Copenhagen Holidays Overview


Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is one of the oldest cities in Scandinavia but also one of its most modern and cosmopolitan. Much of this is due to its history of being a university city and port of call for trade. It has excellent nightlife, culture and shopping plus a unique balance of culture that mixes the classical with the modern and experimental side by side. Copenhagen is exceptionally beautiful yet has a very intimate feel and it acts as the geographical and cultural link between Scandinavia and Europe.

Indre By or the Medieval City is Copenhagen's historical centre with great shopping, narrow alleys, historic buildings and many churches. One of the most distinctive parts of the city is Frederiksstaden. The district is home to the Amalienborg Palace along with many rococo mansions dating back to the 18th century. The inner city includes Christianshavn, Christiansborg and Slotsholmen.

Vesterbro is a recently developed, trendy district with many bars and cafes. The northern suburbs include many unique attractions like the Mill River, the world's oldest and still operational amusement park and the largest open air museum in the world, Frilandsmuseet.

Copenhagen has many world class museums. The National Museum is the country's largest cultural and archaeology history museum. The National Gallery includes collections from the 12th century and is regarded as one of the best in Denmark.

The city's cuisine is regarded as one of the best in the world. Copenhagen has a large number of ethnic, international and Danish restaurants. Copenhagen has many Michelin Star restaurants and is recognized as a leading gourmet destination today. It has more bars and restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the world. The nightclubs in the city stay open till 6AM or even longer. Nightlife in the city is centred on the inner city, Frederiksberg, Sankt Hans Torv, Vesterbro, Enghave Plads and Istedgade.

Copenhagen holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Tivoli Gardens
Vesterbrogade 3
www.tivoli.dk
What is it? Copenhagen's world-renowned Tivoli Gardens are ever so much more than just a central city park. The relatively small area in the heart of the city is actually one of the world's most thrilling entertainment complexes, drawing about three million visitors during its five-month summer open season each year. Tivoli dates back to 1843 when Copenhagen was still a fortified city surrounded by tall ramparts and a deep moat. Today the Tivoli Lake is all that remains of the moat, which now reflects the incredible trademark fireworks displays that light the sky over the gardens twice a week. Tivoli is split in two, one section housing the beautiful miniature gardens where more than 100,000 flowers bloom, and the other the theme park with game arcades and thrill rides. Tivoli also boasts a concert hall and open-air stages where dozens of concerts, pantomimes and circus shows, many of them free, are offered during the season. Hours of Operation: Open daily at 11am; closing times vary according to season, but usually between 11pm and 12.30am. See website for details Phone:3315 1001
