Cultural activities

Lonely Planet has named Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen as its top city to visit in 2019! Architecturally impressive with monuments and attractions such as Christiansborg Palace, Nyhavn Harbour, a centuries-old harbour surrounded by colourful buildings, and the Glyptotek Art Museum, there will be opportunities throughout the trip to explore the cities highlights.

For those interested in Danish history and culture, Nationalmuseet (Denmark’s National Museum) is a must visit, as is the Dutch Renaissance style Rosenborg Castle and Ruins under Christiansborg, the crypt-like ruins of Slotsholmen’s original fortress. In addition, you can enjoy the city on foot by joining one of the many free walking tours offered in Copenhagen.

The city offers a host of bars, restaurants and galleries with vibrant areas such as the Meatpacking District and Vesterbro, both at the forefront of Nordic cuisine as well as trendy hot spots for locals and tourists alike.
