A small island is one of the main attractions of Copenhagen. Here is located most of the city's administrative buildings encl. Parliament. Tourists usually do not miss it. There are no houses, shops, restaurants and narrow pedestrian streets.

We had only allowed one day to visit the attractions and museums here. It is not enough. Some places don't open too early and others close too early so it is hard to fit the many, varied attractions into your day.
