What to see

Assistens Kirkegård

Visit link

Recommended by Jess Stopa, Organizer

A cemetery from 1760 in the middle of a bustling city, and final resting place for some of the most popular Danes in history, such as Niels Bohr, Søren Kierkegaard and H.C. Andersen. It offers some peace and (almost) quiet away from the busy streets of Nørrebro. Here you will find next of kin visiting lost family, people walking their dogs, couples hand in hand and groups of people relaxing on the small patches of grass throughout.

Botanical Garden

Visit link

Recommended by Lars Schou, Organizer

Botanical Garden is a really beautiful and calm place to see - it both has an indoor and outdoor area. The indoor areas is just beautiful on all the flowers and plants, but the outdoor area grounds up to a park where you can sit and chill and just enjoy the atmosphere.

Changing of the Guard, Amalienborg

Visit link

Recommended by Emil Hørlyck, Organizer

Situated in the heart of Copenhagen, Amalienborg Palace serves as the official residence of the Danish royal family. Comprising four identical buildings encircling the central palace square, visitors can explore the area freely. Stroll around and catch glimpses of the guards adorned in their distinctive uniforms and furry hats, standing watch over the royal family. Each day, the Royal Guard conducts a ceremonial march through Copenhagen's streets, culminating at Amalienborg. At noon, the changing of the guard takes place, where the outgoing watch is relieved, and the new watch assumes duty. To witness this iconic event, ensure you arrive at Amalienborg on time. It stands as one of Copenhagen's most iconic experiences! Photography with the guards is permitted, but maintain a respectful distance.

Christiania

Recommended by Kristian Just, Organizer

It's a special place, that is not seen in other Scandinavian countries.

Church of our Saviour

Fantask

Visit link

Recommended by Daniel Ditlev Dale, Speaker

It is the oldest existing comic book store in the world. And if the rumor is true is the shop where Matt Groening got his inspiration for the Simpson character 'Comic Book Guy'. Never go to Copenhagen without visiting this place!

Goboat

Visit link

Recommended by Jens Just Iversen, Speaker

Goboat is a company renting out small boats, and it is the perfect way to see Copenhagen from the many canals and have a picnic on the water.

Netto Boats

Visit link

Recommended by Michele Hansen, Speaker

A boat tour is an enjoyable and time-efficient way to sightsee in Copenhagen! You’ll get to see all of the major sites - the stock exchange, Parliament, Castle, Little Mermaid statue, and more. The boats leave from Nyhavn, which is also worth seeing! Note: I recommend the Netto Boats, rather than the other company, as they’re much cheaper but the exact same experience.

The Royal Library

Visit link

Recommended by Peter Suhm, Speaker

I love grabbing a coffee and getting some work done in the Black Diamond. Make sure you take the escalators up and walk around the building. I also really love the little hidden park behind the library.

The danish version of the hot dog is a must-try - preferably ordered with the whole shebang ('med det hele' in Danish) at a classic hot dog stand.

Hidmona

Visit link

Recommended by Peter Suhm, Speaker

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Copenhagen. Get ready to eat with your hands! It's in Nørrebro, so you will experience a very different part of the city than central Copenhagen. This is where "normal" people live in Copenhagen — make sure you walk around the neighborhoods.

Combine your dinner with a great selection of beer at brewpub Warpigs. The brewpub is situated in the meat Packing district and the interior has kept the white and brown tiles on the wall and floor.

Recommended by Jens Just Iversen, Speaker

Hvide Lam is an authentic old bar from the year 1807, that to this day still serves cold beers and live jazz music every night. If you are hungry you can buy danish "smørrebrød" and wash it down with a schnapps.

Explore the Harbour

Visit link

Recommended by Peter Suhm, Speaker

I love taking the habour bus (it's a ferry) around the harbour — especially the new electric ferries that are very silent. It's public transportation so it's a very cheap and comfortable way to explore the city. I'll sometimes get half an hour work done just hanging out on the ferry if it isn't crowded.

The staff can recount the most naughty stories from this fine old restaurant.

A cultural gem, centrally located. Stroll past the colorful buildings and enjoy a quick bite to eat. From Nyhavn you are close to the royal castle (Amalienborg), Kongens Nytorv (main plaza). This is also where the canal tours start from.
