10 Things To See & Do in Copenhagen

Although I’m sure that some of these are tourist traps, and I have long from seen everything there is to see in Copenhagen, I thought I’d put in my two cents and tell you about the top 10 things I enjoyed most in the Danish capital. I hope it inspires you to go and visit. 

  1. Nyhavn

    Nyhavn, or translated into English “The New Harbour”, is probably the most well-known highlight of Copenhagen and even though it can get busy, it does not disappoint. On sunny days, the colours of the houses are exquisite, in gloomy weather they can brighten up your day. It’s so nice to sit by the water and have a glass of wine or ice cream or maybe even a Danish hot dog.


  2. Visit the Carlsberg brewery

    Carlsberg is a famous beer brand in Scandinavia and the old brewery, which is located in the city, is now partly a museum. You can find out more about the beer brewing process, the history of the brand, and on top of that you can enjoy a couple of beers and Danish food in their beer garden. Especially lovely on a sunny day.


  3. The Church Of Our Saviour

    This church has a splendid view over the city and its colourful and warm houses. It’s one of the cheaper views too. There is a spiral staircase that goes all the way to the very top of the church. Just make sure that the weather conditions allow entrance (when it’s snowing or really rainy, they won’t open)


  4. Enjoy the Danish pastries

    No words needed, I’ll let the picture do the talking.


  5. Feel royal at Rosenberg Castle

    It doesn’t cost you anything to roam the park and see the castle from the outside, which I think is the best view anyways.


  6. Enjoy the green at Botanisk Have

    This botanical garden is part of the University of Copenhagen. It has some beautiful greenhouses and it is HUGE. Even in winter it’s worth a visit.


  7. Release your inner child at Tivoli
    I’m not much one for theme parks, but I feel Tivoli is entirely unique in its category. For every occasion, they dress up the park and it feels like an entirely different world. It’s like a light festival, a cute market, fun rides, great food and old-fashioned stalls combined and although that sounds kind of crazy, it somehow works.


  8. Enjoy the space at Amalienborg palace

    Amalienborg palace is the official palace of the Danish king and queen and it is here that the changing of the guards takes place. I loved roaming the spacious square (which is actually a circle), plus it offers a great view on Frederiks Kirke.


  9. Invest in some Scandinavian design

    If there’s one thing Copenhagen has enough of, it’s furniture and design shops. Personally, I’m a fan, so I could totally see my future house decorated in, well, basically everything that was sold there.


  10. Walk (or bike!) around and enjoy the beautiful streets

    And if you’re lucky you might come across a Christmas Market. Or two. Or three. Well, Copenhagen is beautiful in every lights. Sunny or gloomy. Winter or summer. Day or night.

Due to lack of time (because I’m still in Scotland), this month, you get the uncut, unedited version of all the pictures. Enjoy!

Finding out that my grandma loves the mug I got her when I returned from Sweden (it says Mormor, which means grandma) she nearly got a heart attack when she dropped it. It was fine. And so was she. Thank god.

Finding Vegemite in my local supermarket. Life will never be the same again.
It will be better.

Getting a haircut. Blonder. Shorter. Crazier?


The first snow and my mum spying on the neighbours (just kidding. Or am I?)
