About Copenhagen

The colourful historic buildings of Copenhagen are an iconic feature of the capital of Denmark. Once you arrive, you will discover many more reasons why this Scandinavian city is one of Europe’s top vacation destinations.

Copenhagen delivers a rich history, vibrant culture, and many tourist attractions and activities to experience. Locals enjoy a great lifestyle which is why Copenhagen is known as being the happiest city in the world. We are sure you will agree.

Copenhagen is very eco-friendly. It’s one of the greenest cities on the planet, with a goal to be carbon neutral by 2025.

Weather & Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Copenhagen is from March to May or between the months of June and August. Summer is beautiful with nice weather, but also room rates are at their highest and there are crowds to deal with. Spring is also nice and more affordable.

In May you can catch the Copenhagen Beer Festival and in June the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. There are many exciting festivals like these two throughout the year so check the calendar to see if your trip might coincide with some festive fun. 

Keep this in mind when you book your flight to Copenhagen from Toronto. You will land at Copenhagen Airport. There are many great deals going on Air Canada flights to Copenhagen.

Where to Stay

Copenhagen can be picky when it comes to booking accommodation, but you will find many options in the city centre and outskirt areas. Find the area that you wish to be and you will find the best hotel for your needs. Copenhagen caters to every kind of traveler, from budget to mid-range to luxury. 

Anderson Hotel is bright and colourful, making it a trendy option for the youthful or young-at-heart traveler. Located in the trendy Vesterbro area, this cool boutique hotel is near Copenhagen Central Station and Tivoli Gardens.

Another funky option for your accommodation is Nyhavn Hotel. The converted 19th-century warehouse has stylish rooms and suites with stunning harbour views and excellent customer service. 

For a truly luxurious stay, you will love Hotel D’Angleterre, complete with an elegant indoor swimming pool and luxurious spa. With wonderful views of Kongens Nytorv Square, this fancy hotel in a renovated 1755 building is the perfect place to be if you want to experience the hip bars and trendy restaurants of Nyhavn.

Things to Do

Indre By is the city’s historic centre. There you will admire Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century Rococo district and location of the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace. Nearby you can discover Christiansborg Palace and the Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle, surrounded by pristine gardens and where the crown jewels are kept.

Church Of Our Saviour is a truly stunning church with intricately carved pews and grand white arches framing the altar. The Baroque building from the mid-1700s has a tower that you can climb. It’s 400 steep steps to the peak and you can see amazing views from up there. 

For the finest shopping, head to the pedestrian street of Stroget. It has exclusive boutiques and high-street brands with designer stores down the side streets. Stop for lunch at a fancy restaurant and then shop for a few more hours. Stout is one of the world’s longest pedestrian-only shopping avenues and is usually very busy.

Nyhavn translates to New Harbour in English. This charming waterfront area is beside a 17th-century canal and you can still see old wooden ships moored. Those iconic painted houses that caught your eye in Instagram line the waterfront with many dating back to the 1600s and 1700s. Some are homes and some are bars, restaurants and cafes. Sit outside with a coffee and have your IG moment. Fun fact: The house numbers 18, 20 and 67 were once author Hans Christian Andersen’s homes. 

Copenhagen cooks up a storm with fantastic food for food lovers, including many Michelin-star restaurants if fine dining is your thing. For a gastronomic treat of a lifetime, book a table at Kokkeriet. This Danish Michelin restaurant promises an unconventional meal wrapped up in Danish history and culture. The food is soulful and full of meaning. You can go back another day and take a cooking class if you feel inspired by your dining experience.
