There's always more waiting in Copenhagen, from unforgettable meals to marvelous walks down cobblestone streets and alongside sherbet-hued houses. It's a place where old fairy tales and quaint architecture mesh with cutting-edge fashion and industrial-chic bars. Indeed, this former fishing colony has launched Scandinavia onto the hip travel scene, while still holding tightly to its traditions. If you're not careful, Copenhagen may hold onto to you as well.
Out and About in Copenhagen
Copenhagen musts include playing carnival games at Tivoli Gardens, taking lesson in Danish culture and history at the National Museum of Denmark, perusing exhibits at the Danish Museum of Art and Design, and exploring Freetown Christiania -- the world's most famous experiment in communal living. Additionally, art-lovers shouldn't miss the classical works at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Thanks to the city's compact nature as well as great public transit and biking lanes, many hotels in Copenhagen are within a short distance of these major attractions, especially hotels near the Copenhagen City Centre.
That's not all. Danish beaches are great in the summer. Flea markets, such as the large Frederiksberg Loppemarked, boast all sorts of unique products, as does Stroget, one of the world's largest pedestrian malls. Be sure to check out architectural landmarks like Rundetarn (Round Tower), City Hall, and the Marble Church (or Frederik's Church).

If you're impressed by the best hotels in Copenhagen, you'll be just as wowed by the food. If you're looking for something on a budget, check out the delicious bakeries, sausage wagons (called "polsevogn"), and shawarma and pizza joints dotting the city.
