茱丽叶lovely walk on a sunny day. the statue recalls the popular fairytale making you feel a child again. not too many people so it’s enjoyable. there was a seagull on the head of the mermaid, nice shot for a photo.
E38***43Nyhavn was an amazing sight! We just stopped there to feel the breeze and see the wonderful architecture lined up along the beautiful waterway. Nearby are public places where people can sunbathe and play beach volleyball. This place is a must see in Copenhagen!
sculptorAmalienborg Palace is the residence of the Danish royal family. It consists of four identical classical palace facades, surrounded by rococo interiors in an octagonal courtyard; in the center of the square is a huge equestrian statue of King Frederick V, founder of Amalienborg.
Amalienborg was originally built for four noble families. However, when the Christiansborg Palace was burned down on February 26, 1794, the royal family purchased these palaces and moved into this palace. Over the years, various monarchs and their families lived in four different palaces.
D33***27The second oldest city amusement park in the world, it is worth checking out to enjoy the gardens, music and take in the lively atmosphere. It opens till late and you need to get tickets (Note: be mindful that Tivoli closes at certain times of the year)
关裕年guanyunianIn 1913, the Danish sculptor Edvard Eriksen cast a bronze statue of a mermaid based on Andersen's fairy tale "The Daughter of the Sea". The bronze statue is located in the Long Causeway Park (Langelinie) in Copenhagen and has become a symbol of Denmark. In addition, in Copenhagen’s Town Hall Square, there is a full-body bronze statue of Andersen. Every tourist passing by must shook hands with the "Father of Fairy Tales", holding Andersen's books and taking pictures with them. In Odense, Andersen's hometown, there is the Andersen House Museum, where countless people who are fascinated by Andersen's fairy tales come to pay their respects and visit.

Denmark is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. Denmark proper,[N 2] which is the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and an archipelago of 443 named islands, with the largest being Zealand, Funen and the North Jutlandic Island. The islands are characterised by flat, arable land and sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate. Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norway,[N 11] and is bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom of Denmark is constitutionally a unitary state comprising Denmark proper and the two autonomous territories in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark has a total area of 42,943 km2 (16,580 sq mi) as of 2020, and the total area including Greenland and the Faroe Islands is 2,210,579 km2 (853,509 sq mi). Denmark proper has a population of 5.83 million (as of 2020).
The unified kingdom of Denmark emerged in the 8th century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. Denmark, Sweden, and Norway were ruled together under one sovereign ruler in the Kalmar Union, established in 1397 and ending with Swedish secession in 1523. The areas of Denmark and Norway remained under the same monarch until 1814, Denmark–Norway.
Lovely place to visit and walk around! I was especially excited to see the little mermaid but the architecture, and food are fabulous too!
At the Hov church. Quite isolated which makes the place more peaceful and serene. beautiful small church with the amazing views of snow covered peaks in the background. If you want peace in quiet, this is for you.
Copenhagen is probably one of the few big cities where I would live.
When I spent a weekend last February I had the chance to enjoy its friendly people, its great food and the fact you can cross the city by foot or bike in just less than an hour (also don’t forget that public transportation works great and smoothly).
After my arrival, I ran to the picturesque canal of Nyhavn, one of Copenhagen’s most iconic spots. It’s truly a lovely place full of colored houses with plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can have breakfast or dine. Then I rented an electric scooter to visit the neighborhoods of Østerbro and Nørrebro: the latter is known for the amazingly cool Superkilen, a public park designed to bring refugees and locals together, promoting tolerance. Not far from there, a must see: the Grundtvigs Kirke, an incredible example of impressionist architecture.
Other notable spots are the super cool Rundetaarn tower (very cheap to visit), Magstræde, Rosenborg and Amalienborg palaces, Tivoli Gardens and the Botanic Garden. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to explore the whole city, but I’m already planning a longer, second trip! #denmark #copenhagen #europe #travel #weekend #awesomepic
The Nordic countries have always attracted me but I hadn't been there yet because of the cold. If you are like me, you should go there in May to take advantage of a more pleasant weather and to discover the city on foot.
Copenhagen is a very cute city that can be visited in at least 3 days.
I strongly advise you to take a walk in the streets of the historical center, to go to the Nyhavn Harbour at different times of the day as I did, at sunrise, during the day and at sunset. Moreover it is very pleasant to go there to have a drink or eat a waffle because it is very lively.
If you go there in April/May and want to see cherry blossoms, go to St Alban's Church and also to Rosenborg Castle Park. At the end of the day the light is beautiful.
There are two things not to be missed: the free district of Christiana which does not depend on the city, the inhabitants live in total autonomy, it is quite surprising. The other thing to do if you have a little more time is to visit the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. You will have to take the train to get there and expect a good half day.
I also really liked the Royal Library, whose facade is really splendid, especially in the spring. #awesomepic #couplestrip #instagramworthydestinations #springholiday
Copenhagen is an extremely family friendly city full of museums, cute restaurants, colourful streets, and pretty scenery. Rent a bike and ride along the canals as a family before stopping for a fun snack. We loved the vibrant buildings in Nyhavn where the canal is lined with mouthwatering restaurants and pretty boats. Our kids couldn't get enough of the famous chocolate covered waffles and we loved sitting outdoors for a refreshing drink. After a pretty walk along the water we came across the original The Little Mermaid Statue which was the ideal spot to snap a few memorable photos. Make sure to head to Torvehallerne to explore the local food stalls serving delicious fare and visit one of the many epic playgrounds perfect for little ones to jump, climb, and play with locals. A truly beautiful and safe city that is extremely child friendly and fun.
