Central Copenhagen is the heart of the city. The cobbled streets, alleyways and the green spires on the stunning buildings all serve as proof that this is where it all started. Since around the year 700, this area has had a city-like character, and its location made it ideal for trade.
Enjoy a meal and a cold beer in the world-famous Nyhavn, surrounded by charming houses and sailboats. Take a trip to the Tivoli Gardens Amusement Park or experience both royal palaces: Amalienborg, the royal family's residence, and Rosenborg, where the crown jewels are kept. Make sure to walk up and down the Strøget main street, to climb up Rundetårn (the Round Tower) or to bring a picnic basket to Kongens Have (the King's Garden).
