Attractions & sightseeing


The other amusement park in Copenhagen. The one where you’d take your mates to get sloshed.

Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

Many things can come out of beer, and this one may be the most memorable. Probably the Best Museum in Copenhagen.


Perhaps best known for its iconic Zaha Hadid-designed annex, but also home to one of Europe’s finest collections of French impressionist art.

Statens Museum for Kunst

One of the best museums in Copenhagen, full of arty treasures from the 14th century to the present day.

The former brewery grounds of Carlsberg have been turned into a breeding ground for creatives and rapidly becoming a must-visit stop on the art route.

The Little Mermaid

The petite lady with the fishy bottom is back on her dockside rock in Copenhagen.

Danish Design Centre

The Danes have a knack for design as this museum attests to, with three floors documenting their excellence in product and industrial design.

Kunsthal Charlottenborg

The city’s largest contemporary arts space is a honeypot for young artists and host for the acclaimed annual Spring exhibition.


Venture out with the Vikings and check out the country’s cultural gems inside this beautiful 18th century mansion.


The exterior of the "Toaster" has been the butt of many a joke, but absolutely nothing wrong about the stunning interiors or big productions of the national opera house.


No boring Roman amphitheatres or ballet boxes at Copenhagen’s impressive Jean Nouvel-designed blue cube concert hall.

Kongelige Bibliotek – The Black Diamond

Scandinavia’s largest collection of books and manuscripts is worth a visit for the staggering architecture alone.

Chart the progression of, and changes in, Danish design aesthetics at one of Copenhagen’s loveliest rococo buildings.
