What to Do in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is one of Europe's most enjoyable cities. Situated on the Oresund (Danish: Øresund) strait, with Sweden just minutes away by train, it is a link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia, and has a wealth of cultural and entertaining things to see and do.

The city has a reputation for tolerance, the fascinating 'free city' of Christiania, a community of people who have tried to create an equal and just consensus-governed democracy for its people. There is more to here than Carlsberg and The Little Mermaid, and a trip to the wonderful Tivoli Gardens will leave the visitor in no doubt that this is a very special city.

  • Climb the 400 steps to the top of the spire of Vor Frelsers Kirke in Christianshavn for panoramic views of Copenhagen.
  • See a play in the Royal Theater, or the new Opera (opened January 2005)
  • Tivoli, (Vesterbrogade 3), the world famous theme park in central Copenhagen. Entry 65 DKK, open 11-23 daily (longer on weekends). Main season is medio april-ultimo september. From medio november-ultimo december there is Christmas in Tivoli. In 2006 there will also be Halloween in Tivoli from 13.-22. October. Tivoli is especially beautiful at night when coloured lamps light up everywhere. Pop/rock concerts every Friday night, sometimes with internationally known names. (Be early). Some evenings end with fireworks, consult the program. Also brass bands, pantomime theater etc. on the program.
  • Niels Bohr Institute. If you are a physicist or just interested in physics, come to the Institute and see the room of Niels Bohr with photos of the staff of the institute when he was the head of it, a model of the famous thought experiment weighing the clock, the archive, the photos of all the famous people who were developing the quantum theory during the so-called "golden age of physics, when even small people could do big things" and also the modern part of the institute. The people at the archive are wiling to show the institute to other people, if they are not too busy, but you should make an appointment in advance.
  • Go on a harbour tour Canal tours, Netto Boats
  • Fælledparken. Located in Østerbro a few km north of the city centre, this large expanse of grass offers the perfect opportunity for a laid-back summers afternoon and evening - when weather permits! Buy a disposable grill, bread, meat and beer, and bring a frisbee, football or similar. Eat and play - there are playgrounds for the children. Be kind to the grass when placing the grill. Ørstedsparken is another park nearer to the center of the city, smaller and very pretty with a lake, two playgrounds and a cafe open during the summertime near the entrance from Ahlefeldtsgade/ Nørre Farimagsgade. It has a reputation for beeing a place where male homosexuals meet at night time.
  • Fri film Every summer a number of quality movies are played at night in open air at parks in Copenhagen. Entrance is free. Beer and popcorn are sold.
  • Beaches at Charlottenlund Fort, Charlottenlund and the re-builded Amager Strandpark (The Lagoon), metro Lergravsparken. Amager Strandpark opened in the summer of 2005after being rebuilded for a price of £20 million.

Or take a swim at the very popular designated swimming areas in the clean water of the Copenhagen harbour, but beware, it is very popular among the Danish people.

  • DGI Byen - a leisure centre and excellent swimming pool near the central railway station.

Annual events

  • Copenhagen Jazzfestival, Tel: +45 33932013, email: info@jazzfestival.dk. Held in early July, 10 days of jazz everywhere in Copenhagen. In parks, cafes, clubs, theaters etc.
