Copenhagen Holidays 2024/2025

Copenhagen city breaks are bursting with history and beautiful street art, teamed with a stunning waterfront setting. Copenhagen, Denmark’s much-loved capital city, was originally a Viking fishing village. It’s now filled with amazing tourist attractions and photogenic spots, like the colourful harbour in the Nyhavn district which is instantly recognisable for its vintage boats and rainbow-painted cafés.

History and Arts Galore

Copenhagen is home to one of the oldest monarchies in the world, so you can be sure that there’s plenty of castles and palaces to explore during your stay. There’s also tons of museums for you to wander round and enjoy too – check out the reconstructed 17th-century houses at the Open Air Museum, spy ancient art collections at Glyptotek, or delve deeper into the city’s 800-year past at the Museum of Copenhagen.


Copenhagen is an art lover’s paradise! The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art’s a must-see – it’s packed with famous works from the likes of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Even the streets play host to some amazing, snappable spots, like The Little Mermaid statue by the waterfront which has quickly become one of the city’s most famous landmarks.

Cutlery At The Ready

Over many years, Copenhagen has been perfecting its dining scene, and the Danish capital now boasts no less than 15 Michelin-starred restaurants, more than any other Scandinavian capital. In recent years, sous chefs from lots of high-profile kitchens have spread their wings and have opened their own new and exciting eateries where culinary mastery comes with a less eye watering price tag. 

You can expect to chow down on the freshest of dishes and produce with food being served after being grown and nurtured from chefs and restaurants’ own gardens, greenhouses and farms. For an authentic foodie experience, taking a trip to the food markets is a must. Torvehallerne serves up classic market hall dishes, Tivoli Food Hall offers up the very best fast gourmet food and Nørrebro Station is a local favourite.

Family Fun

Tivoli Gardens is one of the oldest operating theme parks in the world, and it’s right here in Copenhagen’s city centre, so it’d be rude not to pay it a visit. There’s something for everyone, from a 19 metre-tall ferris wheel and a nostalgic carousel to dragon boats and adrenaline-pumping rollercoasters. And when you’re done with the rides, you can grab a bite to eat from the park’s open-plan food hall.

One of the best ways to see the city is on two wheels and even the locals favour this mode of transport. The city’s e-bike rental scheme lets you pick up and return one from any of the hundreds of cycle parks. The Harbour Circle’s one of the most popular routes – it spans 13 kilometres around Copenhagen’s waterfront.

Romantic Strolls

Frederiksberg Have has been dubbed Copenhagen’s most romantic park, with picturesque lakes, woodlands and lovely picnic lawns. The park’s grand baroque palace, Frederiksborg Slot, was the royal family’s summer residence until the mid-19th century. These days it houses the Royal Danish Military Academy. 

Frederiksberg Have’s most unusual attraction is its suttetræet (sucky tree), located north of the Chinese Pavilion. The 250-year-old tree is hard to miss, its branches hung with hundreds of colourful ribbons tied to baby dummies. According to Danish tradition, when a toddler turns three it is time to give up their dummy. To make the separation easier, parents and children hang the dummy on their local suttetræet, along with a note on behalf of the toddler asking the tree to take good care of it.
