Whether you’re looking for adventure or a peaceful weekend away, there’s something for everyone. Here are some of the best activities Copenhagen has on offer.
Tour the canals
One of the best ways to see a new city is from the water, and Copenhagen is no different. With so many famous sights and attractions on the canals edge, you’ll get to see a lot of the city from a canal boat tour. Jump in an open-top ferry on a warm summer’s day, or warm up inside in the winter. No matter the weather, there are boats to suit every season.
Make the most of the cycling culture
Copenhagen is particularly well known as one of the most cycling-friendly cities in the world. There are bike paths everywhere, not to mention a public bike hire scheme that’s incredible efficient and easy to use. You can even rent bikes that generate their own electric energy, so laziness is no excuse! Tour the city by bike and see three times as much as you’d see on foot, with or without the help of a trusted guide.
Eat as much as possible!
Copenhagen’s food scene is bursting at the seams and with so many different things that you HAVE to try, there’s just never enough time! The only solution? Go on a Copenhagen food tour so you can try a little bit of everything that this wonderful culinary city has to offer. From the pickled herrings to the Danish meatballs, classic hot dogs and Danish pastries that melt in your mouth. Delicious!
