Copenhagen Ideas

Great things to do in Copenhagen

Copenhagen by Canal

A boat tour heads down a canal in Copenhagen.

Copenhagen day tours have to include the water somehow. This ancient harbor city started as a fishing village after all. A 2 hour canal ride with a glass of wine or a beer is the perfect introduction to Copenhagen history. Seeing the Little Mermaid statue and Paper Island from the water is how they are meant to be seen. Runs March to December. – by Get Your Guide

Ultimate Danish Food and Beer

A group of tourists enjoy a beer tasting in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This tour pairs traditional Danish food tastes with stops at Torvehallerne for Michelin level cheeses and chocolate. Add in a Botanical Garden visit to understand the forest ingredients that are a new trend, as well as Nørrebro Bryghus for craft beer tasting and snacks. – by Viator

Billund Legoland Skip the Line

A lego version of Copenhagen's old harbor.

Legos were invented by a Danish woodworker in Billund. Lego means “play well” in Danish. How about that? Visiting the theme park dedicated to this beloved toy is a must, especially with a skip-the-line option. Themes include pirates, lasers, the Wild West and of course Vikings. There are are enormous builds to see, as well. – by Get Your Guide

Private Walking Tour of Copenhagen

Dating back to the 12th century, the city of Copenhagen oozes charm and quaintness. Frederiks Kirke and the Lurs Blower Column are special highlights, with a special stop at the shopping street of Stroeget. – by Viator
