The Little Mermaid 4.0 stars
Sculpture, Monument, Statue, Memorial Place - #1 of 18
This is probably one of the most overrated tourist attractions anywhere, or maybe it is just the fact that the little lady is so small. In reality, she is living proof that photography has no scale. Still, visitors come from all over the world to ... [more ]
Statens Museum for Kunst 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #2 of 18
The happening Danish art scene doesn't just lie outside of Copenhagen, and thanks to the Statens Museum for Kunst (Public Museum of Art), you can enjoy the classics alongside modern masterpieces. In and of itself, the building is a work of art. ... [more ]
Østerbro 4.0 stars
Square - #3 of 18
The center of Copenhagen is great and shouldn’t be missed, but don’t forget the other neighborhoods. When I was in Copenhagen in 2006 I brought my bike on the train from Malmö and cycled to Østerbro. I preferred this area in front of the city, ... [more ]
The Polse Wagon 2.0 stars
Market Place - #4 of 18
They are the Danish version of American Hot Dog Vendors and you will see them all around the city center selling their wares. If you are up early in the morning you might even see a wagon being towed behind a bicycle. Many types of sausages are ... [more ]
Nyhavn 5.0 stars
Harbour - #5 of 18
This translates into English as New Harbor. Actually, it is a canal built in the late 1600's that since the advent of color photography might be the second most photographed site in Copenhagen. It used to be a genuine sailor's quarter (the ... [more ]
Christiana 4.0 stars
Quarter - #6 of 18
The hippie section of Copenhagen that used to be the old navy barracks, but was taken over by "homesteaders" in the early 1970's. This odd assortment of free enterprisers, social libertarians, non-conformists and entrepreneurs has transposed this ... [more ]
Amalienborg Palace 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #7 of 18
Between Nyhavn and the Little Mermaid there is Amalienborg, where the Queen resides for nine months of the year. During the summer she escapes to her country retreat out in the suburbs of Copenhagen. When the Queen is in residence, the royal ... [more ]
Church of Our Saviour 5.0 stars
Church, Cathedral, Chapel - #8 of 18
In English it is called Our Savior's Church. The pipe organ inside the church is very ornate and sounds great, when it is played, but the neatest thing here is the set of circular stairs that spirals around the steeple. You can climb these stairs ... [more ]
Free Bikes 4.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #9 of 18
The first thing I noticed about Copenhagen was all the bicycles. The Danes ride around in large packs and they obey all the traffic signals. The cyclists even have their own lanes and sets of traffic lights to regulate the heavy bike traffic. ... [more ]
National Museum of Denmark 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #10 of 18
A fascinating exhibit of cultural artifacts, clothing attire and utilian objects from past periods of Danish history. When I visited I was most impressed by a very long viking hull that was own loan from Germany. That's right this 50' long boat ... [more ]
Rosenborg Castle 4.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #11 of 18
Surrounding the Rosenborg Castle are the popular Rosenborg Gardens. This large patch of greenery just caty-corner from the Statens Museum is well worth a walk-through or a picnic lunch. During fair weather concessioaires sell coffee, drinks and ... [more ]
Free Museums on Wednesday 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #12 of 18
Some of Copenhagen's museums open their doors to the general public on Wednesdays. This would include the Statens Museum For Kunst, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and the National Museum. What a great chance to see some fine art collections and not ... [more ]
Blumsterkunst Tage Andersen 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #13 of 18
I like visiting art galleries and boutiques owned by artists. I remember when I was in Copenhagen with my mother a few years ago, and we found this pretty gallery and boutique run by the Danish artist Tage Andersen. The boutique is located at Ny ... [more ]
Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #14 of 18
I went here to see the French painters, but for some strange reason that part of the exhibition was closed. Still there is an impressive collection of Classical Danish painting from the Golden Age, a whole room full of marble statues and a great ... [more ]
Resistance Museum 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #15 of 18
Located not to far from the Little Mermaid is the Museum of the Danish Resistance. This small one-story building documents the rise of the Danish Resistance that developed during the course of German Occupation in World War II. There are ... [more ]
Bedgade Galleries 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #16 of 18
Bedgade Street begins at the edge of Nyhavn and runs north towards the royal palace. Along this busy avenue there are many fine art galleries where you can look at all thewindow displays from the sidewalk or enter the gallery and chat with the ... [more ]
Streetmachine 3.0 stars
Shopping - #17 of 18
Sightseeing can be fun, but after a few hours you might want to see where the locals shop and eat instead of following the tourist paths. My sister and I found Streetmachine after a lunch at a nearby restaurant. Streetmachine is located at ... [more ]
Norrebro 2.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #18 of 18
I would say that Norrebro is not as attractive as the other parts of Copenhagen. That is simply the impression I got when we cycled there. But perhaps the rain, the foggy weather, and the fact that we mostly saw the outer parts of Norrebro ... [more ]
