The Tourist Attractions of Copenhagen:
Denmark consists of a large peninsula, called Jutland, as well as 443 islands, the largest of which is Zealand and it’s home to the capital, Copenhagen.
The historical centre of Copenhagen is always a popular part of the city with tourists and understandably so. Called Indre By this is the historic downtown core of Copenhagen and this is where you’ll find many of the city’s hotels and restaurants, nightlife and shopping. In addition to all the services, the centre of Copenhagen also has many attractions including some beautiful architecture as well as museums and gardens.
The Marble Church
Known as the Marble Church, but officially called Frederick’s Church, this beautiful church has been one of Copenhagen’s major landmarks for nearly 300 years. The lower parts of the church are constructed of Norwegian Marble and the huge dome is also a major feature. You can enter the church for free throughout the day, or wait for once a day guided tour (for a fee) in which you get to go up into the dome for some great Copenhagen views.
Other Landmarks in Copenhagen
Copenhagen also has many other churches, palaces and castles and amongst these is the Rosenborg Castle that was completed in 1624. This beautiful renaissance style castle has been used as the royal residence in the past and its central location makes it a popular attraction today. It’s open to the public for tours including the attractive gardens.
Christiansborg is a palace that’s home to the Danish Parliament. It was completed in 1928 but stands on the foundations of a much earlier castle from the 12th century. Parts of the old castle have been excavated and can be visited by the public, as can some other parts of the building.
City Hall is also another important landmark. Standing on one of the city’s squares, City Hall is impressive both inside and out and you can admire it from both angles! There are guided tours available or you can wander around some of the corridors yourself.
One of Copenhagen’s more unusual attractions is a combination of gardens and amusement park. At first there were the Tivoli Gardens dating back to 1843 but now there are many things to do here including enjoying the lake, ferris wheel, roller coasters, and numerous other rides and attractions.
