Reading

Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket is one of the best museums for art lovers, not only for its great sculpture and art collections, but also because of its architectural design. The museum’s collection offers an insight into ancient Greece, the Egypt of the pharaohs and the French and Danish art of the 19th century. Another cultural stop for art connoisseurs is The National Gallery of Denmark. Its collection consists of French art of the early 1900s, including Picasso and Matisse, Danish and Nordic Art of 1750-1900 and other European artworks from 1300-1800. Finally, The National Museum of Denmark is definitely worth a visit, as it exhibits a great collection of artifacts that display Danish history from the ice age to contemporary times.

Copenhagen’s small size makes it the ideal city for discovering on foot. With Nørreport station as a starting point, walk down Frederiksborggade and in a few minutes you’ll be looking at some beautiful historic buildings and the city’s beautiful canals. The first stop should be The Round Tower. With a 25DKK (3,60 US$) entrance fee, you’ll get a glimpse of the city from 114 feet up (34.8 meters). Continue down the shopping street and a few minutes later you’ll find yourself enjoying the view of Slotsholmen canal. Christiansborg Palace, Thorvaldsens Museum and Børsen are situated there; three buildings that will take you on a journey through Danish history. At approximately 1312 feet (400 meters) further down the road, stands The Royal Library also known as Black Diamond, a piece of modern architecture every design aficionado must visit.

An easy and fun way to see Copenhagen’s sights is by taking a boat tour through the picturesque canals. With the company of a tour guide, the boat departs from Nyhavn or Gammel Strand and takes you to the city’s main attractions. National Bank of Denmark, the Opera, the Little Mermaid, Amaliehaven, Our Saviour’s Church are only some of which you’ll come across, while you sit back and enjoy the cool breeze. The price for an hour tour is 80DKK (11,43 US$) and 95DKK (13,60 US$) for a 48 hour valid ticket – perfect for a weekend.

Explore this hippy district with the cosy cafés and restaurants and taste the local cuisine’s delicacies. Café Loppen and Morgenstedet are two of the top options for a pitstop, while discovering the neighbourhood. Weather permitting, relax by the lake and take a stroll among the local colourful houses. If you’re in the mood for a cold beer, check-out Operaen Cafe or Woodstock, Christiania’s oldest bar. For a more detailed guide to Freetown Christiania, take a look here.
