The city is characterized by low-rise buildings surrounded by groups of six-story period buildings. Copenhagen’s feature, which makes it unique in the world, is that it was the first, in 1962, to create a pedestrian area closed to cars to keep it clean from smog and quiet from noise. It is also not reached by pollution due to the absence of large industrial plants in the area.
If you go to Copenhagen, some stops are mandatory:
The Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid Statue is considered one of Copenhagen’s symbols, placed in the custody of the port and built to embellish it. It is said that the founder of the Carlsberg brewery went to the theater one evening to watch the Little Mermaid show and was so impressed that he immediately asked the artist Edward Eriksen to create a statue of the beautiful mermaid. The sculptor immediately went to work, taking his wife as a model, and realized the work in 1913. The figure of the Little Mermaid is a bronze sculpture 1.25 m tall and weighs 175 kg.
This is the oldest amusement park in the world, where history and tradition are interconnected continuously. It is an important meeting point for the locals: families with children, business people on their lunch break, young people taking part in concerts and seniors walking.
When you will be in the Tivoli Gardens, and you will see the fireworks, you will feel the scent of flowers and rock music notes. It will mean that summer has arrived in Copenhagen! If, on the other hand, you want to experience the thrill of attractions, you can climb the spectacular Demon roller coaster or take a relaxing ride on small boats.
In Elsinore, the wonderful Kronborg castle, 10 minutes by train from Copenhagen, is one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe. Known throughout the world for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this castle is visited by around 200,000 people every year, including Danes and tourists from all over the world. In 1580 King Frederick II commissioned, together with 113 other Danish kings, the manufacture of 40 tapestries, currently exhibited in one of the castle’s rooms.
Nyhavn (new port)
Port-channel is also very characteristic for its colorful houses all occupied by restaurants and bars. A must, both for the day and evening visits when everything is illuminated. It is a favorite place to eat, especially in the evening. It is interesting to do the tour on foot and pleasant to take time with the boat that enters the canal.
There is a massive choice of restaurants and bars with more or less similar prices in a very crowded but safe place.
Rosenborg Castle is one of the most beautiful historic buildings in all of Copenhagen. Built-in typical Dutch Renaissance style, Christian IV was commissioned, who called two renowned architects of the time, naming Hans van Steenwinckel and Bertel Lange, to build his grand residence. The castle was completely created in 1606 but, in the following centuries, it was further enlarged. It was used as a royal residence for only eighty years until 1720. In fact, since 1833, the castle and its gardens have been open to the public.
