark!

    Copenhagen looks like a place I need to visit. I would love to see the Tivoli Gardens and the Christmas markets, visit the brewery, and Nyhaven. Also a cool thing to do is see Copenhagen on a bike. Stunning photos and thanks for sharing 🙂

    Oh man, I’d love to visit Copenhagen someday! The Trivoli Gardens sounds like something I’d love to spend a day in (as I’m still a kid and love amusement parks). And Christiani sounds so interesting… I’d love to just wander around there and go cafe hopping!

      Tivoli is fantastic – just make sure to check the opening times when you go as it’s not open all year round! Oh, the cafes and bakeries are amazing – makes me want to go back just for those!

    I love the colorful buildings in Nyhavn! I’ve never been to Copenhagen but when I do go I will take your advice of seeing it on two wheels, sounds like fun!

    Ah we love Copenhagen! The Danes are just ridiculously cool and arty! Great suggestions of things to do, we did a few of them. Smørrebrød is delicious and Nyhaven is touristy but beautiful, we were lucky with the weather when we visited and enjoyed a few beers there!

      Garth, glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, I probably would stay away from the restaurants in Nyhavn but walking through it or grabbing a beer on a summer evening would be so great!

    Looks pretty fascinating. Gardens, great food, and a brewery, what’s not to like? Nyhavn sounds like a cool place to wander around catch a little history with a jazz tune or two. Hope to visit one day! Thanks for the nice post.

      Kelly, I will stay in there with him while you explore! The beer is great and the tour was really informative. Nyhavn is fantastic too!

    I planned to visit Denmark on a road trip in 2015 but the old car kept breaking down so we ended heading back down through Germany. I would still like to visit Denmark and Copenhagen though and will be in Europe mid this year, so maybe I will.

      Barry, that’s a shame but good that you will have another chance to go. It would be great to visit in the summer – many of the things I mention in the post would be even better to do in warmer weather!

    Wow, Copenhagen has 16 Michelin starred restaurants? Awesome! I love your idea of hiring a bike and cycling around, I don’t believe anyone else has suggested that before and I wouldn’t have thought of it although I have no idea why – the CIty is perfect for cycling! Some really interesting suggestions here, I particularly like Christiania, the museums and the food markets! Thanks for sharing #feetdotravel

      Copenhagen is practically made for cycling, just like Amsterdam! I do get intimidated by people going really fast around me as I am not the best cyclist (I tend to swerve a bit) but it’s great fun!

    I missed the Carlsberg brewery when I visited, next time! The beer must taste better at the source? I love the colourful picture from Christiania!

    I’ve been to Copenhagen when I was 12 and love to go back! The food looks amazing and I love the colourful houses. Sounds like it’s also a great city to explore by bicycle 🙂

    This is a city break I really want to do. Looks like a lot of interesting things to see including the brewery and the gardens. I have pinned this for future use 🙂

    A couple years ago, we made a decision to NOT go to Copenhagen. As you can imagine, we’ve been regretting that decision. Even more after reading this. Thanks for the Must See list – can’t wait for a chance to enjoy the city.

      You should definitely try and make it over there at some point – the city is beautiful, the people friendly and you get to experience hygge for yourself!

    I have been to Copenhagen when I was 15 and to be honest, all I can remember is that I liked the architecture and the colourful houses. I have heard a lot about Christiania from friends and other bloggers and believe it to be similar to Uzupis in Vilnius. We have a travelling Tivoli in Estonia in the summer. I never knew they would use the same name for an amusement park somewhere else. To be fair, that’s where Estonians probably got the name for it. Anyway, looks like I have to go back and refresh my memory!

      You should definitely head there when you are back in Europe – it’s a great place to explore and there are plenty of things to do outside the city too! Really interesting about the travelling amusement park!

    My home-town in Scotland (East Kilbride) is twinned with Ballerup in Denmark. I was supposed to go there 30 years ago when I was sixteen on an exchange program but I had to pull out at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. I was so jealous when all my pals came back with their Copenhagen Christiania Hash stories. Nyhavn looks lovely! Nice post.

      Well it’s never too late to go! Christiania is definitely different to what you would experience back then but still a unique place to visit!
