Wonderful fresh sushi with a twist. Appeals to grown ups and children,
A Balinese boutique style hotel with personal service and a delicious organic breakfast.
Delicious gourmet style French food, great service. I recommend the steak with Foie Gras and the pistachio dessert plate.
A 5 star hotel at 4 star prices. Modern and exciting in design. Very central.
Wonderfully Danish, very busy and excellent Danish dishes. The platter with various small portions of Danish delicacies is amazing for tourists... and locals.
The original amusement park which was an inspiration for Disney land. But so much nicer, cosy, beautiful gardens, with rides and restaurants.
Nyhavn is a small harbour area where you can take the sightseeing boat trip which is worth it. You are taken to see the Little Mermaid from the seaside and around the various canals in Copenhagen. It is always enjoyable, but enchanting on a nice day. Nyhavn itself is very busy with restaurants and bars, popular with locals.
The Little Mermaid is from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales. The statue is smaller than you would expect, but absolutely charming. It can be seen from the seaside when you take the sightseeing boat trip from Nyhavn.
Main shopping street with no traffic. Lots of restaurants, but more important are the department stores, Illum and Magasin. You will also find Georg Jensen Silver store and Royal Porcelain store there. Illums Bolighus is also worth a visit for the trendy and design interested.
This castle was a functioning castle once. Today it is a quaint castle for a visit, it feels intimate. The Danish Queen's jewels are exhibited there too and well worth seeing.
A beautiful museum with a mixture of art worth seeing. There will be something for every taste. Houses a wonderful painting collection too.
This is the Queen's residence when in Copenhagen. One part of the set of buildings has a museum which features different exhibitions. Always interesting. The Queen is usually part of the planning for these exhibitions.
This is a well run zoo. It is placed in the Frederiksberg part of town and children will love it. Famous for feeding an inbred giraffe to the lions, seemed brutal, but the zoo felt it would keep future breeding of giraffes healthier.
For those interested in modern design, which is a way of life in Denmark. Everyone cares about what furniture they have in their houses and most have the latest in design in their kitchens or on display.
A wonderful collection of classical Danish paintings. A great pleasure and a bit of a gem.
A fairly new and very modern museum on Jews in Denmark. Worthwhile visiting. Especially since the Danish Resistance Museum is being rebuilt after a fire.
If the collection of modern art is not as exciting as you would want, the situation of this museum must be one of the most beautiful in the world.
A hidden gem, popular with locals. Amazing cocktails, all made from base. Staff are knowledgable and will help you decide on which cocktail will appeal to you. Quite small, but worth it.
