Copenhagen has sights and attractions for every taste and interest – and most of them are within walking distance.
The three most famous attractions in the city are the 100-year-old amusement park Tivoli, the statue of the Little Mermaid and Freetown Christiania. But Copenhagen has much more to offer.
With a history that stretches all the way back to 1043, the city is full of historic landmarks, significant buildings and interesting attractions and museums. Don’t forget to visit Amalienborg Palace – home of the Danish royal family – and stroll down Strøget for a bit of shopping.
Copenhagen is a royal city and home to the world’s oldest monarchy. In and around the city, you’ll find castles, palaces, royal statues and monuments. Every day at noon, you can witness the changing of the Royal Danish Guard at Amalienborg. The Guard leaves its barracks at Rosenborg Castle at approximately 11.30 and marches through the city to Amalienborg Palace, residence of the Danish monarch Queen Margrethe II.
At Christiansborg, you can see the beautiful settings in which the Queen performs her official duties, and at Kronborg and the other castles, you can get a sense of the rich history of royal Copenhagen.
