Copenhagen – welcome to the capital of the happiest country in the world!
Here you can find everything! Delicious food, diverse architecture, hospitable people, and most importantly – comfort. The Danes call it the recipe for their happiness because very often in the bustle of a big city it is not enough comfort. Copenhagen is located on three islands. The climate is temperate with mild winters and fairly cool in summer.

Elegant royal palaces, Nyhavn Embankment, where the famous storyteller Hans Christian Andersen lived, the Round Tower, which houses one of the oldest observatories in Europe, the world-famous Mermaid statue … There are many places in Copenhagen that you can and should visit. The main thing is to plan your trip correctly so that you do not lose anything.
Travel Mode On advise you to visit these amazing places:
1. City Hall Square
If you want to see the best views of Copenhagen, the Town Hall is an ideal place for this. At the top of its 105-meter tower is an observation deck, which offers a breathtaking view of the city, although to get there you will have to overcome 300 steps – there is no elevator in the tower. As well as, there is the Town Hall, the famous astronomical clock Jens Olsen, which has been running smoothly since 1955 and is considered perhaps the most accurate in the world.
2. Bath Copenhagen Harbor Baths
This public bath is one of the city beaches called Københavns Havnegade. It is located on the shores of the Öresund strait, in the region of “Iceland Brugge”, on the island of Amager. A public bath accommodates up to 600 people and consists of several pools. Here you can dive or jump from a springboard. In general, a great place to happily spend the whole day.
3. Tivoli Park

A real holiday island in the middle of Copenhagen’s. Tivoli Park is one of the oldest in Europe. Being here, as if you find yourself in a fairy tale: cozy alleys, old carousels with painted horses, a leisurely Ferris wheel, offering a wonderful view of the park, music, and laughter – you do not want to leave this place.
Tip: in Tivoli, it is best to come in the evening when the illumination is turned on and the amusement park looks especially beautiful. More information about tickets and opening hours you can find here.
Few people know about this sight of the Danish capital but in vain. The fortress Kastellett is one of the best-preserved star-shaped fortresses in Europe, built in the shape of a pentagram. But unlike other similar fortifications, Kastellet is still in force: the fortress has its Commandant. You need to come here to take a walk along the shady paths, to feed the ducks, and also look at the royal guard’s equestrian exit and the old mill. There are even special barbecue areas.
The fortress is located near the monument to the Little Mermaid at Gl. Hovedvagt, Kastellet 1 and is open from 06:00 to 22:00.
For the restless of all ages, this museum is just a godsend, because in the Experimentarium you can learn everything about modern science and technology. Guests have at their disposal more than 300 exhibits, which not only can but also need to be touched, picked up and explored.
Only here you can feel like a great scientist, conducting real chemical experiments in the laboratory or exploring the mysteries of physics. And you can imagine yourself a spy or a scout, due to lie detectors and listening devices. To arrange a tornado, create real clouds or solve the riddle of optical illusions – all this is possible in the Experimentarium.
