COPENHAGEN CRUISES

COPENHAGEN HIGHLIGHTS

Copenhagen has it all, whichever way you look at it. Let’s begin with its cultural heritage, which ranges from Viking relics to Danish Golden Age art. Embrace your inner culture vulture at the Nationalmuseet or the Statens Museum for Kunst. Spend an afternoon discovering the city’s distinct neighbourhoods on Copenhagen cruises – Nyhavn is perhaps the most famous, with its ice cream-coloured architecture, peaceful canal-side location and bustling walkways. It was once home to the writer Hans Christian Andersen, whose story The Little Mermaid also served as inspiration for the city’s most famous statue. Next up on your Copenhagen checklist is Tivoli Gardens, which date back to 1843. This nostalgic amusement park features stage shows, rollercoasters (some over a century-old) and carnival games that will delight children and adults alike. We suggest visiting after sunset, when twinkling fairy lights give the gardens a magical, Disney-like appeal. Continue your travels back in time with a visit to the Rosenborg Slot, a 17th century Renaissance style castle that was once King Christian IV’s summer house. The castle’s exquisitely landscaped gardens are just as impressive as its 24 decadent upper rooms, which are arranged in chronological order to give an overview of the building’s history.
