Things to do and Places of Interest in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is home to many sites, but some of the more notable include the Little Mermaid, which is a sculpture on Langelinje Pier. Another must-see attraction is Tivoli Gardens, which is an amusement park that all tourists love to explore. The Christiansborg Palace is breath-taking, and so is the famous Kronborg Castle.

Tips and Tricks for Visiting Copenhagen

Danes are Generally Happy

You will notice that the Danish people are always happy and welcoming.

Watch for Cyclists

Whether walking, driving, or just crossing the street, be cautious about people riding their bikes. They are fast cyclists who can keep up with most vehicles in the city; and they do not readily stop for pedestrians.

Michelin Star Restaurants are Plentiful

You will find restaurants throughout Copenhagen with high Michelin Star ratings, including Noma and Relae.

Copenhagen is Eco-Friendly

Denmark is a country that is very particular about environmental awareness and responsibility. You will notice that most hotel rooms are eco-friendly, items are made from organic materials, and they practice high environmental standards.

Denmark Does Not Use the Euro

Many UK natives are surprised to find that Denmark uses the Danish krone and not the euro. Unlike many other parts of the world, bank notes in this country have pictures of bridges instead of famous people. When dining at restaurants, you can tip a minimal amount. Rounding up the amount for the tip is customary, while large tips are not usually expected.
