While you’re out and about in Copenhagen, be sure to visit Tivoli Gardens. This spectacular amusement park which has been in existence since 1843 is a well-known attraction set in beautiful surroundings with thrilling rides, places to eat and unique architecture. It’s especially exciting around holidays like Christmas.
You can also go on a tour of Christiansborg Palace. It contains the Danish Parliament Folketinget, the Supreme Court and the Ministry of State. It is also home to the Queen’s Tapestries, hung in the Great Hall, a collection that depicts 1 100 years of Danish history starting from the Viking Age. Then there’s The Tower, which is the highest tower in the city and offers exceptional views, as well as the ruins underneath the palace of Bishop Absalon’s Castle from the 11th century. With so much to see, we’d say it’s a whole trip on its own. Enjoy!
